Ugh! No way! Don’t take my picture! Has a loved one ever told you that? It is so sad to look at family pictures and never see a certain love one because they wouldn’t allow their picture to be taken.
If you are guilty of this remember we don’t take pictures for ourselves but for our loved ones. A picture is not just an image it is a memory. It is important to preserve our memories of all our loved ones. Your loved one doesn’t see you as fat or ugly they see you as a cherished loved one. Allow them to take your picture.
If you are truly self conscious of your looks practice posing in a mirror. YouTube has many wonderful videos that will show you how to pose yourself for pictures. I have included a YouTube video below that demostrates how to pose.
Find out what angle and height the camera should be to create the most flattering picture of yourself. A good photographer will already know this but an armature http://youtu.be/y58mkKh_0Gwwill need directions.
If you see a picture that is so unflattering grit your teeth and say to yourself, “The Things We Do For Love.”
