14. Alter your camera angle
Remember to change the camera angle to get different perspectives. The image above was taken straight on, while the image below was taken in exactly the same pose, only I moved to the right and shot from a lower angle.
Suddenly you have an image which looks more interesting and leads the viewer’s eye into the frame. I would advise to get the safe shot first but then experiment by moving around the group.
But remember not to shoot too low as this can emphasis portion size and prone for double chins.
