TIPS FOR TAKING YOUR PHOTO
Set your phone up on a chair about waist height and open your camera app using the front facing camera. Set a self-timer for 10s to allow yourself enough time to get into position.
1. Show Your Shape
To compare the changes, you’ll need to see the changes. It’s impossible to do this if you’re wearing a baggy shirt or shorts. Form-fitting activewear/swimwear is best. Your stomach area should be visible, as this is a great indicator of weight loss and/or muscle gain.
2. Stand in Natural Light
Try to take your photo in natural daylight. If that isn’t possible, ensure that your room is well lit and there is as much light as possible.
3. Shoot from Three Angles
To understand the full scope of how your body is changing, it’s important to capture your front, side, and back. For consistency, shoot the same side every time.
4. Maintain Good Posture
Stand up straight, with your arms at your sides, flex your core on the front and side photo, and flex your back on the back photo.
