Adorable and Skinny!Oooh...do I have a treat for you guys!!!
Want some great holiday photos of the kiddos?
Ever wish you knew how to trick the camera into making you look thinner?
I asked writer/photographer Rachel Schieffellbein to stop by and give us some tips.
Take it away Rachel!
First off, I want to thank Elizabeth for having me on her blog today! I’m super excited to be here.
I know a lot of writers have other artistic endeavors they enjoy. For me it’s photography, because, unlike writing, it’s basically instant gratification. And when I’m writing, or revising, or waiting forever for emails, I need a little instant gratification!
Elizabeth wanted me to share some photography tips for the upcoming holiday season.
One: Get down to their level. Kneel, sit, lay down on the floor, whatever you have to do to get the angle you want.
Two: Get up close and personal. They have such perfect little faces, make them the center of attention.
Three: Get them in action. When they’re ripping open those presents, or dancing around in their pjs, take lots of photos! That’s one nice thing about digital, you can just delete the ones that don’t work out anyway.
Second question! How to appear thinner in photos....
One thing that I think helps is to push your hair back. I know that sounds weird, but often times women with long hair have it hanging in front of them and it hides their neck, making them look rounder.
Also, stretch out that neck, and pull your shoulders back! Posture helps.
PicMonkey. It’s a free photo editing site online. It’s easy and fun to use. Just don’t go crazy with all the different effects! Keep it simple. :)
Have a great holiday everyone!
Rachel is a writer, photographer, cover designer, and all-round sweetheart.
