The Simple Photographer


If I've told you once, I've told you a thousand times.

When having your picture taken, turn your body slightly (SLIGHTLY) away from the camera!

This slims your profile, and who among us can't use a little slimming. A new friend that I met the other day agreed to pose and illustrate this important photography tip.

Meet Larry the Longhorn. He's pretty wide (and horny too but we won't get into that in this post!)


With just a slight adjustment in his pose, Larry appears a little slimmer.


As he keeps turning away from you, you can see how nicely Larry slims down.


Considerably so, in fact!


Do ya see what I'm talkin' about now?

Nice job, Larry. Thanks.

  4. Larry's lookin' good. I'm going to have to try his technique. I could always use a little slimming.

  6. Now, I'm curious... did Larry stand up so you know it is a "Larry" and not a "Loretta"? Just curious.... But yes, I see what you mean and I will think of this the next time I can not talk myself out of a photo...

  11. Notice how his legs are hidden beneath him thus not exposing his cankles or his thunder thighs. Oh wait that's me!

  13. Nice idea about the slimming, but do we really care! Well, maybe a little. Looks like I won't be at the Blogger party or Roundtop this fall, but I will see you there this spring! Say Hi to Theresa, Mindy and everyone for me! Have lots of fun! Happy Trails, Angie

  14. Morning from Rainy Va.

    Thanks for lesson and I hope you are ok (as good as you can be). Our vacation so far has not been the best, but at least we are on vacation.
    My Home computer is still down and the connection here is slow! I hardly feel like posting and taking pictures in the rain, it doesn't matter about the angle....we are wet.
