Looking Good in Pictures - A Christmas Special

Hey everyone! I've been talking about creativity, spirit, and all the deep stuff that I like to ruminate on. But today is my last blog post before Christmas–unless I get inspired of course–and I think it's time to hit a surface topic.

I hate looking at pictures of myself. In my head, I think I look pretty good most of the time, and when I see a picture that argues that fact, it's a downer for sure. The double chin, the thick arms, protruding nose, etc. Enough. Today I learned how to look good in pictures, and I'm going to show you how too.

Christmas is the time for family pictures. And pictures of you holding your new iPad. And pictures of you with your cat in front of the Christmas tree. Now we know your cat's going to look good no matter what–as long as it doesn't have the glowing devil eyes going on–so let's focus on making you look good.

Photographer Peter Hurley to the rescue. This guy is a little goofy, but he has excellent points. The first video is going to show you how to accentuate your jawline, and the second video is all about the "squinch." Squinching creates that smoulder that makes people just want to be your friend. Watch!
