Tips for a great personal photo
It’s important to find a quality photo like the one’s shown below. If you don’t currently have one, take your own using the tips below. Or consult a photographer and have a professional portrait taken.
Lighting: Use soft lighting from the front and side
Background: Use neutral backgrounds to keep the focus on you. Light or medium-toned tan or gray. Black is also a great option.
Expression: Gentle, relaxed smile. Eye contact to the camera.
Cropping: Traditional headshot or from the chest up. Keep your crop loose and casual, not too tight.
