From staff photos to selfies, It’s hard to avoid having your photo taken these days. iPhones, photo sharing and social media mean that no one can hide from being seen in photos.
But you don’t need to be George Clooney or Angelina Jolie to flash your chompers and smile for the camera!
Here’s a few little tips that we think will make you more happy to pose for that selfie, or share that photo with a friend:
- El Natural
When it comes to photo time, be as natural as you can. Try not to force a smile so your face looks more relaxed.
Tucking your toung down behind your teeth and having them slightly apart will help with this.
- Practice, Practice, Practice
They say practice makes perfect, why do you think the models always look so good!
- Keep your Teeth Clean
Nobody wants to be tagged in a photo on Facebook with spinach in between their teeth!
- Smile With Your Eyes
For your smile to look authentic, it can’t be all teeth and no eyes.When you are genuinely smiling the muscles of the eyes and mouth are both pulling back. This causes natural wrinkles around the eyes, so people know your genuinely smiling!
- Your Best Angle
It’s not always possible, but when it is make sure you chose to be in the spot that you most like.Tilt your body or your head slightly so you are not completely square with the camera.
Stand up straight and you will look more happy and confident.
