We’ve shown you several ways to look better in photos—squinching, anyone? But what should you avoid in order to look your absolute best and the most photogenic? That's a question we still felt like we had room left to answer. We wanted advice from an expert, someone who knows a thing or two about what looks (or doesn’t look) flattering.
That’s we tapped Getty Images photographer Mike Coppola—who constantly snaps celebrities and knows what works and what doesn’t—to spill on the worst poses you can strike in photos, along with what you should do instead. Coppola breaks down shots of a few of our favorite ladies, explaining exactly how they're doing it right.
Keep scrolling for your dos and don’ts to make your next snaps that much better.
