Dating expert reveals how to take the best photo to get them swiping right



Dating apps whether you’re just looking for a shag or the person you want to spend the rest of your life with are incredibly daunting.

From creating a witty yet efficient bio to looking utterly shaggable, friendly and natural in your photos it’s all very disheartening.

We worry about looking like a catfish, our angles or what pics to choose. But luckily Francesca Marotti, dating and relationship expert at the newest dating app Pickable, provides insight into how taking the best photograph can lead you to more success while swiping.

She suggests…

Get someone else to take it
Taking your own selfie, however easy, distorts your face and not always in a good way. Avoid this by getting a trusted friend or colleague to take it for you.

Focus on your background
Try a plain background to ensure that you are the centre of attention. Those light fittings or brightly coloured wallpaper behind your head distract from what should be the main focus of the photograph – you!

Define your jawline
Move your head forward and down a little - let that jawline jut. This pose flatters all face shapes and really helps to accentuate the jawline. 



Face a little to the left
Rather than standing facing the camera, face a little to the left. Research shows that people prefer the left side of the face to the right. 

Let’s see your eyes
Hiding behind sunglasses or hair does not exude confidence – instead it suggests someone who is timid or trying to hide something. 

No flash
Direct artificial light is horrible and can make you look pasty and washed out. Instead of using your camera flash go au naturel and make the most of that golden hour of sunlight. 

Smile
It really works! We’re naturally attracted to people who look like they are happy and having a good time. Smiling also makes you appear more approachable which can only be a good thing. 


Pickable is free to download and is available on both IOS and Android.
