It’s all about the light

Finding the best light is the first step to a great picture. And by light we mean natural sunlight!

Elongate your torso

A plunging neckline or a V-neck t-shirt or dress immediately elongates your torso. You could enhance your photo by going for big earrings or necklaces that strike out an amazing contrast with your clothes but make sure your jewellery isn’t so jarring that it draws attention away from your picture.
