Are you one of those who are camera shy or fall back on making funny faces when it comes to posing for the camera? If you really want to take your Instagram game up a notch or even nail some professional photographs, you know that self-conscious camera selfies or awkward poses aren't going to cut it. But don't make the mistake of letting anyone tell you that you're not photogenic. Looking good in photographs is an art that's easy to learn -- if you know a few tricks, that is. We have the low-down on all you need to know to embark on a journey to photogenic perfection.


Do your homework

Pro tip:

If you don't know what to do with your hands, the best thing to do is to keep yourself busy. Think cool walking shots, or even use fun props, which will do the trick.


Channel your inner rock star

Pro tip:

If you're finding it difficult to feel confident, then think about something that makes you happy. It will automatically translate to your expression.


Chase the light

Pro tip:

Opt for soft, natural, diffused lighting wherever possible. 


Release the tension

Pro tip:

Tip down your chin to get a more flattering angle.


Change up your expressions

For a full body shot, the best angle is from below and shooting upwards, while standing straight-on works beautifully for a portrait shot.
