I mentioned yesterday that I photographed some friends this weekend as a Christmas gift for their Mom. (Yes, it's April, but it was the only time we could get the stars to align.)
As I was photographing Lizzie (known to our family as co-nanny-extraordinaire) for her individual shots she was doing a great job but I noticed that she was tilting her entire face up toward the camera.
Now as you can see, Lizzie could look amazing in a paper bag, so this wasn't really a huge problem, but I suggested that she drop her chin just a little and just like that her photos went from good to amazing with just the tilt of a chin.
So, that's my handy and humble little photo tip of the week. Drop your chin (not too low!), lock eyes with the camera, and make your Mama happy!
