So after spending over 10 years of my career literally taking pictures all day I have discovered a few tricks to looking your best on camera. The same outfit, taken on the same day at the same time. Just a few tricks used to make me look literally 10 pounds thinner (umm side note isn’t this polka dot romper way too cute? Details below about the outfit)
- The prop (the purse in this photo) was used to cover the widest part of my thigh making the rest of my body look leaner and smaller
- I am standing at a 3/4 angle, the straight on angle is making your body totally flat to the camera and therefore making it even wider looking than it really is (making 3d shapes 2d makes them look bigger than they are)
- Movement! My back leg is bent, my arm is bent and that creates more places for the eye to go. This creates more places for the eye to go and tricks the eye.
I really hope that these 3 hacks help you to feel more confident in photos and love the way you look!
