Picture Perfect

26 Dec

New Year’s Eve is right around the corner and with that comes the taking of the photos.  Don’t be intimidated, you don’t have to look perfect to take a perfect picture. Here are a few tips to help make solving photo issues a snap.

Less Posing – If your mind is focused on something other than the photo, you’ll appear less rigid. Never keep your hands right by your sides, clasp them in the front or in the back, or hold on to a glass or your eyeglasses to help relax your body.

Fake Flawless Skin – Get as much light on your face as possible. Use a flash inside and outside because the light of the flash will bounce off the skin, illuminate it, and conceal facial imperfections.

Lose the Double Chin -Project your chin out an inch or so more than you normally would. You may feel a bit awkward, like a giraffe, but you’ll have a long, thin neck in the photo.

Keep Your Eyes Open – Close your eyes and have the photographer count to three. On three, open them. Works every time.

Lose the Deer-in-the-Headlights Look -Don’t look straight into the lens. Focus your eyes just above the lens instead of staring directly into the camera.

Using any or all of the tips will ensure this year’s photos are picture perfect !
