A photograph may only capture a single moment but unfolds some great stories. Years later, the photograph brings back some wonderful memories of what happened before, during and after the picture was snapped. While looking at these, we all notice that people who are naturally beautiful, don`t come out as gorgeous in pictures. On the other hand, some people simply look amazing in photographs even if they are not so good looking in reality. So, what is the secret?
How well a photograph is clicked depends a great deal on the photographer, however, the poser also has some control over how well she turns out in the snap. Everyone can look superb in photographs, given that they follow a few simple tricks.
Wear loads of makeup. We are living in the age of digital cams that easily pick up every blemish on the face, therefore, wearing foundation and concealer is a must. As eyes are the most attractive feature, one must define her eyes using a thick eyeliner and give volume to eyelashes with mascara.
Flash of the camera adds a bit of shine to the face that`s why one should go easy on the shimmery makeup. Rather use a matte makeup and apply slight shimmer for a healthy glow. Use blush/bronze to give cheeks a bit of dewy look. Those who have an oily skin should always keep blotting sheets with them so that extra shine can be cast out when required.
The next in line after makeup is pose. Sitting/standing straight and keeping shoulders back is important otherwise one will look bulky. Since a camera adds 10 pounds to the poser, one must ensure that she is looking slimmer. Here are several tips to make one appear trimmer than she actually is:
Those who have bingo wings (flabby arms) should always place their hands on their hips to make them appear slimmer.
Turning one`s body and/or face 3/4 angle to the camera will create a leaner visual effect.
One can shift her weight to one leg (one that’s away from camera) in order to make her legs look longer and trimmer.
Women with round belly should try and suck in their stomach during the shoot.
Those insecure about specific body parts such as hips, tummy and thighs should cover them with their hands or some props.
Slightly tilting head upwards and to the side will eliminate any chance of showing double chin.
To add a more natural look to the photograph, one must lean a bit towards the camera.
Light is another factor that effects a photograph that`s why poser should consider the source of light. Make it a pint to face towards light as it reduces the chances of unpleasing shadows ruining the picture. In case the photographer is well-versed and experienced, one should not hesitate to ask him which direction she should face during the shoot for better effects.
Following these easy steps will certainly make one look amazing in each and every photograph. Last but not the least, one should never forget to smile and be confident for adding natural beauty and warmth to the snapshot.
