You shouldn’t be caught off-guard, because the phone is going to come out to take pictures, and you will always want the best pictures of you taken.
It sucks when your photos turn out less than flattering, but there are actually ways to trick a camera into thinking that you’re more photogenic than you are.
Here are some tips that you can use to help you look beautiful in your photos.
Lighting is everything
From Kim Kardashian to Tyra Banks, everyone knows that lighting is the single most important factor when it comes to taking good photos. Lighting can smooth your skin, hide wrinkles, and shadow just the right parts of your face and body to create the most beautiful shapes and lines. In general, when taking a photo it’s important to make sure that you find the light with your face, and angle your body so that the areas you want highlighted are closest to the light source. The best lighting for photos is soft, diffused light – like on a bright cloudy day. Make sure to avoid light that comes from directly above your head – no one wants to look like a criminal being interrogated!
