TTT: Posing for pictures on your next vacay

This Travel Tip Tuesday marks my 300th post, so I want to make it special.  One of the most important things to me is looking my best in your travel pics.  I’ve read lots of articles and blog posts online, and here are a few tips that I like:

  1. Know thyself!  Know how to smile the right amount or what your best funny face is.  Know if you have a good side (yeah, some people do).
  2. Avoid facing the camera straight on (unless you know for a fact you look better that way, but that’s pretty darned rare).  This trick is usually slimming.  Don’t angle yourself too much; you don’t want to make your neck all wrinkled.
  3. Don’t hold your breath – you might look weird.
  4. Hold in your stomach – don’t suck it in, just flex it.
  5. Use good posture.
  6. Make sure both arms aren’t straight.  Also, make sure you don’t smash your biceps against your body.  These tricks are also good for legs, especially when sitting.
  7. Rest most of your weight on one foot.  It’s slimming.
  8. Don’t tuck your chin in and give yourself an extra chin.
  9. Ask the photographer to take multiple shots.  Then you have a better chance at getting one you like.
  10. Try to be as comfortable as possible.

    These are such great tips! I’m going to remind myself to use them for photo shoots.
