When I started modeling at 12 years old I thought I would grow to a full 5’9 because my dad was tall. To my disappointment, I did not inherit that gene. At a mere 5’6, I struggled to get jobs doing print only.
However, I learned some tricks from photographers on how to appear taller.
Here’s your cheat sheet:
- Wear solids
- Avoid baggy clothes
- Avoid low rise pants
- Wear nude heels
- Stand up straight, no slouching
- Cross your legs, it’s an optical illusion
- Don’t stand next to a super tall person
Know your angels and position the camera at eyes length
Here’s a pic of me trying to elongate myself with a busted knee brace
Do you have any tricks and tips to share?
Happy Saturday everyone!
