I dread having photos taken of me. I know that might sound crazy since I take about a thousand photos per month – of everyone else! I usually freeze with a strained smile, and then my lips do weird things. Then I become super self conscious about my lips, and then people ask what’s wrong with my lips! So then my face gets distorted as I try to make my lips look normal. Oh the vicious cycle.
That’s why I was so intrigued when I read this article “10 Easy Steps to Looking More Photogenic.” I like tips that I can consciously do so I don’t fret about things I can’t control (like my face!). I like Tip #7 the best: Close your eyes, take a deep breath, open your eyes, and smile!
So if you don’t think you can take a good photo, try reading these 10 tips!
After 10 years, I finally replaced my last profile photo that I’ve used for business and social media. Maybe I won’t wait another 10 years to post a new photo!
