Fitness Pics with Amanda Adams

From Amanda Adams:


Ladies..Ladies...Ladies... lol Don't be discouraged by what I call "Professional Mirror Self Pic Takers" haha that's what I like to call myself sometimes and there are tons of us out there Now these two pics were literally taken within 2 seconds of each other, just different facial expression, posing, lighting, wardrobe adjustments etc etc. It's always good to follow girls to give you motivation, BUT most girls that have done photo shoots know how to pose best to take a good pic haha (did I just embarrass myself?

-Lighting? Instagram filters are awesome to make your muscles pop and add shadows in all the right places

-Heels? That will make your leg muscles pop...duh (but shhh you don't have to actually SHOW the heels in the pic lol)

-Sexy face or Happy face? Well that shows you have confidence lol which suddenly makes you look 100% better than a "I hate life facial expression"

-Lotion? Well obviously your muscles will pop out more...

-Loose pants/bottoms on? If they are tight...well hello skin roll

-Chest out? Boobs Out? Arms Back, Hips twisted Made my sports bra "tighter" to make my boobs "perkier" haha... etc etc etc etc...

-Pants - Pants in first pic cut off at the middle of my stomach and are super tight...which is well easier to have "skin rolls" and just yeah... roll em down which then makes you torso look LONGER. lol

It's so sad but also really funny and true...Now I'm not saying this to make fun of people (hello...I do it weekly) But it's to show you all that you really can't compare your progress to other people's pictures!!! Look at them for motivation and that's it! LOVE YOU ALL!

Along these lines, it's pretty easy to create an illusion of more muscle size if you practice.

If I used all the techniques she uses... I would look the same in both pictures.

I can slouch and look small and fat with huge tits,or I can stand up straight and clear the room (most of the time)

Common sense stuff,but its all good. Sexy pics!

Woaaah! Pretty nice trick! I never tried doing this one, and never thought that it can be effective! :)
Glad I don't need to use this trick. ^_^

I think most of us have used it to some extent when taking a self pic, for whatever reason. Turn your head a bit so the shadow covers a blemish, take a step to the side of the light so it "defines" your muscle, or even doing something to draw attention away from a black eye, lol.
