Remember the good old school picture days where we didn’t really care about how we looked? Most of us don’t look that great in those pictures and since the “majority” didn’t either, we never really worried about it but now pictures are everywhere, we take them where ever we go and for every occasion. Looking bad in pictures can decrease the self-esteem of a person. The reason why some of us aren’t that photogenic is simply because of the way we pose.So, don’t worry if your pictures don’t come out right, a few tweaks here and there can help you out.
Know which side to pose with
Many people’s face is asymmetrical, so they might have one side that looks good and another that might highlight all the flaws in the face, so try changing the side you are posing with. Sometimes this might be all you need to solve your “ugly” picture issue.What’s the one thing in common in your school picture, driving license and ID? Well, you are looking directly at the camera with your head straight, this is why nobody looks good in these pictures. So, maybe you are posing the same way in all your other pictures, just go through your pictures and look at the way you pose, try tilting your face towards the good side and see the difference.
Your smile matters
Well, this is a problem I had, I sucked in pictures simply because I didn’t know how to smile. I tend to force the smile just for the picture and as a result, some of my muscles around my face are tensed up giving a weird smile. Here’s a tip, close your eyes and open it slowly (not too slow) and smile right before the picture, this would help you look more natural and will momentarily reset the awkwardness in your face.Have you looked at your teeth? Are they aligned perfectly? Crooked teeth can make it look bad even when you aren’t showing the teeth in the pictures, so visit your dentist to see if there are any misalignment in your teeth.
Furthermore, a dull and yellowish tooth can also be highlighted in your picture, making you look bad, if this is an issue, you can get some teeth whitening Camberwell done at a clinic in order to enhance the smile.And finally, you need to learn to relax, taking pictures while knowing that you look bad can tense you up, so relax and think of happy thoughts while following the above-mentioned tips. This will definitely make your pictures look better.
