3. Cross your legs, hold in your stomach, straighten your back and place your hands on your waist for a very flattering shot.


4. When lying on a deck chair, try to simply rest on your elbow rather than spread all of your body weight on it. Also, keep your knees together.


5. If you’re taking a photograph in profile, be careful not to stoop.


6. Do not stoop when you’re taking a shot sitting down either. In fact, avoid stooping even when you’re not taking a photograph!
