"She isn't wearing makeup here, which I think is better.
It may seem informal, but there's no use in hiding behind only fancy photos," Hoehn said.
Hoehn upgraded Mary Beth, an OKCupid dater, from one, far-away shot to three beautiful photos that better demonstrate who she is as a person.
In the first of the three new photos, Hoehn's cropping brings the focus to Mary Beth's face and away from the cars and sunset in the background.
"The first main photo is a window into your profile," Hoehn said.
"Someone scrolling through the site is obviously going to pick the woman they can see more clearly." "Even if it is online, you're more likely to feel engaged with someone if they're looking right at you," Hoehn said.
If you plan to crop the photo, of course, then sitting is fine.
Also, consider posting some shots of you in action — kayaking, biking, playing tennis, etc.5. It's been said the eyes are the window to the soul, which is why you shouldn't hide behind your shades.
"If a photo is too small, but you feel it's one you want to use, don't be afraid to add a border to make it work.
There are lots of free photo-editing sites you can use." And in the third, Hoehn chose a photo where Mary Beth looks obviously confident and happy.
I would definitely, highly recommend getting new photos from Online Profile Pros! Soon after the photo shoot I sent the photographer an email saying that the women online reacted favorably to my photos.
