Jag hittade dessa ovärderliga tips för oss som kämpar med att bli bättre på bild, eller känna sig bekväma med det (som i mitt fall!). Jag har alltid avskytt kameror när jag själv måste vara i bild, och grunden ligger helt i att jag anser mig själv vara helt ofotogenisk. Jag har mina anledningar till att jobba på mina vinklar, dels för att jag ska sluta gömma mig när andra vill ta kort – vilket jag själv avskyr när folk gör – men också för att det är trist att aldrig ha bilder att kunna titta tillbaka på från vardag, fest, resor och högtider! Bilder är ju minnen och jag har alldeles för få av dem.
// I just found a few tricks written down by 3 models on how to look good in front of the camera! I think i found them at WhoWhatWear.com but i´m not sure so please correct me if you know i´m wrong!!!
Scroll down for five secrets on how to look photogenic in every snap!
1 of 5 Light is everything
“Always find the best light! Shaded sunlight, or soft light during dusk and dawn are best. High noon light will put shadows under your eyes. Use your camera phone to find the best light on your face.” – Martha Hunt
“Pay attention to lighting and you will see when and how your skin, hair and eye color can come to life!” – Caroline Trentini
“Lighting is your best friend! If the lighting is on point you will look amazing. Oh and definitely confidence!” – Jennifer Humphrey
2 of 5 Know and own your look
“Every girl has a good side or a strong quality to show. So, really highlight that quality, practice and have fun with it. Do a lot of practice on your cellphone, like a selfie or looking in the mirror. That will help you know your own look much more.” – Caroline Trentini
“Try looking at your different angles in the mirror, or in pictures to find your better side. Angle that side of your face to the camera. You can’t always help it based off of the position of the camera, or the light, so be prepared to work with any set.” – Martha Hunt
“I think someone that is photogenic just knows her face and body more than someone who isn’t. She knows what will look good!” – Jennifer Humphrey
3 of 5 Your body angle and outfit go hand in hand
“It’s best to practice your pose beforehand to see what pose the outfit looks best in, and what’s more flattering for your body. I’ve learned this the hard way. Now I practice with a friend or stylist before a red carpet event. Even for a photo shoot I see if the outfit looks better posed or in movement. It all depends on the outfit” – Martha Hunt
4 of 5 It´s all in the eyes
“If I don’t smize, I can look really angry and just plain miserable. It’s all about the spark in the eye!” – Martha Hunt
“Smizing gives you a little spark, so think of a happy moment or a special person and squeeze your eyes a little.” If you’re trying to make your eyes seem bigger, “raise your eye brow and breathe out through your mouth—it really works.” – Caroline Trentini
“Smizing makes you look more approachable.” – Jennifer Humphrey
5 of 5 Don´t force a photo
“Always take the shot when you are actually happy and in a natural, happy environment. I would avoid forced situations like pretending you are having a good time…really do have fun before you take a picture!” – Caroline Trentini
“Laugh to yourself before to project a genuine smile. What I do sometimes to loosen up my face and lips is just laugh to myself or motor boat my lips to loosen up those muscles.” – Jennifer Humphrey
