    *Shocking! Instantly Become More Photogenic By Tilting Your Head Forward*
    I can’t believe this makes such a difference….but it does!

    For all you self conscious people hiding behind cartoon avatars, you’re
    beautiful, but you just need to know how to take a proper #selfie

    Watch, learn, smile, shoot, post, profit. :)

    I already see many wonderful portraits posted for this week’s “beauty”
    #womeninphotographythemes . For those of you looking to refine your
    portraiture skills, I urge you to spend 15 minutes watching +Peter Hurley discuss
    jawline… you will never approach portraiture the same again!

    I typically like sharing articles by other #womeninphotography , but having
    visited Peter’s studio in NYC and experienced his work up close and
    personal, he truly is the best teacher on the subject… his portraits all
    capture the pure beauty of his subjects with his simple and sophisticated
    style. He does ramble a little in the video, but it is still worth the
    watch… this technique is invaluable! Let’s welcome him as an honorary
    woman for the day!

    This is hugely helpful to me, especially as senior portrait season 2014
    approaches. Does this technique look awkward on wider shots? Should it only
    be reserved for headshots?

    My God, Peter, that’s incredible. What a great lesson. At age
    51, I have gotten too heavy a bodyweight, and damn, it shows. Photos
    make me look ten years older than the me I see in the mirror. I need to
    try this jawline trick. Thank you.

    If you really want to accentuate your jaw; grow a beard. Most men look more
    attractive with a 5 to 10 day stubble.

    That is a physical therapy exercise too for neck issues lol. Love it. I can

    So today the Google+ DevRel team took the afternoon off for a little team
    offsite. This jawline trick from +Peter Hurley has been going around
    lately, so we tried it a bit and everyone was really amazed at the results.
    You should see some photos soon from myself, +Ade Oshineye, +Chris Chabot
    and others. Try this technique yourself the next time you’re doing
    portraits. It really does feel weird, but the results are great!

    your forehead out (think Aliens) and drop the chin. Simple! Great tip!

    good video BUT what to do if your model has a pretty long neck? then he
    looks like a giraffe and thats pretty uncool.

    • Desert Foxchild

    Part of this is also not over smiling. I am not an expert, but smiling too
    strongly causes deep lines in the face around the mouth and under the
    cheeks. Its not that flattering compared to the smooth look of a subtle
    Great video Peter, glad I found it!

    Might have posted this before, but one of my favorite videos on getting the
    best of your ugly face for a photo. Really good tips from a professional
    photographer (+Peter Hurley) on how to angle your face to get the best
    picture possible.

    It’s also all about the razor, and the hot water, and the shaving cream.
    And the flossing and the brushing. And working out. And the hair. Then,
    it’s all about the jaw and squinching. Good video!

    This is a really informative video. However, I think you should reshoot it
    with a slightly modified script. Do a find-and-replace on two words: guys,
    and action. Replace all instances of “guys” with “motherfuckers,” and all
    instances of “action” with “bullshit.” This will not directly solve the
    problem of the annoying verbal affections, but it will do one of two
    things: Make this video both informative *and* very funny, or encourage a
    close friend or colleague to speak up during editing and help solve the
    issue that they were afraid to bring up the first time around.

    *Fifteen minutes to improve your head shot photo: Jaws revisited!*
    *I rarely watch instructional videos as they are time consuming, but Peter
    Hurley here does a great job. If you´re impatient go the 9th minute to see
    the results*

    Such a simple trick and such a huge improvement! No expensive equipment or
    post-processing needed to enormously improve your head shot. Next time you
    need one for your CV have your photographer watch this first!
    *Like Peter says ´it may feel weird, but if it looks great who cares´*

    *I have changed my profile photo for today to my formal one to show some
