Tip: Getting the natural smile in your photos

May 26, 2006 | 0 Minute Read

first tip on the blog and its from Lifehacker.com telling you how to get natural smiles on your photos:

…count down 3-2-1-Cheese!, take one shot, and then take another shot immediately after. The smile in the first picture will often look stilted and posed, but there is usually a moment a split-second later when the model will relax and his smile will look much more natural.

there is a second sub tip there too:

Usually I go with the “make dumb jokes until subject doesn’t realize you’ve taken 17 photos” approach which often nets out at least one good one, but that’s just me.

Handy stuff. stay tuned for more!
