Before delving deeper into the know-how of posing, let us discuss some basic rules. Having your photos clicked or clicking your photos can be challenging if you aren’t photogenic. But that can always be changed.

1. Determine why you do not look good in photos
Try to find out the correct lighting and angle for your face and body. Changing the two can work wonders.
2. Practice in front of a mirror before posing for the camera
If you’re sure that you won’t be able to ace a striking pose on the D-day, then practice in front of a mirror. It might help you find an angle that suits you.
3. Flatter your body-type with the right outfit
It’s power dressing. Let yourself shine through your outfit. Do not wear unflattering patterns if you want the outcome to be in your favour.
Smiling is easy, we do that every day; from forced smiling to laughing our heart out. But you want your photos to appear natural, not the Nun from Conjuring striking trying to smile. Smile through your eyes.
The ‘this is a semi-candid picture of me’ Pose
Find your good side and pose away!
The “I’m gonna kill you with my gorgeous eyes” Pose
If your face is symmetric and you have sharp features then looking straight into the camera can do wonders.
If you’re too worried about your slight cock-eye then wearing sunglasses might help.
Point your head straight towards the camera and close your eyes, keeping it slightly open. This pose would radiate calm confidence.
