    All this talk about what's bad about profile pics...let's see who can fit the most annoying things in a profile pic. This ought to give a few people around here cause to run to therapy.

    I just took mine yesterday! Based on what I've read recently in the forums, here's where I fail (or earn points for the purposes of this thread). icon_biggrin.gif

    1) It's a self pic in a mirror.
    2) There's crap on the floor behind me.
    3) I'm wearing *gasp* flip-flops.
    4) The pic could be more clear.

    Now that I think about it, I left a lot of easy points out there just by not being in the bathroom (mirror splatter, toilet, TP, turds) and keeping my head attached. There's always next time.

    1. Self-in-mirror pics are one of my specialties.
    2. As a pro photographer, I always check the background before snapping the shutter...and fix it in Photoshop if needed.
    3. I'm usually nude - even for cropped body shots - so that's not an issue.
    4. Non-issue with $1000's worth of equipment.

    • there are bars on the bedroom window behind you
    • adult pleasure items (dildo etc) in the background
    • food stuck in your teeth
    • wearing dirty/stained clothes

    1. Not nude
    2. Skinny bod
    3. Raggedy old beach towel
    4. Yellow dot over face (I do federal contracts with IBM for UD DoD, so have to "fly under the radar.")

    BUT I do have nude pics, including one in front of the same sign; Playalinda Beach at Canaveral National Seashore, Titusville, FL.

    Good point. That stuff should be in the foreground.

    Pose nude. Problem solved.

    Changed mine last night.

    Bathroom mirror, check.
    crooked half hazy picture, check
    The adult toys are behind the mirror.. so you'll have to use your imagination.

    Just because you have expensive equipment doesn't make your photos good or less annoying.
