Don’t just stand there and smile, move and make faces!
I think it’s safe to say that we all love getting our photos taken, whether it’s something we really like doing or just a spur-of-the-moment thing. But unless it’s a photo for a government-issued document and the like, what sort of poses and facial expressions do you usually do? Do you stand straight as a pole or like a teapot with one hand on the hip? Jump shots? Do a V-sign with your fingers? Pout? Or simply flash either a tight-lipped smile or a toothy grin?
Simply put, there are a lot of poses and expressions that you can do when you get your portraits taken! One camera that you can use is the Diana Mini, which takes dreamy photos in either square or Half-Frame format. Your creative or funny pose will definitely look even more awesome on print when you utilize the Diana Mini’s Multiple and Long Exposure features!
