The right angle (pun intended) Part I

Warning: Super Heavy Pic & Fairly long Entry

Yea, so you noticed.

I’m posting up a lot of bigcheese photos recently.

I am trying to experiment with the angles because I’m still not convinced I can only look good in one particular angle.

You see, this is not my secret anymore. People who are observant will notice that I always pose right while sitting/standing/lying down (don’t think otherwise, you twisted antenna Keju).


"I always strike a pose that shows more of the right side of my face” would be more precise.

To quote Jasiminne who quoted Tyra Bank who once said “it took me 5 years to find my perfect angle”. She and I both agree that Tyra Bank is stupid. It only took us 5 days to figure out our most flattering angle. No cowdung or buffalopoo. Just practise, practise and practise (camwhoring, that is).

Guys don’t understand why when girls pose, they always tilt their head 45° to the east/west/north/south (whichever way that will possibly make you look remotely like Kristin Kreuk). Now they do.

Everyone has a "better" angle. So stop asking why I always pose the same way. Because it is MY pose.

Let me show you cheesie’s angle:

It is ugly-proof!!!




I’m ok with forever posing my angle, but mom is not!!!

While taking photos for me, she started complaining why I always show my right face instead of looking straight or turn to the left.

“Aiyo, you know you always pose like this hor, very sien leh, everybody’s gonna get sick of your right face. Where got people like this one.”


Mom. Obviously you are not qualified to be a pose coordinator, yet.

If you think I pose forever the same,


Cyndi Wang 王心凌, a Taiwanese lollipop singer, in case you don’t already know.

left face                                          left face

left face                                          left face

left face                                          left face

left face                                          left face

left face                                          left face

left face                                          left face

Look, if you ever doubt I purposely only post pictures of hers of the same angle and pose (since she has like hundreds of gallery websites), go google abit to prove yourselves wrong.

95% of her pictures are showing her left face.

[HONEY] Album and [Shan Yao 2005] Album

left face                                          left face

[Cyndi Loves You] Album and [Cyndi With U] Album

left face                                          left face

Every freaking CD album cover!!!

And this month’s iFEEL magazine that features her on the cover.

Even the inside 4 pages spread!!!

Left face left face left face left face!!!!

Ok now you say, “Eh, no ah, the right page of the bottom pic shows her right face leh.”

Well before I knock your head with a 10 pound Babybel

Look again!! Carefully!

You know got such thing called “Flip Canvas Horizontal” in Photoshop???

Wake up!

Ok now, this is the only pic of hers which showcases her right face.

If it doesn’t say Cyndi, you will never guess it’s her right? Looks so different no? See how much can a perfect angle do.

I look good from the right, Cyndi looks good from the left. And we make the perfect camwhore buddies. Muahaha.

I have my perfect camwhore buddie already--Aki the Lolita Mui Mui!

I damn love her camera phone i tell you! (some dodgy brand, but it makes your face extra slim!)

So, what if!

My potential camwhore buddy also only poses the right side? Then how?


Wait la. Stay cheesed for part II to find out soon.


36 people cheesed:

    How magical the Perfect Angle can make not-so-pretty people (like Cyndi) to look so photogenic!!

    post right is you, princess...but if you pose left you definetely look different and I might cant recognize that is really you.

    Im sure you get what I mean. =)

    try putting the camera on 45' northeast or northwest upwards(your face facing 0' la of course)..your face will look slimmer and will emphasis your eyes..proven and optically tested..for me la..

    I don't think a lot of ppl would have their front face as a perfect angle, unless they r adriana lima... ahaha

    but yeah i think mine is.... left face?

    still searching for my perfect angle (obviously haven't done much cam whoring)

  • At 4/28/2006 10:26:00 AM, Blogger Tiger said…

    interesting... didn't really think about this. MAybe I'm a slight right and front face. Left side CMI also.

    xes:get a baby napkin when you read blogs next time =)

    kelly & tiger: practice start today!

    Funny, Mona Lisa only poses on her left.

    And that's nonsense lah, having a particular side; if you're a supermodel, you should have symmetrical features. Which means it doesn't matter left or right. I think I'm an all-sider myself, but my pictures are of my left because the shutter is on the left when it faces me. And dramatic lighting does better things for my features than angle.

    Since shutters are usually on the right finger (when not camwhoring), it is actually more of a challenge (not to mention less ergonomic) to use your left hand to camwhore handheld. (Or you could turn the camera upside-down and use your right hand.) For that, I salute you!

    On the plus side, you look different in every picture, and if people ever complain that you look the same, you can always try the other side. Yeah, I got pictures of the other side of the moon. :O

    If only I knew enough male camwhores who pose one side, then I could ask if that relates to their alignment.

    Hie! wah, so many of cindi's face that i got mix up your face with hers. Was scrolling the mouse wheel down for so long, thought her face would never end in this post! haha..nice to meet u.

  • At 4/28/2006 06:37:00 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said…

    The only reason Cyndi takes pictures showing her left side is because her lip is lopsided. Go watch a drama of her and yeah.. You'd notice.

  • At 4/28/2006 08:11:00 PM, Blogger kerkiemonster said…

    Cyndi's best side's on the left 'cause her left eye is smaller. By taking photos from the left side, the difference in the sizes of her eyes are reduced.

    'Nuff said, gimme the perfect angle anytime!!

  • At 4/28/2006 09:50:00 PM, Blogger cheesie said…

    april rain: Hey sweetie, welcome. No worries at all. =)

    kampungkai: Hello and welcome =)

    selfairy & kerkiemonster: i've never seen her MV or drama. Shall go download some. =P

    i SO agree with you. it's all about the angles. hehe. the bad thing about it is that when ppl see ur pics, they'll go, "IS THAT YOU?" hahaha. itz like wah so chun from the side and from the front itz like cheh not so hot. lol. i have a habit of turning my head to the left or looking down when i take pics because i have fat cheeks. ahaha.

    Jen: Hey babe, you're here =)

    mizzvickz: yea lor. some people are especially against top-down big eyes shots which they say is plain "acting cute". But i would say that's pretty flattering for most girls.

    plue_lp: Thanx for commenting. =)

  • At 4/29/2006 01:15:00 AM, Anonymous victor said…

    if tht person's best angle is the back of his/her head, then it would be pathetic... muahaha

  • At 4/29/2006 01:17:00 AM, Blogger Asyraf Lee said…

    It's a sad thing when a photographer knows on how people should pose like, but dont know how to pose for himself :P

    it's Tyra BankS, by the way, not Bank.

    these photos are quarter pounders..
    really heavy with cheese...
    cheesily captivating... :O

    best tip for everyday look-good photo shots,
    get more sleep, eat more fruits and drink more water...
    your eyebags were showing quite badly in the previous "cuppie day" post...

    on the subject of wang xin lin,
    besides her lip being slightly lopsided,
    notice also that she has a thicker lower lip and the some of the make-up artists failed to notice it and made her pouty lips looked more like drooping lips.. lol..

  • At 4/29/2006 10:54:00 AM, Blogger cheesie said…

    asyraf:: Hey i think i've seen your name somewhere before. Photography forum maybe? Like i say, a bigass mirror and a good camera (tripod for the more advanced camwhores) will do!

    anonymice: Thanx for the correction, i didn't know she own more than one. Oh by the way my plural kinda sucks. =)

    Damion:Thanx so much for tips! Actually i'm trying my best to follow them. But blame those late night blogging! =(((
