the perfect profile picture

Is there such a thing as a perfect profile picture? There has been a lot of research around what defines a perfect profile picture and how you are viewed by the world. In 40 milliseconds, we draw a conclusion about people based on a photo! Wow! That is quick! Are you glancing at your social media profile picture right now? A finding from Psychological Science found that there are some best practises for the best social media profile picture:

- smile with teeth

- dark coloured suits, light coloured buttondowns

- jawline with a shadow

- head and shoulders, or head to waist photo

- asymmetrical composition

- unobstructed eyes

 

It also mentioned what to avoid:

- facing the camera straight on or not facing the camera at all

- bright background

-hats 

- sunglasses

- hair, glare and shadows over the eyes

- laughing smile

- sexiness

 

These things are fairly obvious and easy to figure out and most of us probably do not think about these things when we choose our profile picture! Photographer can help you to achieve your perfect picture. it needs to say who you are, and be fit for the purpose you want to use it for. A photographer can help compose a picture which adheres to all the must do'd and don'ts. Until then, check your photo out! And make sure you choose yours correctly and get one done professionally which you feel proud of and enjoy using :-)
