How to: Photos with Height Differences

One of the biggest problems that large people face in today’s society, is being able to take pictures correctly. The problem begins because now pictures are taken on the fly, with cell phones, and this reduces the amount of setup that goes into a good photo. As a large person, there are several good poses to ensure that no one is cut off in the photo, while still maintaining a good shot.
