9 Easy Ways to Look Better in Photos
This time of year can be a minefield of potentially awkward family reunion photos, unflattering cookout pics and more snaps that just want to make you hit “untag." Even if you love the way you look in person, it takes a little practice to make sure your in-the-flesh beauty translates on camera. The good news? Being photogenic is a skill you can totally master.
Here are a few of our favorite tips that will help you bring out your inner super model:
1. Are you a blinker? If you have a tendency to blink in photos, close your eyes just before the picture is taken and open them slowly before the camera clicks. Problem solved!
2. Show the left side of your face. Usually the left side of the face is more attractive.
3. Positioning is everything. If you are going to be in a group photo, don't stand the closest to the camera. Position yourself on an even plane with the other people in the photo or you'll end looking disproportionally larger. And nobody wants that.
4. Leverage a lower angle. Taking the photo from a lower angle will make you appear taller and leaner!
5. Tilt your face. Don't look squarely into the camera, the tilt gives your features more depth. Well hello there, cheekbones.
6. Cropping skills are excellent skills. If you are lucky enough to be the one posting the photo, crop it so your entire body fills the frame. It creates vertical length.
7. Use your teeth. Put your tongue behind your teeth while you smile. This helps avoid a too-wide grin. Remember to smile with your eyes so you don't look angry.
8. Money, not cheese. The hard e sound at the end of "money" makes the corners of your mouth go up and makes your eyes crinkle creating a genuine rather than a cheesy (no pun intended) smile!
9. Think red carpet. Put your hand on your hip, angle your body to the side and turn your head towards the camera. It's a little cliche', but it works!
It is unusual for anyone to know what will happen on "The Bachelor" or "The Bachelorette." Everyone signs non-disclosure agreements, leaving gossip magazines and websites to speculate and predict who will win and whether the couple will get engaged or not. Rachel Lindsay is breaking protocol.
