One Pose Hundred Pictures

Understandable that you want the perfect picture but please, the trial and errors for that one picture are meant to be in your gallery not on your Snapchat, Instagram, and WhatsApp stories. Honestly, if you keep posting one pose with different angles then it loses the charm, all anyone will do is tap tap and story ends. In all that the main perfect picture shall be lost. So, kindly don’t go on flooding!

Pictures with the Elders

What I have usually noticed is that whenever someone puts a picture with their elders they really don’t care how the other person looks, at times it’ll be a smiling you with your grandma having a frown or looking somewhere else. You, look drop dead gorgeous in the picture whereas your granny is not posing at all! Stop being selfish and make sure both of you look good in the picture. Sure, people will drop in comments saying, “Mashallah,” and “beauties.” But trust me, don’t believe every comment you see.

Group Photos

Genuinely saying, pick one group photo and that’s good enough. No one is interested in seeing trillion group photos with the same pose and every picture is posted because in one someone doesn’t look good whereas in the other he looks good and you know how it goes. Pick the best one and keep quality over quantity.
