Tips for Perfect Teacher Photos
- Frame yourself correctly. Your face should not be too close, not too far away.
- Try to have symmetry in your photo. Keeping the face in the center ensures better visibility.
- Smile photos attract more attention and intuitively make you look friendlier.
- Click on the photo in good lighting and don’t apply too many filters.
- Pay attention to your body language. Your facial expression, arms and hands express an opening to connection or a reserved nature.
- Using contrasting colors on your profile photo (as opposed to social media colors) will make you more visible.
- Make sure your bottom is not too crowded. It should be clear and simple to keep the focus on your face.
- Do not use group photos as profile photos. It can confuse new connections.
- Add your personal brand to the photo by using elements around your work or business, such as a camera if you’re a photographer, and so on.
- Use the same profile picture on all social media to make it easier for people to connect with you.
