Since these photos and videos will be a lasting reminder of your first epic skydive, you’ll want these memorable images to be all that they can be. Likewise, you’ll want to make sure that you are looking picture perfect. So, considering you’ll be free falling at terminal velocity, how exactly do you look good while skydiving?

  • Dress For Success

Picking the right outfit can make or break your experience and affects the quality of photos you get from your skydive. For your comfort and for the sake of taking stellar skydiving photos, avoid wearing anything too baggy or bulky. Instead, select close-fitting, weather-appropriate layers. 

  • Smile!

The bigger the smile, the better! Smiling keeps your cheek muscles engaged and helps avoid any flappy-faced photos. 

  • Tame Your Locks 

If you have long hair or a long beard make sure it is securely fastened. Loose hair can not only end up a tangled mess but it can cover your face and your instructor’s face ruining pictures and obstructing your view!

  • Interact

One of the easiest ways to make sure you look good while skydiving is to show the camera some love. Blow kisses, put up peace signs or give a thumbs up. This is your time to shine!
