THEY ACTUALLY KNOW LOTS OF EYE TRICKS
How many times have you seen an otherwise great picture of yourself where your eyes are closed or half-closed (and not in that cool aforementioned squinching way)? It’s annoying. To avoid: Make sure the person taking the pic counts down from there, keep your eyes closed for three and two, then, when they say one, open ’em up. You’ll look alert and refreshed and never like you’re falling asleep mid-shot.
