A powerful photo shows personality, comfort and confidence.
With these 5 tips, you’ll be well on your way to achieving all 3.
1 – Be deliberate.
Although most great photos convey an air of spontaneity, it’s important to schedule a photo session and think critically about photo logistics. Make sure you plan your shoot when you can get great light. If you want your photo outside, consider taking a photo in the early morning hours around sunrise and at the magical hour before sunset. Besides timing, you’ll also want to determine how you want your face framed. For your about.me page, a horizontal photo works best with your face off-center.
