Today I wanted to share a secret with you, my secret for not having a double chin in photographs. You know, when I know they’re happening and am not wrestling children still.
It’s not my secret, it’s one I stumbled across while perusing one of the several photography websites I frequent. And, despite the fact that it’s featured on a Photoshop Insider blog, it’s all about light and facial angles. So don’t panic if you don’t have Photoshop. Not needed.

It will feel weird, thrusting your face forward and pulling it slowly back a little. But trust me. It works. And after you’ve successfully done it a few times you’ll get a feel for just how much you need to extend and tilt to get that perfect face forward portait shot..of you!
Here’s my lame video of me demonstrating with my wibbly wobbly extra chins.
