How to Look Taller in Photos

Thursday, February 14, 2013



Having a good photo matters a lot especially if you are a fashion blogger, like me. Not everyone is blessed with long legs maybe because of our genes. I am an Asian and basically, Asians are petite except for those who have already been mixed with other races. I’m such a short gal and I always make sure I look taller in my photos because having a good height would always make you look gorgeous in every outfit you wear.  I may not look tall in person, but at least in blogospheres I could live my model-like dream
height through my photos on this blog. Here are some of the tips you could learn from these lovely people. I have learned a lot from them. I hope you do too. (^-^)

Always try to make the height of the camera right around your chest. It gives the most natural proportions. Anything from a lower angle, will give you the illusion of height, but it will elongate the bottom half and shorten the top half. Photos from above will shorten you, so avoid that. You can always try different poses, maybe where you are sitting on a curb so you can’t really see how tall you are. Also doing shots from knees and up won’t show how tall you really are.

If you want to look taller, place the camera on the same height as your hips and stand with your back straight.

Your photographer’s style and lenses are also important factors.
Wear heels for sure. And however, if you don’t wear them you can tiptoe. Also it is also about the clothes which you choose. Long shirts and sweaters naturally make you look shorter. You better wear high waist. I have read a lot of articles about ‘how to grow up taller’ but people admit that exercising only improves the straightness of body.
Ask the photographer to crouch/sit while taking pictures. That should do the trick.


Standing with your ankles crossed and your hands on your hips can make you look a little taller and leaner :)
You just set your camera at waist-length and angle it upwards. For posing, you just stand up straight and lean a little backwards. Elongate your neck and try not to scrunch up your arms or legs ’cause it could shorten your limbs instead of adding to the illusion of lengthier limbs.
Well you can do one thing...Wear a long dress with a high heel..Then no one identify your height…If you wear a short dress with a high heel than your height will be clearly visible..I think you should try this once...May be it works.



I hope you guys enjoyed this post.. :)
