If you like taking photographs and if you love being captured in photographs, chances are you’ve fallen victim to the plague known as unflattering pictures. Confidence level aside, even the prettiest lady in the world could fall into the abyss of what we know as bad angles & poor lighting. So as your trusted photo booth provider, we’re cracking the secrets of looking fabulous in all of your pictures. We want you, our client, to get only the best pictures from your event.
1. Tongue on Roof
One of the most trusted technique that artists and models use is flattening your tongue to the roof of your mouth. This helps you avoid the dreaded double chin that can suddenly appear in pictures though you’re pretty sure you never even had it in the first place. Remember to push your tongue upwards, not downwards! Tongue down will give you the pudgy cheeks look.
2. Important Angles
The reason why you should never snap photos head-on is because there will be an absence of shadows to provide you with the naturally shaded facial shape. Remember to give your head a little nudge upwards or downwards to avoid your face looking wider and in turn, larger & disproportionate.
3. A Little Twist
Give your shoulder and hips a little twist away from the camera to create an elongated silhouette. Position your body 45 degrees and put the arm closest to the camera on your hip. Then plant one foot slightly in front of the other, point your toe to the camera and place your weight on your back leg.
4. No Copycats
When in a group, never fall victim to the temptation to imitate your friend’s pose. Everyone’s shining out in their own way but everyone is shaped differently, so the viewer’s eye will naturally gravitate to who looks best in the pose, not the picture. Be sure to stand comfortably without mimicking the people directly next to you.
