Okay, so it actually goes without saying that the duck lips in pictures isn’t a good look for anyone. A fact confirmed by the dozen of memes, Facebook pages, and even an Anti Duckface website. But taking a good photo goes beyond lips that resemble a bird’s or any animal for that matter. Peter Hurley, a leading head shot photographer for celebrities offers some tips via the New York Times. Some may go against natural instinct, but they’ll help you look great in your photos.
Do the E.T.

Laugh it up
Laughing will bring out natural expressions and help your face, and more importantly your mouth, relax.
