Picture this: it’s the bride and groom’s big day, and you’re amongst the wedding party, awaiting the countdown to when a photo will be taken; anxiety surges throughout your veins because you know that in just a mere moment, you are about to destroy this captured moment. However, all hope is not lost; I can provide you with a how- to guide to ensure every moment captured is picture perfect—please don’t be a wedding crasher.
Almost Never Pose
I know, I know. This goes against all ethics of preparing for a photo, but hear me out. You have literal seconds before that photo is taken, and you don’t want to be contemplating a pose that most likely will come to an awkward end. Instead, consistently create movement and motion. A great go to is to rub your hands together as if you were washing them; doing so will eliminate a possible awkward disposition while creating a look that displays confidence and control.
Eyes may be the window to the soul, but sunlight is key to a window; if you want that good selfie.”
– the window
You should never leave your hands empty- handed…especially if you’re in a setting of celebratory efforts. Whether it be at a bar, a wedding, or something of the sort; always have an item in hand. This is the optimal moment to have yourself a drink, or get ready for a selfie!
Check Your Selfie
Admit it. You take selfies. And you take selfies a lot. But are you taking them at the right time? Time is of the essence, my friend; make sure you use nature’s necessities to your advantage. Natural light is always the best lighting; so either you face the window, or wander beyond the window and go outside. Are you golden? Well, check the time. The best hours to take a selfie is at sunrise or sunset.
