Though we love backgrounds focused on the big picture of you, we understand not everyone has a perfect head shot, or may have something else they’d like to focus on.
Chi Modu is a photojournalist so provides a beautiful background he’s taken, adding his own image as an avatar. This is a fantastic way to showcase his craft.
Similarly, Nicole Norris focuses on location primarily. An adventure-lover, this reflects her passions and personality.
So, if you are having trouble finding a large image of yourself to use, try an image you’ve taken that embodies something you love; a location, activity or point in time meaningful for you.
