I really don't like my legs in this picture, I don't feel fat right now- I just want skinnier legs.
Any models tips how to do so?

Either work with a better photographer that can light you in a more flattering way, or lose weight. You can't spot reduce fat on your legs so will have to undergo a lifestyle change to keep your body fat percentage permanently lower. What's your diet and exercise like? Are you always wishing you had slimmer legs or is it just that photo? In which case it's just an unflattering photo.

I've known models who had defined muscled legs but when they stopped excercising, their legs became slimmer.

I'm not offering you advice but can only suggest I don't see anything wrong with the shape/size of your legs.

From your other pictures, your legs are already very slim and toned. I think it's just an unflattering photo. If a photographer shoots you from head height or higher, it will foreshorten your legs, making them look shorter and larger.

There's no way to lose weight on only one part of your body as weight distribution is genetic. The only way is to lose weight overall and you definitely don't need to lose weight anywhere.

Its the lighting and camera angle - the difference between getting those wrong andright is enormous on how you look.

If wrong, they will make your legs look short, stumpy and have no shape

Your legs are in the correct proportions
If you have to ask why I do it, you will never understand the reason why

Approximately several million women in the world would die for legs like the ones in your portfolio.

I think you need to agree with what everyone's saying, it's an unflattering photo/lighting/pose. i'm not sure i'm keen on it; you have way better in your port on here already.
You do not need to lose any weight at all, your already a size 6 and have stunning legs in the other images. There's always an image we hate out of the set on pictures taken at a shoot, and unfortunately we can't always stop the photographers from using it if they wish to. If you don't like it you could always speak to the photographer nicely and explain and see if you can come to an arrangement to have it taken down

Pretty close to perfect legs in this and most of the other fotos on your profile:



Delete the picture you don't like, and forget about it.
It's partly because you're standing flat footed, but mostly the angle it's shot from and the lighting.


Wish you were a bit closer to me!
It's not Fine Art just because it's in Black and White.

Agree with others, there is absolutely NOTHING wrong with your pins.
But, it doesnt matter how good a model is, they can still take an unflattering photo if the pose, lighting and position of the camera isnt correct.
We have ALL taken them at some point.

Hey there!

I'll second (third/fourth?) the opinions on here- it's an unflattering photo.

I have very muscular legs in proportion to the rest of me from years of gymnastics/martial arts and what I find helps is always stand on your toes in photos- it makes the legs look longer and more toned. Also, put one leg slightly in front of the other (Victoria Beckham's an expert at it but also check out some art-nude stuff).

Hope that helps!
