Everyone is photogenic. We all have the potential to look absolutely stunning in photographs. It’s just a matter of presenting our best features and looking for ways to make ourselves look as good as possible. If you find yourself frustrated by how you look in photos, you likely just need to make a few slight adjustments. Here are four tricks to make your more photogenic.
Have you ever looked at a photo of yourself and grimaced at your smile? Was it so stiff and lifeless that it looked less like a smile and more like you were forcing the corners of your mouth up? A fake smile is easy to spot and can be easily remedied. One of the classic ways to smile genuinely is to say “cheese” before the photo is taken. If that feels too silly for you, just think of a funny memory that always makes you laugh. That will give you a look of sincere glee that will make your photo look all the better.
Whiten Your Teeth
A big toothy smile can really take your photos to the next level in terms of appeal. If you feel self-conscious about your teeth, it might be due to their color. Luckily, there are options available for you. You can use white strips found at most pharmacies and grocery stores. You can also consult with a dentist like Blue Apple Dental or someone similar about whitening options. Odds are likely that you won’t need any sort of radical overhaul, just a general whitening to truly make your teeth shine.
If you have a tendency to slouch (in photos and other aspects of life), now’s the time to stop. Not only does it have negative effects on your health, it also makes you look unmotivated and disinterested. When posing for a photo, take a moment to straighten your spine and bring your stomach in. Just a few inches can make a huge difference in terms of making you look great in photos.
You don’t have to be dressed like you’re going to the Oscars to look nice in photos. However, you should still make a point of dressing as well as you possibly can. Your clothes should be clean and your outfits should be properly coordinated. You should also make sure they are free of wrinkles and properly fitted.
We hope this has given you a good idea of how to be more photogenic. You don’t need to have supermodel looks to take high-quality photos. Instead, you just need to do all you can to make yourself look as good as possible.
