I hate taking before pictures. I mean, come on who wants to take a picture of themselves looking the worst? The general concept behind taking before pictures is to show how far you have come and also give you motivation. That is great and all but taking pictures of yourself looking like you do at the time that you decide to make a change with your health and fitness is not always the easiest thing to do. Let’s face it, typically when taking before pictures it is because you want to change something about how you look. You are getting ready to start a journey with health and fitness. Why in the world would you want to take a picture looking like you do now if you want to change it? WHY?! Well for one so you can see how far you have come. Two, you can use it to enter the Beachbody Challenge (win money). Three, MOTIVATION.
First thing I want to share are some tips for taking good before/after pictures.
It’s best to use a digital camera. Save the original high-resolution photos to send in. Have someone else take the photo for you, (avoid selfies).
Stand in front of a plain background or white wall. The less clutter in the background, and the more attention on you the better!
Wear swimwear or tight fitting workout wear. We must be able to clearly see your face and abs in each photo so we can see your results and that it is you in both photos!
Take the photos from two different angles. Front view, and a side view, photos are required. You can put your hands at your sides, or your hips. Whatever you choose, just make sure that you have before/after photos in the same pose so we can accurately see your transformation!
Don’t suck it in or push it out – let us see the REAL YOU!
Now for the different poses.
1. Front view
2. Side view
3. Back view
4. Half twist view
