Try these photo tips next time you are shooting or being shot with a camera.
Bright sunlight of midday is generally too harsh for anyone's good and can mean washed-out photos. If you're being shot in the early afternoon, look for a shady spot to provide greater contrast. Have your picture taken at dusk, if it's at all up to you. There's good reason that photographers call it the magic hour--pretty much everyone ends up looking hot.
In a perfect world, no one would ever have to be photographed by someone who's shorter than they are. Try to tuck your chin down slightly, but not so far down so that it looks like you're doing a yoga stretch. This will minimize any jowliness and emphasize your sexy eyes instead.
Pose like a pro: Don't stand with hips and shoulders square to the camera. It makes women look their widest. Stand so that your side is to the camera, and turn your upper body back toward the lens. Then put your weight on your back foot, and point your front foot forward. This will make your hips and tummy appear slimmer.
Cats, on the other hand, don't worry about things like this when they get photographed. They sit and look regal.
