    Make sure a good photographer takes the photos.

    If you're not really photogenic, go for unplanned photos where you don't need to pose.

    Full frontals can really frighten people into being less photogenic than they really are.

    read up on photography skills and pose yourself accordingly, look at others in those pictures.

    Your photos will improve with your increased knowledge and perception, Princessa

    To look good in pictures, it's important to come across relaxed and natural looking. If you're a bit over weight you can turn slightly sideways to appear thinner. I prefer to see people smiling in pictures. It makes them seem friendlier with good composure.

    I am over 6 feet tall- and even then when I am shooting headshots and most portraits I like to use a small ladder. Better angles on the face, larger more pronounced eyes, and for slightly to very overweight people- it really thins out their look. A relaxed variety of expressions also really helps.

    Best to ask a professional photograph this question. I suppose the key is 'lighting.' Bright full sunlight will wash you out. What kind of a mood do you want to portray. It can be mysterious where you don't even see all of your features. Unless done on purpose you won't want a picture with your eyes closed, squinting or not looking bright and full of life.

    I guess you have to find wich is the best side of your face... I found out that my best side is the right one, so I usually take pictures showing that side instead of the left one... I look so different!!!
    Then you have to look as natural as possible... I believe that is the point!!!!

    I agree with the other hubbers here, but I would like to add that the best way to find your best side and expressions are to experiment in the mirror.

    Practice what looks good so when you know that the camera is about to go off then your reaction is instant.

    Actors, models and celebrities do the same thing.

    Try to practice a few different looks to lessen the risk of looking the same in all of your photos.

    I generally face AWAY from the camera, just to show my best side! lol
