How to Be More Photogenic

You can be extremely good looking, a natural born model, but if can’t take good pictures, your exposure will be limited.  Learning how to pose properly is modeling 101.  By employing certain techniques, you can ensure your pictures will turn out perfectly and reveal the real you at the same time.

Although being photogenic sounds more like something you’re just born with, it actually takes practice.  The best way to do this is to study yourself in the mirror and snap a few selfies.  You may want to invest in a selfie stick, which will give you more range.  Pose as many ways as possible to determine your best angle.  If a friend is willing to help with some snaps, all the better.  Having someone else capture the moment will be more closely aligned with working professionally.  Try out some serious shots, some silly and some smiling.  See which suit you best.

Another way to make sure you’re putting your best foot forward is to choose outfits that flatter your face and figure.  If what you choose to wear accentuates curves in all the wrong places, it will be difficult to move with ease, and you’ll likely be focused on your dress choice rather than the poses.  Choose attire you’re comfortable in.

Looking great in pics also means understanding how to best accentuate your facial features with makeup.  Have great cheekbones?  Add a highlighter.  Known for your amazing eyes?  Play these up with darker shades and play down the rest of your palette with nudes.  If you’re not sure what your best look is, schedule an appointment with a makeup artist who will show you the ropes.  If the artist believes you should switch up your moisturizer or add a component to your skin care routine, you’ll also be given some tips to ensure you shine.

Along with makeup, understanding the best hairstyle for your face shape is also important, and you’ll want to go with a ‘do fits both your physical appearance and your personality.  It’s amazing how much a new style can boost confidence, which will be undeniable in front of the camera.  Schedule an appointment with your hairdresser and ask about best options.  You might also consider switching up your color while you’re there.

The ability to be photogenic is essential in the modeling world, and practice make perfect.  Have an idea of how to present and pose before the shoot.
