Hair Romance x Optus Collaboration

I’m tremendous excited to be running with Optus at the Samsung Galaxy S10 release and, in partnership with Bumble, we would like to mean you can put your best possible headshot in the market. We are aware of it will also be laborious to get a good profile pic!
Check out this video to see what I imply.
1. Find your gentle
Look for cushy even gentle. If it’s truly sunny, turning your again to the solar can do the trick to forestall you squinting on your footage.
Avoid dappled gentle too. It would possibly glance gorgeous in actual existence, however in footage it casts ordinary shadows, and makes you glance blotchy and bruised!
2. Know your good facet
Flip your hair over and take a few follow pictures. Is there a facet that feels extra at ease? Everyone has a good facet (hi, Mariah Carey) and whenever you get that attitude, you’ll nail that pic each and every time.
My pal Rohan instructed me in regards to the ‘look over the fence’ trick, which is helping along with your good facet too. Imagine you’re peering over your lawn fence and roughly crane your neck moderately. It’ll give a boost to your jawline and make your neck glance longer and slimmer.
three. Use a good digital camera
No longer do you wish to have to get in professional equipment, the newest telephones (just like the Samsung Galaxy S10) have one of the best possible cameras round, now with a couple of lenses that ship improbable high quality. Even as a skilled photographer, I to find myself achieving for my telephone greater than my DSLR nowadays.
four. Think of one thing glad
Remember Tyra and her “smize” on Next Top Model? Well the trick is to believe one thing that makes you truly glad after which glance directly down the lens of the digital camera. If you hate having your picture taken, it’s going to come throughout thru your eyes, so move to your glad position as a substitute.
five. And breathe
So many of us dangle their breath whilst having their image taken! Take a large deep breath out and in, then proceed to breathe usually and also you’ll be shocked how significantly better the image seems to be.
Still suppose you want to do with a little assist? Come and notice me!
