For the love of social media, everyone looks so perfect, having the best time without a hair out of place. It can be an intimidating place to venture into. Snapping a few pics and posting seems so easy until you’re standing there, unsure of what to do. It feels like test anxiety and you’re staring at the page in front of you.
The hardest part of taking photos is not knowing what to do with my hands and arms. Too often I realize that my arm completely disappears. Now that you see it, you can’t “unsee” it, right? Props are of little help and I don’t have enough purses or handbags! It’s either dresses or purses and dresses win every time. My standard go to is my hand in my hair or on my hip. I don’t even realize I’m doing it until I go through photo after photo. Or nailing that pose, but my face…. are my eyes closed? Did I always have man hands? Or my face is fine, smile is great and staring into the lens but that whack pose!
There are worse things, but please tell me I’m not the only one who struggles with this. I’m literally up in arms. What are your tips for the hands and arms? I would love to hear them!
Happy Hump day and thanks so much for stopping by!
