Fake smiles plagues photographers and clients alike. How many times have you looked at a picture and thought, ‘That person looks so fake?
The only true indicator of happiness is when the muscles along the sides of the eyes and mouth are activated and pulled up. However, only 1 in 10 people can consciously activate that muscle. A lot of people come to photoshoot, they are nervous , and try hard to smile which end up looking fake. You can see the pictures for difference
Capturing true happiness is essential for making a picture feel genuine, warm and real. The more I can inspire my clients to feel happy genuinely, the more they will genuinely smile. Once you see the smile reach their eyes, I know I will get the right shot.
