What’s the deal with squinching and smizing?
Squinching and a smizing are basically the same thing– smiling with your eyes, or not allowing your eyes to be fully open. Fully open makes for a blank expression. So, the key is not quite fully open, not quite squinting. In between is the magical “squinch.”

Do you use the squinching/smizing technique for taking pictures? Would love to know!
