Aren’t all of us nervous when the camera person
appears? Are we standing the right way? Is the chin straight? It happens due to
our experiences of looking dull in pictures before. Let us delete all those
ordinary photographs to make way for really smart ones. Stand back as you will
witness the secrets of looking better in photographs.
Keeping things conventional
If you want to look smarter in your photographs
then being ‘conventional’ works. You
will have to sacrifice on funny photos, and eccentric angles as your charming
flair might not gain attention on a public platform.
People with admired social media profiles
hardly post goofy photos of themselves for they have to play safely in order to
maintain the amount of respect them possess. Females are required to show off
their natural style and intelligence, while men can stick to classic outfits
for better recognition.
However, if you’re known for pulling off goofy
stuff, then there is no need to pose pictures where you are faking a calm
Boring portraits look really good but on rare
occasions- like graduation pics and yearbook photos. In general, people like
photographs that display some form of activity. Such photos are considered
smart, entertaining and elite. If you have a hobby, then click some pictures of
you in action. Not only will your followers see something refreshing, but
others sharing the same interests will also get in touch.
For instance, you can show your football or
artistic skills to become a unique identity and command other’s interest.
Do not over smile
Remember, an open-mouthed smile won’t please
people other than the ones who already admire you. Although, you might be
giving your most genuine smile yet people who do not know you could see you as
Yes, you should smile but do not oversell you
clean and white teeth. Females should avoid a grin and men should go for a
close-mouthed smile with a bit enlarged eyes. As a rule of thumb, you will
become highly likeable if you do not try to impress others.
You might have heard it since times immemorial
but would have hardly noticed the difference eyewear makes. Now, we are not talking about the diamond cut
supermodels that do not need glasses to portray face symmetry. We are focusing on the general public that
has a lot of flaws ranging from crooked nose to a disproportionate jawline.
Eyewear has the power to make our face look in
proportion in regard to the camera angles. It allows us to stay sharp and also
hide our eyes which have not been trained to characterize a certain emotion.
Do not slouch
Hunching will make you look lethargic and
shorter, no matter how tall or active you are. It will also result in unwanted
stomach rolls, which is something nobody wants to show off in their pictures.
Remember to straighten up and stand tall to showcase the real you.
Practice your stance, poses and smile in the
mirror, and you will become comfortable with the camera.
