After a year or so with the same bloggie profile picture, I decided to switch things up and change it. Luckily, I have a son that knows the little details on the technical side of switching my picture, so all I had to do was take the picture! Well, that proved to be interesting and I learned a TON in the process.
May I present to you, the WRONG way to take a profile picture….
#1 Make sure you have distracting, personal items in the background- like a tv with Dr. Phil, or a laptop screen with emails!
#2 Make sure only 1/2 of your face makes it into the shot, and forget to blend your eyeshadow…yeah, that’s a must!
#3 Always take a picture from below, so that you can show off your 3 double chins.
#4 Find bright lighting that emphasizes every. stinkin’. wrinkle. And make sure the owl isn’t centered, so it actually looks like it’s pecking your cheek.
#5. Make sure you look very serious, because this blog stuff is serious business.
#6 Unless you like the look of a white arm in every picture, ask another person to take the photo. (Thank you, Sweet Pea, for taking this picture!!!) Now, CROP the heck out it!! No need to see the other french door, or shadows or even my pointy elbow.
Seriously, just have FUN with it!!
Now, scroll up and appreciate the masterpiece that I made….It TOOK ALL DAY to get it right!
hahaha! you look great! Love you new profile pic!
I have no pics of myself on my blog… Probably not a good idea- but I have pics of the kids and animals. Much better looking!! hehehe…..
Love the process and thank God we have photoshop apps now!!
