So I decided to do some checking on line and discovered that it wasn’t me at all. It was the photographer. My friends are not good photographers and they don’t know how to use lighting to give the best effect. To be fair I probably don’t take the best pictures of them either.
Lighting is very important in taking pictures. Light can cast shadows to contour and make curves that flatter and hide unwanted areas or it can accentuate them. It can also smooth out lines and wrinkles on the face or it can make a face look like a street map.
So the next time you see an unflattering picture of yourself just know you look fabulous and it must be the bad lighting or photographer.
