The most successful online dating photos are planned around your interests and then well thought-out with someone who is familiar with what it takes to looks good on camera. What a great opportunity to see yourself in a new light. I love to work with people who are uncomfortable in front of the camera. I will do everything I can to make your session easy and fun.
Online dating photos that are done by a professional photographer are guaranteed to get you noticed because they feature your face with a great expression, relaxed posing and appropriate lighting. The creative process for me begins with finding out about your interests, and then with that information, we move on to clothing and background selection. I will help you decide what to wear for each idea or interest that we come up with. The results of all our hard work sends a message of who you are and why you are unique. You should plan or at least four or five different images.
Victor brought clothing based on my recommendations and his interests. The outfits meant something to him and showed his personality. As we worked together we picked outfits based on what looked good in the camera. Keep in mind your portrait should feature your face. A pop of color in the clothing near your face will draw the viewer’s eye right to your face. The background shouldn’t be too bright or an off color that doesn’t go with your clothing. A color that blends will not distract the person who is looking at the photo. Also the clothing has to fit well and go with the pose to send the right message. All the women who call me want to know if he is still available! You can see how much fun we had with this session
WOW!, that was really not what I expected. I not only felt comfortable having you take pictures of me, but was instantly convinced this was the right way to go.” Victor Goodman Silver Spring Maryland
As we plan and work you will become comfortable. I will help every step of the way. With the planning out of the way, we’ll go into the photography session. We will experiment with poses and expressions. We will create images that are close up, three-quarter body and full body. As I take photos I will show you each pose with the outfit we have chosen. If we like the look then we’ll take lots of images concentrating on getting you to relax and have fun. As this progresses I will show you the results of how you pose or how an expression is working for you. For example, if you chin is up or down or how you look better sitting a little straighter. I have several ways of making sure you look relaxed and vibrant in your portrait–so don’t worry!
In addition to great photography we want to make sure we are capturing your personality. Your look is important but who you are is why someone is attracted to you. The best way to show personality is to do something interesting, show your sense of humor.
Victor called me and said he hated being in photos but really needed something for online dating photos. The most fun for me was when after I took one image he said, “I knew I picked the right photographer!”.
After we are done the session, I will choose all the best images and create an online gallery for you to make your selections. I am very skilled at retouching and include this service for everyone. You will still be you! I will deliver electronic images by email.
