Even if you are photogenic, it can be tough getting the perfect shot to set as your profile picture. If you AREN’T photogenic, then it can be infinitely worse. Everyone knows that no chick is going to hit you up on your dating site if you can’t even manage an attractive photo. First impressions are everything to women! Yeah, yeah, it might seem a little feminine to be setting on the webcam taking selfies, but practice really does make perfect. Stick to these three fundamentals to get the perfect picture to show off to the ladies.
“Keep the webcam straight at face level”
Come on, as a guy, you know angle is everything. From DIY projects to the bedroom, getting just the right angle is crucial, and the same goes for taking photos. Getting different views by using a webcam might seem hard to do, but if guys are good at one thing, it’s being innovative! Pick your laptop or computer up, put it on some books or whatever you want to get it more elevated. When taking pictures, a bird’s eye view will make you look thinner and your face will have more definition. Not to mention it’ll make your eyes look great, which chicks totally dig. A straight-on headshot might be okay, but never use a worm’s eye view. That’ll make you look bloated and…just don’t, okay?
“Make sure that the lighting in the room is good”
That dark bedroom your laptop’s in might be good for relaxing and surfing the internet, but it definitely isn’t good for snapping a photo. The low lighting makes your picture look grainy, shows off any blemishes you might not be too proud of, and washes you out. Come on, man! Open up those blinds for a bit and get a picture with some natural light. It’s guaranteed to make you look healthier, sexier, and take a clearer photo. Girls don’t really want to get with guys who have shifty dark photos as their profile image – the hot ones aren’t into the creeper look, so keep your photos on the bright side!
Once you take a photo, that doesn’t have to be the end of it. Especially for those of you with Photoshop, once you get that perfect shot you can keep editing it so you look as good as possible. Even basic webcams usually have a function for brightness, color saturation, and boring tweaking things like that to make you look even better. Show girls those baby blues by lightening them even more, and watch the girls come pouring in! If you aren’t too webcam-savvy, look up a tutorial online and have fun.
Your profile picture on a dating site can make or break you, so you have to look your best. You might not be a model, but you can make yourself look like one with these easy fixes. A lot of guys have not perfected the art of the self portrait, so you’ll have a leg up already! You deserve to get a hot babe, so make sure that you do everything you can to bag her!
