Well, body language is the most important factor that contributes to getting incredible shots. Pick up the nearest magazine and see the model or your favourite celebrity posing on the cover. Besides her flawless makeup and dreamy dress, it is her body language that portrays her confident women.

1. Figure Out The Perfect Angle
The camera should be at the eye level of the model. If it is not at the eye level then make it higher thanthe eyes level as everyone looks great from above!

Most importantly, this trick will help you to come up with an authentic smile that works best. A warm and beautiful smile comes from within. So think of beautiful things to come up with a true smile.

3. Fix The Light
The brighter it is, the better it will be! Low light will ruin your everyday photography. Be a sunflower and turn your face towards light. Either t is window, doorway, candle, lamp, mirror or car light, face the light to get a perfect photo.
Moreover, never put a light at your right or left, always keep it right in front of you. The light out aside can form weird shadows on your face, ruining the photo completely.
4. Keep a Check on Your Hands
