Being more photogenic doesn’t take a lot of work. It’s actually quite easy if you know the right poses. Here are a few quick tips on how to stand, smile, and pose when you’re the subject of a camera.

The first post is called Slim and Streamline, which involves the body being tilted and slightly to the side with arms bent and the weight on the back leg. The second option is to find a way to frame the person’s best physical feature, such as putting your hand close to your chin. The third trick is the Nose Magnet. Keep the nose turned toward the camera as if the two are magnetically drawn to each other. Stitching involves switching back and forth between two poses and varying each one throughout the photo shoot. This avoids holding a pose for too long, which makes you begin to look fake. Of course, one of the simplest ways to look better is to be a part of a group shot, especially one that is tightly packed and doesn’t allow for any gaps.
