    Squinching in Photography
    This is what Peter Hurley, the Newyork and Los Angeles based professional photographer has been doing when he gets a client/model with fearful/frustrated look in front of the camera to get better confident look he says. Its what he calls Squinch (your eyelid- lower one specifically). Literal meaning of the word is 'transitive verb 1: to screw up (the eyes or face); squint 2: to make more compact'. But his definition for Squich is as below

    With ‘squinching,’ you’re lifting and tightening the lower eyelid, while only letting the top one come down a hair. It might seem like a slight difference (and it is) but it’s a big deal when you get in front of the camera, Hurley continues. Now watch the video.

    Below is another video about tips he will do when somebody is infornt of camera- the jaw trick

    Now he has a DVD out for helping photographers- find below some highlights in below video
