A great photo can attract someone instantly but a bad one can turn them off straight away.It’s a snap judgement but it prevents them getting to know more about you.If you’re in doubt about whether to post that moody shot or not, ask a friend for their objective opinion. Don’t include exes, best mates, random people in a bar.
Spend 15 minutes googling your facial qualities and find out how professional photographers advise you to shoot them. Don’t use a photo that was taken when you were younger, lighter, or dressed up to the nines.
Try to look as natural as possible, without looking as though you’re trying too hard. You want to convey a sense of openness and honesty in your profile photo and give people an accurate impression of what you look like. Choose a wide variety; you on holiday, one or two with friends, or shots of you doing something you love.
Any photo where you can’t really make out the person’s face is a definite no-no.
Whether it’s because the picture is out of focus, the resolution is too low, or you’re suffering from glowing red eyes, it shouldn’t be on your profile.
We’re guessing that’s someone warm, open, honest, genuine and thoughtful.
