Remember when you were out and about with your pals at fundraisers having photos taken and doing selfies? Sure, you do. Some shots made you look terrific and others had you looking like you were in a police lineup. Why not take some time off from being a social-distancing Spartan and have some fun by brushing up on your photogenic skills? Did you know the perfect spot to be in when being photographed in a group? Did you know how to strike that perfect pose? Do you know what to do with your arms? Did you know that you can hit a certain stance that will make you look svelte? Did you know that “cheerleader toothy smile” isn’t always the right choice?
There are loads of videos providing hints on how to achieve the perfect look, but here are some tips from Houston’s KPRC anchor Dominique Sachse that hit the mark best.
The great thing is that you can stay at home without a soul knowing that you’re practicing for your coming out partying; you can do it with the rest of the folks hunkered down in your place; you can share the great shots; you can do it without wearing a mask; you can do it without gaining an ounce of weight. And when you have those too-good-to-be-true shots, send them to family and friends to show that you’re not going to let a nasty germ get the best of you.
And, who knows? You might have your Christmas photo already locked down!
So, check out Dominique’s tips and pull out that cellphone. Remember, practice makes perfect photos.
