How to take a great photo at the 2013 Breeders’ Cup

How to take a great photo at the 2013 Breeders’ Cup

The Breeders’ Cup World Championship is filled with the rich and famous. There will be the traditional step and repeat and there will be so many other opportunities for a photo op, so you want to make sure that you know how to take a photo with the best of them. Below are some great tips for taking a great photo at the 2013 Breeders’ Cup World Championship at Santa Anita Park on November 1st & 2nd.

Place one hand on your hip with your elbow pointing out so you almost form a triangle with your hand. Do the same with your other arm on your other hip or just leave your other arm hanging loose or wrapped around someone else that you are posing with. Photo: Breeders' Cup Photo ©

First, you want to make sure that you stand with one leg slightly in front of the other. Your front leg should be slightly bent and at an angle and your back leg should be straight.

Second, you want to make sure that you don’t take a picture straight on but you want to pretend that you are standing in a box and you want the toe of your front foot to face the top left or right hand corner of that box and angle your whole body in that direction with the exception of your face of course, which should face straight on. Make sure you stand up straight as this easily can help you look slimmer.

Then you want to place one hand on your hip with your elbow pointing out so you almost form a triangle with your hand. You can do the same with your other arm on your other hip or just leave your other arm hanging loose or wrapped around someone else that you are posing with. Just don’t let your arm lie directly against your body, this flattens your arms and makes them look bigger than they are. If you have an outfit with a pocket you can gently place your hand in the pocket, again making a triangle shape with your arm.

Make sure to relax your face in between each photo to ensure that your smile is natural.

Finally, make sure you have all your undergarments in place. You don’t want to have any underwear lines showing and be sure to use fashion tape wherever necessary to ensure nothing is hanging out that isn’t supposed to, especially in the cleavage department. Try Hollywood Fashion Secrets Double Stick Fashion Tape Strips. And while Spanx are amazing for holding everything in, especially in a photograph, make sure the bottom of your spanks is not showing if you are wearing a shorter dress. Make sure to look at yourself in the mirror at all angles to ensure that a photograph won’t capture something you’ve missed.
