How To Get More Natural Smiles On Photos?

The best feeling you can have is happiness and smile is the best thing you can wear. But sometimes it’s hard to make a natural smile while taking a photo or to get people smile in a photo for you. Therefore if you are tired of pictures with smiles that just look fake, here are some of our tips on how to make that big smile be more natural.

  • Weather you’re taking a photo of someone or you’re trying to smile for someone, the first thing you need to do is not to tense up and to relax. Take a couple of really deep, deep breaths and this will automatically relax your entire body. Be conscious about not stiffening your cheeks and remember that natural smile comes from relaxed face.

  • Tell your subject to lift the tip of their tongue up behind their front teeth – this will help lips position in the more natural smiling position. Also encourage your subjects by complimenting them they look good in the picture and that they are doing a great job.

When people see you smiling, they smile too!

  • The good thing about smiling is that is when people see you smiling, they usually smile too – it’s an unconscious reaction, so try smiling for your subject or smile at the photographer directly to get some happy feeling flowing.

Get some happy feeling flowing

  • Try to recreate how the smile feels like – not what it looks like and you will make more natural face. To do so you will need to feel certain emotion so think about what made you happy today.
  • You can also lough while the photo is being taken or tell your subject to chuckle a little. If you need some help, try thinking about something funny that happened in the past couple of days.

Recreate how the smile feels like – not what it looks like

  • Chat before taking a photo – this will make you and people around you feel at ease.
  • Think happy thoughts: ask children to sing you a cheerful song or to talk about their favorite toy. You can do the same with adults and ask them about their children or their happiest moments in life.

  • Suggest funny poses like superhero pose: jumping or standing on one leg or even chicken dance – people will quickly loosen up and smile naturally (not to mention that photos will be hilarious).

Ask children to make their silliest face

  • Ask children to make their silliest face or ask permission to make your silliest face – this will surely loosen up the atmosphere. Try alternating expressions and make angry face, sad face, surprised face, sticking tongues out – changing faces will lead up to smiling face in the end.
  • If you’re still having problems with fake smile, tell a joke or funny story or ask your subjects to tell jokes.

Make monkey sounds or monkey face

  • If you’re taking a couples photo, kiss your partner or ask them kiss each other – this guarantees you beautiful emotion and natural smiles.
  • Ask children and even adults to imitate animals or animal sounds (monkey, elephant or fox) this will get them into more unconventional mood and make them smile.
  • Suggest a tickling fight between your subjects and see who can hold on longer without smiling.

How To Make A Great Selfie?

Everybody’s doing it: from regular people and film stars to TV presenters and even politicians – everyone likes to see a nice picture of themselves! But taking a great selfie is not that easy, and there are a few things you should know when creating a perfect selfie picture. That’s why we gathered a couple of rules you need to follow to make a great selfie of yourself – and added some funny selfie photos to make this post even more fun!

How To Make A Great Selfie?

Good angle is crucial!

Before you take a selfie, turn on the camera and check your best angle; you can even take a few photos and look at the pictures to decide (is it your left side or maybe your profile etc). The good idea is to keep your camera a bit higher as from above your face looks slimmer and from a lower angle you may get a double chin. Additionally focus the camera on your face and tilt your head not to make your neck look too thick.

From above your face looks slimmer

Show off!

Take a selfie of your new haircut, new necklace or even your travel destination – something that will make people leave comments underneath. Make sure to highlight what is new in your photo or make a game out of it and let people guess. Of course, this shouldn’t look too forced so don’t show off with every new thing you get or see.

Highlight what is new in your photo

Expression, expression, expression!

Smile is always a good idea, but you can also try surprised look or looking the other way. Of course, the more natural your look is, the better the photo will be. Furthermore, remember to keep your arm further away because close up selfies just don’t look that great.

Good lighting is the key

You surely don’t want to look like you haven’t slept all night and emphasize that dark circles under your eyes. So find a good lighting (close to windows perhaps) or go outside as natural light is the best solution. However, if you have to use night lighting, try taking a few shots from different angles before you get the best result. If you don’t catch perfect light during sunset or sunrise, hold a white paper under your chin that will make wonders for lighting up your face.

Quality

Use the back camera of your phone as it takes high-resolution photos unlike the front one. You should also try practicing using both hands to take selfies so you can become a true selfie master.

Background should be clear

Before you take a photo check what is in your background and remember that nature makes the best background as it allows the viewer to see where are you at the given moment. If you are not near the ocean or skydiving, stick to a simple background (and beware of photo-bombers).

Stick to simple background

 Filter it up!

Experiment with different filters and do not repeatedly use just one! Different colors can give you a completely new perspective on what maybe at first seemed like a usual photo.

Be yourself

Once you know your best feature, try to look as natural as you can (so no duck-lip-face please). Relax and don’t overthink it – just snap and your look will be more natural. For perfect unforced smile you can practice in front of the mirror or call up your dear friends and take a picture with them.

Relax and don’t overthink it

Once you get the hang of making a perfect selfie, consider making a canvas photo and putting it on your wall – it will definitely be the best picture you have took and it can be a great conversation starter when you have guests over.

How To Propose – 6 Photo Ideas

Now that you have found the right person for you, it is time for the tough part – thinking about how to propose. Try to plan with as much details as possible and you can start of by deciding when are you going to propose. And we know, it’s never perfect time but it is important to plan ahead so you can stay calm. So try not to be nervous (if you possibly can) and think of some meaningful date for both of you. Also consider the weather – if it’s been raining for a few days, don’t be impatient and wait until sun shines again (unless you both like rain, which is fine). After that, decide where you want to propose as the atmosphere on the given day will be remembered. What’s your special place or her favorite restaurant? Would you like your proposal to be private or done in public?

Once the timing is right and atmosphere is set, the most important question remains: how to do it? And as you are probably still struggling what would be the best idea, let us help you out with a few examples – it is a big deal after all!

3. Surf boards proposal

Classic proposal idea is to propose your loved one over a dinner, but we have a better idea. If you don’t like the public, you can do it in the privacy of your own home. Wake up, say you got her a new mug and then drink your morning cup of coffee together. And she better be thirsty because the bottom hides a special message for her! Meanwhile, pretend that you dropped something and kneel down to find it. In this way, when she moves her surprising look from the cup, you can hold that engagement ring you dropped a second ago.
