Do we Retouch & Edit Our photography?

Absolutely, the answer is a resounding YES. However, the depth of our retouching is tailored to the subject and the purpose of the images. For dating profile images, we suggest only a light retouch. The reason being, it’s essential for your online representation to closely mirror your real-life appearance, ensuring genuine connections and interactions. During the editing process, our aim is to present you at your refreshed best, subtly enhancing features to give the impression of a well-rested and hydrated you.

Our suite of retouching services encompasses fixing stray hairs, diminishing eye bags, erasing temporary blemishes, acne, or scars, brightening teeth, accentuating eyes, and refining skin texture. Minor skin retouching, natural tone adjustments, and color corrections are standard practices for all our images. As a guiding principle, if a blemish or imperfection is temporary and wouldn’t be visible in six months, we address it during our meticulous final edit.

Our overarching goal is to delight our clients while preserving the genuine essence and unique character in our portraits. While we occasionally encounter requests for unedited images, our commitment to excellence and consistency means we exclusively provide our clients with refined, edited work.

what makes a bad dating profile image?

A dating profile photograph serves as a first impression in the digital realm of romance, and while beauty is subjective, there are certain elements that can universally detract from the effectiveness of such an image. 

Here’s what typically constitutes a bad dating profile photograph:

Poor Lighting: One of the most common culprits, poor lighting can cast unflattering shadows, create glare, or make the image too dark or washed out. Good lighting accentuates features and sets the mood.

Low Resolution: Blurry or pixelated images can give the impression of carelessness or a lack of authenticity.

Distracting Backgrounds: An overly busy or messy background can divert attention away from the main subject. It’s essential that the focus remains on the individual.

Outdated Photos: Using old photos where one looks significantly different can set false expectations and lead to trust issues when meeting in person.

Overly Edited/Filtered: While some touch-ups can enhance a photo, excessive use of filters or editing can make it look unnatural and misleading.

Inauthentic Expressions: Forced or insincere smiles, or poses that don’t resonate with one’s true personality, can come off as disingenuous.

Inappropriate Content: Images that are too provocative, showcase excessive partying, or include other people (leading to confusion about who the profile belongs to) can send the wrong message.

Lack of Variety: Using multiple photos that look almost identical or don’t showcase different facets of one’s personality and life can be a missed opportunity.

Poor Framing: Cutting off parts of the face or body, or being too far away to be recognizable, can detract from the image’s effectiveness.

Misleading Angles: While it’s okay to want to look one’s best, using angles that drastically alter one’s appearance can be misleading.

In essence, a good dating profile photograph should be a clear, recent, and genuine representation of the individual, capturing their personality and making a positive first impression.
