Dating photos – before and after: Colin
Following my interview with Nottingham Post in September a lovey guy called Colin got in touch to speak to me about a dating photo shoot.
He only needed a few photos to get him started so he opted for my small photo shoot package which lasted around 30 minutes. We met at Wollaton Park and had a lovely time wandering around and exchanging dating stories while I captured some natural shots.
Selecting Colin's photos
Before the photo shoot
Your main profile photo should always be of you and you only. By all means, use photos of you with other people within your profile – you should have a balance. But the reason to invest in eye-catching dating photos in the first place is to get people’s attention to view your profile. If your main image doesn’t stand out, potential partners may not go any further – missing many opportunities for chats and dates!
In summary, the first photo is a little cluttered, has too many people (and a baby) in it and the photo is generally quite flat in terms of colour and contrast.
His second photo, again, is very cluttered and has a lot of people in it – I love Colin’s shirt in this one though! Just with a few minor tweaks (not filters) this photo could be so much brighter and clearer.
After the photo shoot
A huge thank you to Colin for sharing his pre-photo-shoot dating photos. The difference is just incredible!
I had a really great shoot with him and I think he’s going to knock ’em dead – watch out ladies!
