Handy Tips To Look Good In The Wedding Photographs
Finally, the day (your wedding) is around the corner that you have been waiting for. By now, you must be all prepared with your outfits, makeup, jewellery and all other essential things. But what about the photographer? Hope that has not skipped from your mind. And what about the photography theme and the poses that you would like to strike on the D-Day? Read this blog, if it’s not decided yet.
It’s okay if you pose
Slightly lifting the lehenga and walking or casually adjusting the nose ring are some of the mandatory wedding poses. It’s absolutely fine if you offer any of them to the camera or come up with something else on your own. Whatever you do and whichever pose you strike, make sure it brings out your girl-turn-bride charm. You can even look for some quirky poses on the internet and show (if you happen to like any) to your appointed photographer for giving him a clear idea of what exactly you want.
Lift your chin & tilt your neck:
You must have heard many photographers instructing you, lift your chin slightly up and tilt your neck a bit to the left. This is because the raised chin gives an illusion of having a longer neck and tilt neck creates an angle on the face that looks million times better on the lens than having a straight face on.
Pose as if it is perfect
No matter how slim and fit you are, when you sit in your lehenga with a short blouse, the fat around your waist seems to bulge out. You can cover it up by placing your dupatta strategically like displaying the beauty of its zari work, or, sit angular so that your tummy is not visible.
Don’t let your sherwani go against you while posing for a click
An unpleasant photograph is when a groom sits straight in front of the camera and the photographer ends at taking a shot having a direct view to the pyjami and ummm the crotch area. Avoid this by draping the stole strategically or requesting the shutterbug to take a photo from an angular view. Sitting a leg crossed can also save you from having an embarrassing photograph.
Keep your arms away from body while being shot
I am sure you do not want your arms to look fatter in the photographs than they usually are. So, keep them away from your body while being shot, especially if the photographer is clicking from an angle. Noticed how celebrities pose? Hands on their hips! If not so dramatic, at least keep one hand on your hip and the other on the side. You can also try some other pose as shown above. Something quirky, something that’s you!
Take care of your shoulder
It is common to have the shoulders scrunched up due to heavy dupatta or saree and more than the necessary jewellery. Still, make sure that your shoulders are upright and relaxed, at least while your pictures are taken.
