There’s a reason people entrust a professional photographers with beautiful pictures. Its not the case all the time. So here is the first tip for a good pose. Try to avoid any head-on shots. For right photos, there should be right amount of shadows and light. The absence of former aspect makes you face look large, wide or uneven. The secret is to stand sideways. Keep your chin in a slanting position, slightly upward or downward. Make sure to keep your vision in an elevated position i.e. above your natural sight area.

Do you know what makes a photograph beautiful? A lovely smile. Any photograph without a smile makes the person look a tad dull, irked or annoyed. Well, here’s how to get the right smile. Best pictures are one of those that happen during random moments when you look natural, calm, collected and effortless. Never smile too wide or you’ll look silly. Why? When you smile to the ears, it makes your eyes squint, face tensed, cheeks puffed up that is recipe of an unattractive photograph nobody would want. 

Then, what’s the solution? First relax your five senses and your face. Open  your mouth just a little bit to match the curve of upper teeth. This pose is very flattering. Not only does it give you the choice to use your grinned pose cleverly but also works for people who don’t like to show teeth during a smile. If you hate showing a teethy-smile, then try ‘smizing’ which means smiling with your eyes. 

Try these clever tricks to appear slim and stylish in your photographs. You’d be surprised at how fabulous you’ll appear in your photographs that will earn everyone’s admiration. Next time your friend tags you in her pics, she’ll have to work very hard to find your faulty pic because there’ll be none. Be the queen of selfie-century and glamorous diva while posing for shutterbugs. When someone looks at your photograph, people should think, the camera was romancing you and fell in love with your beauty. All you need to do is, smile and be confident.
