Everyone wants to look thinner. To look thinner in pictures, pose in such a way that the camera can see the space between your upper body and arms. You can also twist your body to look thinner.
12. Never Show Whites
It makes you look a little foolish if you show most of your whites of your eyes in your picture. Try to pose in such a way that you show most of the black parts.
13. Watch Out Your Nose
Never let your nose destroy the picture. Never pose in a way that your nose exceeds your face area. It destroys the natural curve of the face.
