Tip # 48: Getting Your Inspiration

Magazines are an incredible source of information. Look beyond the makeup and hairstyle tips, the cool friendship quizzes, the latest fashion-must-haves, and find the poses that really call to you.

These pictures are a great way to show your friend what you’re looking for, but don’t let her dwell too long on the pose, trying to get it just so. You want to give her the general ideal then let her play around with it and have fun. The best part is, you can use the pose with another friend, and she’ll have a completely different take on it.

So start now, and make a file of all the pictures that inspire you. Your photos will look better for it. Trust me.
