Selfie Everyone wants to look good in their photos. Some of us are naturally more photogenic than others, but that doesn't mean we can't all look amazing. Here are 7 quick tips to help you look your best in a photo.

  1. Jaw out. Extend your neck and jaw towards the camera, then slightly tuck your jaw down. 
  2. Don't smile too hard. When you smile big and hard your eyes become slits. Relax your smile and your eyes will relax too.
  3. Create a slight "C" shape to your body. This can be a simple as bending at the waist slightly. Oh, and place your arms slightly away from your body. This will give you a slimmer appearance.
  4. Take selfies. Taking selfies is a great way to figure out your own best angles.
  5. Make a fist, then relax and place your hand naturally. This helps soften the appearance of your hands.
  6. Women - put your hands on your waist, not your hips. This gives the illusion of a smaller waist.
  7. Think good thoughts, think happy thoughts. Your facial expression will reflect your thoughts.

The photo to the right is a selfie of me. It took some time and effort to figure out how I would look best in a photo. After about 20 tries I finally got a photo I could live with. Knowing how to position yourself in a photo is key. Of course, a good photographer will position you and give you lots of tips so you look your best.
