Photobooth Photos – How To Use Your Body To Have Great Shots

It’s the time of the year when we attend parties and here and there. And what’s the one thing parties never go without these days? Photobooths, yes. If we can just get the nicest photos to have as souvenirs.

The problem with photobooths is that you run out of ideas on how to pose and so you just end up depending on the props. The bad thing is when even these props couldn’t work for you. The solution? Use the best thing you have, you!

Here are some tips on how you can behave and use your body to have souvenir worthy photobooth photos!

Hair – Curl it, perm it, color it, flick it, whatever you want to do, just make sure that you do something about your hair. If you aren’t making a statement from being bald, then make good use of your hair by fixing it before you go in front of the camera. It’s your crowning glory so make sure that it really is something worth looking at in the first glance.

Body – Position your body sideways to give some angle. You will also avoid those shots where your fats look like they are being squished flat out.
