Here's what not to do:
...are you entering a small doorway?
......C'mon Cristiano. No one eats grapes like that.
....Seriously, it's not necessary.
Don't fret, guys. We know some of you are guilty of doing a few or all of the above-mentioned poses. But now, it's time to the right way to pose in photos.
Tip #1: Breathe. Taking a deep breath and letting it out relaxes the muscles in your face and body. As you exhale, have your friend snap the photo.
Stand with your feet slightly apart (one forward and the other back is the best). Then, angle your body to the camera. Face can be slightly tilted. Or, if you're a pro, walk towards or across the view of the camera. As an added benefit of creating angles? You'll look slimmer.
Tip #3: Keep yourself occupied. Photos do more than capture your mug, they capture a moment in time. While your getting your photo taken, have a lighthearted conversation with your photographer. A laugh or a smile will seem more genuine on camera when you actually mean it! Not a conversationalist? Do something with your hands. Button your top jacket. Put one hand in your pocket. If you put both hands in your pocket, stand at an angle.
