LEFT: Phone was held below chin and shooting upwards. Don't do this. Creates the illusion of a double chin, shows shadows, fine lines, and imperfections.
MIDDLE: Phone was held straight on to face. Looks ok, but there's a better option
RIGHT: Phone was held just slightly higher than my eyeline. It opens the eyes more, defines the jawline, and lights the face better.
I hope this is helpful!
Go practice this! Take a shot below, straight on, and then above to compare.
You will be amazed!
P.S. - no filters or photoshop used. Keepin' it real ya'll. Shot in a bathroom. 😊
