how to crop out a hand

Awkward body parts.

You know the expression “The camera adds ten pounds”? Who am I kidding, of course you do. Hell, I’m sure you’ve used it when you looked extra pudgy around the holiday in christmas photos (I know I have). But, that’s not why I’m here today.

In normal, every day life, my hands are long and slender and look like the hands of a 22 year-old. However, in pictures they look as if they belong to a 500 pound 6-year-old. I can not even begin to describe the agony of trying to crop out a hand. Once cropped it then looks like I have no hands! And for someone who is active on the online dating scene…that doesn’t go over big.

So now I’m left with figuring out how to put my hand on a diet. Not that I had big plans to become a hand model, it would just be nice if it didn’t look like I have creepy baby hands.

This is my plan: Text more regularly, write more posts, and if my hands are feeling bloated cut out the salt intake from their diet.

Maybe I should even start using gloves when I eat, obviously the calories are just getting absorbed into my hands.

If I don’t get this in check I will never be able to do those awkward hand engagement photos…the agony never ends.

I’m also wondering if I should take a class with Tyra, maybe it’s just the way I’m placing my hands, not enough wrist? too much pinky? Whatever the problem, I’m sure she’ll be able to figure it out.
