    I don't know how any of you feel about having your photo taken, but I personally can't stand it. I give off an awkward vibe and feel ridiculous trying to take direction from someone attempting to pose me. It's not the photographer's fault, it's always mine. I'm sure part of it has to do with a lack of confidence and my life-long struggle with being shy, but I have such a hard time getting out of my head and relaxing! Photoshoots are supposed to be fun, so the next time you find yourself feeling silly during one, follow these simple tricks to bring out your best self in any picture. Ready? [​IMG] [​IMG]
    Be Carefree

    The last thing anyone wants is to look uncomfortable in a photo. It's important to be yourself and have fun! An easy pose that helps break that straight, rigid look so many of us gravitate towards is the 'S' shape. Also, if you want to utilize your pockets, make sure that you only put your thumbs in them.

    Turn Your Body

    By turning your body away from the camera bythree quarters, you will create a leaner look. On top of that, having your hands properly placed, like in this photo, gives you a more graceful appearance. It's amazing how two simple changes can completel transform a photo! [​IMG]
    Watch Your Hands

    In the first two photos, you saw how much of a difference hand placement can make. If you are going to have them anywhere near your face, make sure they follow your natural contours and avoid having your palms facing the camera. As you can see in this example, the first attempt looks much more awkward than the second. [​IMG]
    Low Shoulders

    This is another great example showing why it's so important not to hide your hands for certain poses. Also, slightly lowering your shoulder improves the look because it elongates the neck and makes you seem more relaxed.
    Bend Your Knee

    Creating the 'S' shape mentioned earlier improves a side shot by making you look slim and comfortable. This can easily be achieved by bending your knee and dropping the shoulders. [​IMG]
    The Head Tilt

    This is a super important tip to follow whenever you are having headshots taken: never look directly into the camera! Instead, turn your body and slightly tilt your head, which will drastically enhance the look of your portraits.
