Are you as bad as me…You hate every single picture someone takes of you?
I’m beginning to think I’m “bad subject” material…LOL!!
Maybe this is the answer.
How to look more photogenic? And from someone who should know….a professional photographer. Peter Hurley is his name. He says there are just tricks to know.
And he promises they will make you instantly look more photogenic every time.
Squint. Not a lot just a little and with a small closed-lip smile. He says you want to make the face you’d make if you knew a secret and it was making you a little cocky. Just make sure you don’t squint all the way…a la Gilbert Gottfried because that is not attractive. It’s more like a “knowing” smile with your eyes just a little big squinted instead of wide open, and a lot of confidence.
Stick your entire head forward a little bit. Try sticking your forehead toward the camera and keeping your chin out. That prevents any double chin and gives you a good jaw line.
What do you think? Let me know how it works for you!
I already know the answer for me….No matter what I do I still won’t like my picture!!!
