As a blogger, I look at pictures of myself a lot, and have picked up some specific blunders that make me cringe. In order to help you avoid the same mistakes, I wrote a guide, complete with some [deliberately] bad pictures of myself:
1. Smile Like You Mean It
2. Stand up straight
3. Stand your head up straight too. You’re not a turtle.
As you can see, my collar lines up, yet my head is massive in the first one. Sometimes when I’m being photographed I jut my head forward, like it helps the photographer find my face or something. [why].
Any more photo faux-pas to add to the list?
