It seems that successful women are always the most attractive. Have you noticed the female entrepreneurs, business owners, companies CEOs? It gives the impression that there is something in their personal appearance that attracts good luck, that makes your life a little easier. A kind of magical aura that makes them receive that "phone call", get the "signature" of that "contract", get that “license” approved or simply give them that "promotion".
... you are as beautiful as you manage to project it to others ...
So yes, the accumulated experience as a Boudoir Photographer has made me believe that the Visual Impact psychologically affects the people whom you interact with. It affects them for good or for bad. As it happens with all visual art. The perception of beauty affects the behavior of a human being and sometimes subdues it. Have you heard about Stendhal Syndrome? The perception of beauty accelerates the heart rate, this, oxygenates the brain and consequently modifies behavior.
Understanding this fact puts you in an advantageous position to consciously influence others with your Visual Impact. That Visual Impact could have a very large amount of natural components, however, what I have discovered in my years as a photographer is that you are as beautiful as you manage to project it to others. As it turns out, people understand beauty from their own personality formation and cultural patterns. In other words, they are not based on a rule of “universal” beauty, but rather based on their own rules learned in their own social contexts.
How others perceive your beauty depends a lot on how you project it. That is in simple words, CONFIDENCE, SELF-ESTEEM and SELF-LOVE. What you feel for yourself will be what others will feel.
