Photobooths are a great addition to any event but sometimes you can feel a little odd standing inside a booth and posing. We aren’t all models but that doesn’t mean we can’t look great on those little photos that shoot out of the machine! With a few tips, looking great at the party photobooth is easy.
Think good to look good
One of the first things you need to do is think pleasant thoughts. It may sound – and feel – a little odd, but it will result in great shots. Take hold of the joy of the party and use that happiness to give a genuine look to the camera. This will stop your pose from looking forced.
Don’t force your smile
Again, forced movements or expressions will look strange, so try to naturally fall into your smile. Take the time before going to an event to practice your smile. If your cheeks start to hurt, you are going too far. Take note of when you smile unconsciously and try to replicate this.
There are no bad sides!
Despite what many of us think, we don’t have a “bad side”. Instead, it is important to be confident and stand tall. Rather than facing the camera front on, turn at a small angle (remember, there is no bad side! So go with whatever feels natural), put one foot forward and allow yourself to settle onto the back foot.
Dress your best
How you dress and do yourself up is also important. You know better than anyone what makes you look and feel good. More than likely, before any party you will be dressing to impress, so take the event and the party’s photobooth as an opportunity to get glammed up! If you know the photo booth is in black and white, try to wear bold, contrasting colours.
