Yesterday I told you about our new e-book: How to Look 10 Pounds Thinner and 20 Years Younger in Every Photo You Take.  And I said the tips inside are so good, I’ve pulled three of them out for this week’s newsletter to run as a special How-to-Look-Good-in-Photographs series. Today is the first of that series. Scroll down below to find out how to eliminate a double chin, either in yourself (if you have one) or in your model if you’re photographing someone else… Enjoy! — Lori Lori Allen Director, Great Escape Publishing   Here’s today’s photo tip… HOW TO LOOK 10 LBS THINNER IN 5 MINUTES OR LESS TIP #1 — How To Eliminate A Double Chin Eliminating double chins or excess skin under the chin is simple. When you’re the photographer, all you have to do is raise the camera – get up higher so you see less of your subject’s neck. When you’re the model, you have two options: 1) Tilt your chin upward and lean forward.  This will stretch the skin under the chin. 2) Position yourself (or your model) with one shoulder away from the camera, while turning the head to look back at the camera.  This will slim down body mass.  It’ll also flex muscles in the neck, making it appear more slim and youthful. In this first image, the model’s shoulders are turned slightly away, but you can still see excess skin under the chin: Whereas in this image, the model’s body is turned to a full profile while he looks back at the camera, eliminating the double chin altogether: You should experiment by shooting from different sides, above and below, with the model’s body turned slightly away or at a full profile.  That way, you can get a feel for your model’s best angles and focus on those throughout the shoot. This is just one of the secrets in our new book, How to Look 10 Pounds Thinner and 20 Years Younger in Every Photo You Take. For great portraits, you should also know: ** How to use angles and turns like this to make your whole body look slimmer… ** How to eliminate flabby arms… ** How to erase blemishes and wrinkles in Photoshop… ** How to give your photo a professional quality in Lightroom… ** How to lighten your subject’s teeth in Photoshop ** What to wear – certain colors and certain cuts of clothes are more flattering than others.
