A few months ago, I found this video created by photographer Peter Hurley. In it, he explains and demonstrates an effective and genius tip for looking lean in photos. I’ve been using this tip – with much success – ever since, so I wanted to share with you.
Say sayonara to your dreaded double chin (well, in photos at least) by stretching your neck and bringing your forehead forward and down slightly. This accentuates your jawline and takes away those pesky ten pounds that the camera adds. It feels a bit awkward, but I swear it works.
The video is on the long side, but it’s definitely worth a watch. Just fast forward to 8:50 for some amazing before-and-afters, and tell me this guy doesn’t know what he’s talking about.
Try this technique in the mirror or snap some photos of yourself on your phone – I swear you’ll see a difference. If it works for you, I’d love for you to share in the comments.
