Painless Posing


While teenagers across the world may adore shooting ‘selfies,’ many of us prefer to hide whenever a camera comes out. We are often most critical of ourselves, and this is true especially in photos. With a quick tip or two, we can take a bit of angst out of posing so that your smile will be an authentic one.

Don’t turn your body squarely in front of the camera. We often know which side is our ‘best side,’ so position your body accordingly. Simply tilt your body at an angle and, if possible, bend your elbows so there is a bit of open space between your arm and your body. Photographers use this popular posing tip because they understand that creating pleasing portraits includes the ability to use body angles advantageously. Also, press your chin out forward just a bit. It may feel odd but it works!
