6 Secrets To Make You Look Beautiful In Photos

So you want to look great in your photos, but after years of taking grim, mug-shot passport photos, you’ve forgotten how to smile. Fear not! Ohio-based photographer Jodee Ball recommends these six tips to transform your photos from police-station photo-lineups into stylish, magazine covers.

First, strike a carefree pose. Shake that guilt out of your shoulders! Second, turn your body three quarters away from the camera; this will make you harder to identify if you are in a police-lineup. Third, lower-yours hands. You’re not being held-up, after all. Fourth, lower your shoulders and fifth, bend your knee. Finally, tilt your head slightly, and voila, you’re a model!

There should be the same facial expression on both photos to really show the difference

"..after years of taking grim, mug-shot passport photos, you’ve forgotten how to smile.." of course facial expression is involved

To be honest, especially the last one, it looked better without the tilted head. It depends a lot in the persons figure/face how to pose. And also how you place the light/flash. As well as what mood you want in the picture. But I think a lot of the poses are stanard stock-photo poses. On the last picture, tilting her head makes her nose look bigger. But that could be fixed with a different angle from the flash/light.
