Unsure of which pics for profiles actually work and which don't? It's helpful to see what types of photos not to use in online dating profiles. These examples will show you how to take better photographs for use in your profile.
One trick professional photographers have is that they take lots of different pictures during a session. There's a good reason for this. As we pose, some of those small movements our face makes gives us the appearance that we're pensive or in thought, while others can show us happy and content.
This picture makes it seem as if the woman is just about to smile, but since she isn't smiling yet a potential match may just pass her profile by. No one wants to date a grump.
