Do You Tilt?

Have you ever seen a professional picture of someone with their head tilted to one side? Or having their hand next to their chin with one finger extended and leaning to it? These poses have their place in photos for your loved ones but not in photos to be used for business purposes.

Why? Because the subliminal message is that you are giving away your power. This is a submissive pose. It does not convey the confidence and competence that you want your business portrait to reflect.

Another time to be watchful to avoid this posture is when you are being interviewed by a prospective client or a reporter. Keep your head straight and make good eye contact. It shows that you are confident and secure.
