Whether you are taking photos for a dating site, social media website, your partner or simply for your own purposes, you need to know the best way to capture your natural appearance. Of course, you don't need to be a professional photographer to make you more photogenic! All you need are these tips and you will look hotter than ever. If you are on that dating site after all, be prepared for an overload of inbox messages from babes eager to talk to you!
Lighting is definitely the most important when capturing a photo. If you have bad lighting, not only is it hard to see what you actually look like, but it can give a completely unflattering appearance as well. Your face has so many things such as curves and bone structure that can cause shadows making your nose look larger than it is, or crooked or your eye much smaller than the other. Having the right lighting will not only eliminate any bad images, but can also make you look much sexier as it can accentuate that sexy jaw line or deep green eyes.
Now of course you aren't going to want to go out and spend a ton of money on a professional camera and you most definitely don't have to. Almost everything comes in high-definition now, whether it is your mobile camera, webcam or digital camera. Work with what you have and if you have none of the above, you can get a decent quality camera for a very inexpensive amount.
Before taking your pictures for that dating site that you're eagerly trying to pick up on, make sure to check out what is behind you in the photo. People like to analyse and they will definitely notice those five coffee cups behind you, or condom wrappers or that giant mess that you call your house. Clean up your background so assumptions can't be made before you get a chance to prove yourself.
Lastly, make sure you look nice. This shouldn't be hard, right? There is no need for you to overdress for your photos because you don't want to look like you are trying too hard to impress people, but look simple yet sexy. No dirty socks or unintentional holes in your pants, or sweat stains on your shirt. There is nothing more that will make someone else run the other way. Make sure your teeth are clean and white; your hair is decent and snap away!
If all else fails, there are some amazing websites out there that allow you to spruce up your photos for free and they aren't hard to use either.
