Can someone be very beautiful in person, but not very photogenic?

Absolutely!
Some people are not naturally photogenic, I will also become tense and rigid in front of the camera, I have camera lens phobia, I am worried that my photos are not good. But now I can practice some tips and tricks to look natural and better in photos. Maybe you can try it.

Know your angle. Most people don't have perfectly symmetrical faces, I would say some of the pictures taken of people are of the left side of the face and that's because people look significantly better from that angle.

Practice. Whether you practice a pose in front of the mirror or use your camera's self-timer, a big part of looking good comes with feeling comfortable. So loosen up, smile, and pretend someone's snapping your picture.

Light. Light is a critical factor in creating a successful image. light determines not only brightness and darkness, but also tone, mood, and the atmosphere. Therefore it is necessary to control and manipulate light correctly in order to get the best texture.

Photo BackgroundEach element of a photograph has the power to add to or detract from its overall appeal, it’s important to pay close attention to every single detail that you include in the photo—even the background. When you take photos indoor, you need to choose a suitable background. You can use walls, sofas, and windows as a background. You can buy photography backdrops if you can not find a suitable background or props.
