General rules

Do not be afraid to take risks

In addition to these tips, there are also rules for photogenicity,followed by all photo models.

- Naturalness. If you do not have the task to enter into some kind of image, then the best thing is not to put anything in yourself. The contrived posture and the expression on your face that is not typical of you will look strange in the picture. Better show yourself, your personality, be unique.

- Listen to the photographer. He is your friend and, as well as you are interested in ensuring that you are good at his pictures. In addition, he is better seen from the side of what you need to do to make the photo perfect. He can give you good advice. Do not be afraid to tell the photographer if something does not suit you or you are just uncomfortable.

Beauty in simplicity

- Rehearse in front of the mirror. In order for the photo to correctly reflect your personality or the chosen image, you need to look at yourself from the side, which poses, gestures and facial expressions look advantageous in this situation. But if you do not have time to prepare, you can use the following universal techniques:

  • watch your posture;
  • straighten your shoulders;
  • bend your back - it looks spectacular;
  • pull in the belly;
  • if you want to look slimmer, then you need to lower your arms along your torso;
  • if you do not know where you can put your hands, then take something or just play with your hair.

- Hold a pose. It is not necessary after each click of the camera to immediately change the position. Give the photographer the opportunity to make at least a few frames, and only then change his position. This is due to the fact that instantly assess whether a shot is successful or not is very difficult. To create it, every little thing matters, and restoring the pose in the smallest detail is almost impossible. In addition, during photography, it is best to move smoothly and try to make these movements complete - it looks good on the photos.

- Do not hide your hands and feet. Very often during the shooting, we do not know where to put our hands, and hide them in our pockets, but if at least some of the hand is visible, it creates a feeling that our hands are cut off. To prevent this, hands should be completely covered with clothing. In addition, it is better to abandon short boots and shoes, especially when you have bare legs - it visually cuts them. But this rule does not apply to high-heeled shoes. In addition, if you decide to take photos on the waist, then the hands are best to bend around the chest, in no case can they be lowered.

- Do not look into the lens.Of course, unless your photographer wants it. If you want your image to be seen in the picture (posture, clothing, accessories, etc.), then it is better not to look directly at the camera. Look slightly away from or above the lens. A direct look at the picture always distracts all attention, and everything else becomes less noticeable.

- Do not stretch your arms or legs towards the photographer. This violates the proportions of your body in the picture. And when you want to play with your hair, your elbows are best set apart from the direction of the camera.

- Rate the background. It must be neutral, without many details, so that you do not get lost on it. It is best that the background consists of no more than 2 colors. In addition, these colors should be in contrast with the color of your skin and clothing.

Still, the most important rule of a successful photo is your good mood. When you learn to enjoy the process of photography itself, only then the quality of your images will noticeably improve. We hope that our tips will help you become photogenic, and you will love yourself in each new photo.
