Alright, Matt here, your go-to Shropshire photographer with some golden nuggets on how to always look fantastic in photos. Whether it's for your wedding, a family shoot, or just capturing candid moments, these tips will have you looking your absolute best. Let's get cracking!


1. Find Your Best Angle

We all have that one side that makes us look like a million bucks. Spend some time in front of the mirror or snap a few selfies to figure out your most flattering angle. Once you've got it, work it!


2. Use Good Posture

Stand tall, shoulders back. Good posture not only makes you look confident but also helps you appear more natural and relaxed in photos. No slouching allowed!


3. Wear Well-Fitting Clothes

Baggy or too-tight clothes are a no-go. Opt for outfits that fit well and allow you to move comfortably. This way, you’ll look sharp and feel great, which shows in your photos.


4. Use Makeup Wisely

A little makeup can work wonders. Even out your skin tone with some foundation, add a touch of blush, and a bit of lipstick for that natural, healthy glow. You don’t need much, just enough to enhance your features.


5. Relax and Be Yourself

The camera loves confidence. If you’re feeling jittery, take a deep breath and remind yourself that you look awesome. Relaxing helps your true personality shine through, making for the best photos.


6. Embrace Natural Light

Natural light is your best friend. Aim for outdoor shots or position yourself near a window when indoors. If natural light isn’t an option, use a diffused light source to avoid harsh shadows.


7. Experiment with Expressions

Don’t be afraid to try different expressions. Smile, laugh, or even pull a silly face. You never know which expression will turn out to be your best shot. Plus, it's fun!


8. Choose the Right Lens

If you’re the one behind the camera, make sure you're using the right lens. A wide-angle lens can make everything appear further away, while a telephoto lens brings everything closer. Pick the one that suits your shot best.


By following these tips, you'll be ready to rock any photo session. Remember, it’s all about having fun and finding the poses and expressions that make you feel confident and comfortable.
