Self-shot Pictures Are Fine
If you do not feel like asking your friends to take your picture, it is just fine to take your own picture. Just make sure you are paying attention to what is going on in the picture. If you are using your bathroom, straighten it up a little bit. She will not mind seeing your toothbrush in the foreground, but she will get grossed out if there’s toothpaste spit all over the mirror or dirty towels visible on the floor. Take the time to clean up or move the picture to a new venue.
One of the best pieces of advice when taking a self-shot pic is to take it from an angle. Whether you are taking the picture from on high or on your side, it will present you in a different way than most of the other guys. The standard pic is taken straight on in a mirror with the camera showing. If you hold your camera up high and smile at it, she will instantly know that you are different from the rest.
Use a Decent Camera
Not all cell phone cameras are that great. Check your camera to see how the quality is before taking a picture with it. If your cell phone takes grainy photos, you may want to get a disposable camera or borrow someone else’s camera to take the picture with. You need to be seen in your pic, so taking a grainy photo where you cannot be seen is not an option. You do not need a stunning HD quality picture, but it is imperative that she can at least see your facial features.
Wear Some Clothes
You are proud of your abs, your shoulders, your chest or some other part of your body you normally have covered up. It is good you are proud of your body and if you follow this advice, she will see a lot of what you are proud of. However, if you take a picture of yourself being half naked, or heaven forbid completely naked, she will never contact you. Be tasteful when you are taking your pic and dress to impress. Let her see you at your best and she may want to see more of you. The absolute last thing you want to do is to make your profile pic a dick pic. She will be instantly turned off and will not ever get in touch with you.
