How to Make sure you “Look Thinner in Photos”

Secret No. 1: Turn partially sideways to the camera, not full frontal, or 90 degrees to the camera.  Cross your legs a little, planting one foot in front of the other. It makes your thighs and hips visually slender, also this pose is very elegant. Point your toe to the camera and place your weight on your back foot. Twisting your body / legs slightly pulls the skin tighter and makes you appear slimmer.

Secret No. 2: Don’t pull your head back, as this makes your chin squish out. Stretch your head away instead, if you worry about double chin. Hold your head forward and bend it downwards a little bit. This way your face will cover the lower part of the chin! This works the other way around as well: if you pull you head in much, a double chin will appear larger.

Secret No. 3: Hold arms slightly away from your body. This keeps upper arm flab from flattening out and therefore appearing flabbier (much like thighs do when one sits on a couch). Place your hands on your waist or your hips.

Secret No. 4: Stand up straight, pull shoulders back, chest forward and gently suck stomach in. Be careful not to suck stomach so far in that your ribs show, which makes it look obvious that you’re “sucking in”

Secret No. 5: Remember that the body part closest to a camera will seem to be larger than others. Try a classic trick: Marilyn Monroe used to cross her arms on chest and slightly bend down to photographers to highlight her bust, but not other parts of her body. If your belly or backside will be closest to a camera, they will get the main attention and will appear to be bigger then they actually are. Try to take camera’s attention to body parts that you feel confident about and no one will notice the things that you would rather hide away.

Secret No. 6: It’s not just black that makes you look thinner. Wearing an entire outfit of just one colour will do the trick as well, whether it be white, beige, brown, blue or red. One colour tends to elongate your figure. Avoid horizontal stripes at all costs.

How to Look Slimmer in your Holiday Snaps

Use short lighting. Short (or narrow) lighting is when your subject’s face is turned away from the camera, and the lighting is such that the lit side of the face is facing away from you. If you were to use broad lighting, the side closer to you would be lit, and it would make the face look larger.

Use a high lighting ratio. This goes along with the short lighting tip. Keeping your fill light dialed down means that your subject will stay more in shadow on the side opposite the key light. If part of the body is more in shadow, your eyes will tell your brain the person is thinner when you look at the photo.

Use the right lens. Be very careful with those wide angle lenses. They can be fun sometimes, but can really pack on the pounds. For best results, use a middle of the road focal length like 55 mm.

Get up high. Elevate your position just a little bit. Try standing on a chair when you take the picture. Your subject will need to look up at you slightly, and in doing so will be stretching out the extra chin a bit, making it disappear behind the real chin. If done right, you usually can’t even tell you’re up high in the final photo. Whatever you do, don’t take any photos from down low when you have a larger subject!

Crop out the bad stuff. Before you press the shutter, simply take a second to take note of your subject’s shape. If you have someone who is rather heavy down below, keep the majority of your shots up high to keep the bad stuff out of the frame.

Slim the hands. While this may seem like a small detail, making the hands look smaller can have a real impact. Angle your subject’s hands so that you’re seeing the edges of them, not the palms or backs. This will add to the overall feel of “thinner.
