Advice on how to look good in photos taken of me?

    • Thread Starter

    I'm a 19 year old guy and I am the least photogenic person I've ever met. In every photo taken of me my face seems to tense up. In general I can't pose for a photo and it is so ANNOYING.

    So what tips do you have, bare in mind it's for occasions when other people are taking the photo so I'm not in control of lighting etc. I'm thinking more in terms of having a relaxed, more photogenic looking face.

    see.. to get a good picture to be clicked, you need to give natural looks
    avoid over expressions and give natural simple smile
