Have Photographer or Person Take Photo From Low Angle

This will make you look taller!
If you want to look slimmer through the face, have the photographer shoot from a higher vantage point and down at you.

Play With Sunlight

Shooting into the Sun

Shooting into the light can sometimes creates magic, even a sunflare!
MOST of the time, you should shoot with the sun at your back, Or the sun in the model’s face.
If it’s the middle of the day, find shade. The best times to shoot, for the most flattering lighting, are sunrise and sunset.

You can also try using the sun as a hair light and place yourself/friend …so just the back of their head is lit up by the sun.

Movement

Move your Body

Some of my all-time favorite pictures are ones where I’m walking, jumping, twirling, etc.
Don’t be afraid to move your body (if the photographer knows how to adjust the camera settings).

Even rocking back and forth, with one foot in front of the other, can do the trick!

Remember Hand Placement

Don’t Forget About Your Hands

It’s easy to forget about your hands…
Try to find something natural and deliberate for them to do.
Put them in your pockets like the picture (above), on your bag, holding your lapel, touching your hair, etc.

Lighting is EVERYTHING

When in Doubt, Stand in Front of a Window

The best light is often natural light. Just stand facing the window and take your shot.
Or set your camera up in the window, facing indoors.

  1. You’re amazing!! I HATE getting headshots, I always feel like its several hundred dollars down the drain ’cause I like my own selfies better!! (for pose and expression, etc) but lighting and all that isn’t great… I wish photographers knew these things!! This was really really helpful! Can you come take my pics? 🙂

    1. I would LOVE to take your pictures, Cathy!! I really DO love to take pictures. Whenever I’m at a blogger conference, my blogger buds always ask me to snap the pics. Thanks for your sweet note.
      I don’t really need headshots anymore, more casual lifestyle shots, and I always take my own. Add a fan for some wind blown hair!! That’s what I did here: http://busbeestyle.com/2017/06/13/beauty-tips-green-eyeshadow/ You should have seen THAT setup!! 😉 Erin xo
