How to Take Great Photos in a Swimsuit

February 15, 2012

By Madeline Barbour

Since I have covered what to look for in a swimsuit  previously, I thought it might be fun to have fabulous Photographer Madeline Barbour , an experienced photographer and founder of How To Become a Photographer, give you some inside tips of getting a great photo of you in your suit. -SS

We’ve all been there – sitting on a beach in a cover-up or a t-shirt so that no one could see what we look like in a bathing suit. But whoever though that a baggy t-shirt or beach towel made great attire for a photo on the beach? No matter what your shape or size, you CAN take great photos of yourself in a bathing suit. All it takes is a few subtle techniques to show of your best features.

1. Choose a Flattering Bathing Suit – This may seem like a no-brainer, but many women fall into the trap of picking bathing suits that aren’t right for their bodies. Just because you’re not wearing a bikini doesn’t mean that you don’t look sexy! One-piece and tankini suits in solid colors or subtle prints are much more flattering. Look for cute details that accent the features you like and cover up the ones you don’t. If you want to nip in your waist, look for a suit that has ruching around the middle. If you want to cover your thighs, you can get a cute retro-style suit with a low cut that hugs your hips.

2. 45 Degree Angle – This is an easy posing trick that will instantly make you look slimmer. Simply turn your body to a 45 degree angle while keeping your head forward. You might also try turning just your shoulders or your hips for a different look. This trick never fails!

3. Show Off Your Favorite Feature – If you want to get creative with posing, choose poses that shows off your favorite features. If you love your arms, you could put one or both on your hips or behind your head. If your legs are your favorite feature, you could extend them out in front of you and take a photo from the side. You can even play with your hair and let it blow in the beach breeze.

4. Act Natural – While posing can make a picture more fun and interesting, it can look a bit gimmicky if you do too much posing. Try to act natural and pose in ways that feel comfortable to you. Goofy or sensuous expressions can be great as well, as long as they go along with your personality. Don’t be afraid to have a friend or family member snap candid shots of you as well – as long as they have good intentions of making you look great. It’s likely that your beauty will shine through best when you’re being yourself.

5. Be Confident – This is by far the most important tip when it comes to taking great photos, no matter what you’re wearing. If you feel good about yourself and enjoy the moment, you’ll have great pictures.  Remember, you don’t have to be a supermodel to look sexy. Even Marilyn Monroe had curves, so feel proud and show them off!

Outback Bowl Confidential

January 5, 2012

As you know from seeing my packing video and my Michigan State University and University of Georgia football player interview, I spent last week with Outback during Outback Bowl week being given an exclusive inside look into what makes one of my favorite restaurants so amazing.

There are more interviews to come, with John Li, Senior VP of Research and Development, AKA the guy who decides what goes on the menu after making it deliciously awesome, and Becky Maree and Dan Holm of the Outback Social Media team. There will also be more video of my experience on the field. I even… got to interview the fella responsible for inventing the bloomin’ onion. I KNOW!!! Wow, HUH? Stay tuned for that.

But first, here is an inside look at the morning before the game with my co-Social Journo, and Man of Style, Joshua Estrin. I must say he was an absolute treasure to work and play with. I’m still breaking into embarrassingly random and sudden giggle fits.

Oh, and the reason my shoulder looks dislocated is because I’m actually holding up my iPhone video camera with my right arm. I actually have really good posture. LOL

AS ALWAYS… the jewelry I’m wearing in the video can be found right here in my shop.

 

When Joshua Estrin is NOT attending major sporting events with me he can be found at PopMuncher, writing about the world where entertainment, music, fashion and human behavior collide — He revels in the results, a delicious mix of chaos and mayhem. Wrap this all up in a “look ma’ no braces” package and the “Little Engine that never shoulda’, coulda’, or woulda’” has formed strong friendships with a veritable Who’s Who of celebrities.

Why Chicks Dig Jewelry

November 14, 2011

This one is for all of you boys and girls who just don’t get it. And for those who DO, but just haven’t found the words.

It’s also a shameless plug for my two shops, Sueanne Shirzay Jewelry and What We Did 4 Love. : ) Ladies, you know what to do. Tape this post to the TV remote. His forehead… iPad… Refrigerator? If you need help shopping, email me at sueanneshirzay3@gmail.com or call. 516 241-5836. Clicking on the photos will also get you to the sites.

Top 10 Reasons Chicks Dig Jewelry:

1. It always fits. It doesn’t shrink and mock you from the closet like your skinny jeans that you can’t wear anymore do.

8. It comes in pretty pretty rainbow colors. Ahhh rainbows.

9. It feels good on our skin. But it usually looks a little better than a green seaweed masque.
