How To Look Good In Pictures

Think ANGLES. Go through your favorite pictures of yourself and look for patterns. Do you like the way you look from a certain angle?

Facing the camera straight on is rarely flattering; instead, turn your head to a 3/4 position to give your features depth.

Mirror Mirror! When you smile a specific way? Practice that smile whenever you find yourself looking in a mirror! (practice a few poses while you're at it!)

Think CONFIDENCE. Be proud of yourself - if you think you're ugly, you'll convey that to the camera. If you have concerns about your teeth, smile with a closed mouth. Remember, the key to a bad photo is being nervous and thinking it will be bad...

Keep your best poses in mind the next time you have your photo taken. Is there someone you admire who always looks great in pictures? Think of/be that person while the camera is looking at you!

Remember, above all, photography is a game of averages - a crapshoot. The more pictures snapped of you in sequence, the easier it will be to find at least one that passes self-muster.

And then there is your secret weapon - PHOTOSHOP - don't be afraid to use it!

Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
