How to pose at events and get in the society pages too
Tips from Ann Watt , Celebrity Photographer
Ann Watt started her photography career shooting hundreds of photos of dog and her Mom with a Brownie camera.
At the age of 18 she waltzed into Richard Avedon's office with her Brownie and volunteered to help in any way. Years later she interviewed and photographed him for a story and he actually remembered the girl with the Brownie.

- Be aware of what looks good for a photo. Celebrities and socialites know what to wear that photographs well, and how to pose.
- Don’t wear satin or high gloss dresses.
- Wear color. Photogs will always gravitate to the person who stands out in the sea of black.
- Pick colors that flatter your skin tone - peaches, corals, pinks and purples with red tones. Don’t wear white (unless you’re the bride course.) And yellow and beige are not usually flattering.
- When you’re buying a dress for an event, ask your sales person what will photograph well.
- Form fitting clothes always make you look slimmer. Always go with less fabric.
- Practice posing. Get photographed in a variety of poses to see what works. Do you have a good side?
- Show a sexy neckline. (You’ll note the turtle neck this tomato wore in our posted test photos, is really a no, no.)
