The Truth About How To Take Fabulous Before and After Pictures

No matter what fitness program you decide to use to tone up and get in shape – remember that it’s not just the numbers on the scale that you’ll want to track.  When starting any workout program, it’s essential to take your before and after photos. You may not feel like taking pictures now, but — trust me — they are a great way for you to visualize (and honestly, brag about) your fitness transformation 30, 60, 90, and 120 days from now. Without having pics of today or Day 1, it’s more difficult to show off how far you came.

Take three different poses. Front facing, side facing, and back facing 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, same clothes and the same location so we can accurately see your transformation!

We’ve seen some incredible “Before” and “After” photos…and we have also seen some that did not portray the person in the best light. The two most important factors are 1.  What you are wearing and 2.  Where you’re standing.

  • It’s best to use a digital camera. However if you don’t have one of those download a camera timer app to your phone.  This will allow you to get yourself in the best position and see what’s going on before the front facing camera on your phone shoots.  Make sure your phone is at a level that won’t be too far up or too far down.  Either level can make your pictures distorted.
  • 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 short bottoms and a sports bra.  Do not cover your midsection with a full shirt because you will not be able to really see the difference in your waist.  This scares a lot of ladies but the payoff is worth more than your fear.  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 three different poses. Front facing, side facing, and back facing 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, same clothes and the same location so we can accurately see your transformation!
  • Don’t suck it in or push it out – let us see the REAL YOU!

Your “Before” and “After” photos and measurements can be a better way to really see your progress and accomplishments along the way toward reaching your goal.  Just remember to go for it and take these photos.  It will feel really good to have those “Before” and “After” pics that you can keep forever to remind yourself of that awesome fitness and/or weight loss accomplishment.
