A recent study found that three quarters of women avoided having their photo taken because they hate how they look in the resulting picture. It seems that almost half of us hate how we look in pictures with the majority sighting their smile as the main issue. Facebook hasn’t helped with this fear as a lot of us fear the catty remarks that people may make if the picture is posted on the site.
Thankfully renowned photographer Nick Daly who is currently shooting the Nivea Million Moments of Closeness campaign has come to our rescue with four top tips on how to look your best for those Kodak moments.
1. Be extroverted
You won’t look silly; people love pictures where people are having fun and are happy. Standing with a straight face just looks dull.
