Looking Good in Photos: Seated

December 04, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

If you are about to be photographed while seated, the key to looking your best is to sit on the front edge, rather than leaning back or sunk into the chair. 

Perching on the edge of the seat allows you to have good posture. Sitting up straight, even leaning slightly forward, makes you look engaged with your viewer. You may be able to twist to adjust your angle to the camera, as well, which is a little more slimming than being photographed straight on.

Previous posing tips (like bending) still apply!

Check for clothing bunching up before the shot, too! You might need to sit on the back of your jacket or unbutton it to keep it smooth.

Hopefully, your photographer will guide you to the best position, and watch out for all those things.
