Have you ever seen a photo of yourself and thought it was less than flattering? Although we can all be harder on ourselves than other people are, you can still feel and look confident no matter what situation you find yourself in. Many of these tips can also be applied to webcams in addition to photos, which is especially applicable during the coronavirus pandemic.
SIT OR STAND UP STRAIGHT
If you want to look slimmer in photos or on video, working on your posture is an easier way to do it. Whether sitting or standing, lift and roll your shoulders back to open your ribcage. If you’re standing, make sure to keep a neutral spine without sticking your hips or butt out. Not only will this position instantly make you look slimmer, but it also protects your stomach organs and allows you to take in more oxygen.
HAND ON HIP
The next time you’re in a photo, resist the urge to let your arms droop by your side. Try putting one hand on your hip or keeping your arms angled away from your body. By creating angles with your arms, you draw less attention to them, and you can trick the camera into making them look slimmer.
ANGLE YOUR BODY
For standing photos, it’s tempting to face directly toward the camera. A simple way to trick the camera into making you look slimmer is by creating angles with your body. You can do this in a few different ways. First, if you do want to face forward, slightly lean your hips back, with gives the impression of longer, leaner legs. Otherwise, angle your body to the side for a slim profile. You can also lean slightly away from the camera for a more flattering angle. Remember to keep your shoulders back!
During today’s Zoom meeting or in your next selfie, lift your chin up and slightly out. This pose elongates your neck which helps you look slimmer. You can also suck your tongue in during a video call, which instantly draws in the skin underneath the chin for a tighter appearance.
