This one tip can help you project greater depth and confidence.
Take a few seconds to look at the sets of portraits below. What is the difference in the feeling you get from those of each person on the left vs. the right? What do you see that’s different?
World Famous portrait photographer to the stars, Peter Hurley, shares how the simple technique of what he calls “squinching” can transform how we can project ourselves in photos. Sqinching is the art of ever so subtly, and I mean subtly, squeezing one’s lower eyelid to instantly change how we look. It can help project an aura of intelligence, inner depth and outer confidence. Don’t overdo it or you will look like you are trying to read without your glasses. For a bit more improvement add to it a very slight smile. Watch Peter Hurley’s video (link provided) then practice. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ff7nltdBCHs
Other before & after portraits:
Peter Hurley is not only a talented portrait photographer but he’s also a zany, entertaining and engaging personality. Squinching is one of the techniques he employs to evoke movie star portraits. If Brad Pit selects Peter for his photos perhaps you should check what he has to say. Here is a link to one of Peter’s tutorials: http://www.youtube.com/user/peterhurleyphoto
