Let's start with the pictures on top. On the left is my frumpy stance. Okay, there is my super cute dog in the background, but what about me? 1st - my feet are about shoulder width apart. Which, even with my killer skirt makes my lower half look very blocky. I try to keep this in mind even while walking, thus I tend to try and walk with my knees close together and my ankles brushing. 2nd - My arms at straight down at my waist. This makes my shoulders look extra blocky as well. 3rd - My shoulders are slumped. Well slouching looks good on no one! It makes my shoulders look extra big and makes me look less confident. 4th - lastly, my chin is down. This makes my neck look extra thick and also makes me look less confident.
With the picture on the right I am doing a couple of things that maybe you don't notice. One of them is I am leaning back a little bit. This really pulls my shoulders back and decreases their appearance. So many people think that by slouching people will not notice how big their shoulders are when exactly the opposite is true! The other thing I am doing in this photo is that I am slightly angled to the camera. This provides for a more slimming profile.
The photo on my right, notice that I am very angled to the camera. It so emphasizes my skinny!
Cameras are great, but they also severely suck! They are not interested in automatically capturing our best sides and making us look great! They take a snapshot of whatever we are presenting. And often, it does not look as good as it could.
With just simple things like, putting your feet together, bending a leg a little, putting your hands on your hips, twisting your torso a little, putting your shoulders back, lifting your chin up, those little things will go a long way to making you look your absolute best!
Take pictures of yourself!
Be proud of who you are!
Love you again!
