1. Some of these seem out of focus
2. @goldfish needs to mostly shoot in portrait. Think he could get a little closer to you at times too
3. Not keen on the shoes in the first outfit. Chuck Taylors or Old Skools would be my shout for that one
4. Need to work on posing, closest you are to getting it right are 1, 3, 8 and 13 id say
5. the clothes are oddly adjusted in some of them. the clasp for the pendant is showing in a few and your shirt rides up in 7 for example so make sure to readjust everything before the photographer starts taking shots

I think the best are 8 & 3

I agree. The shoes in 3 took away from a decent outfit. the white shoes in the other photos would've worked better.

What other shoes have you got?
#1 Goal - Complete the AA program (31st December 2021)

#2 Goal - Move out of my parents house (31st December 2021)

#3 Goal - Bulk up to 84kg (31st December 2022)

Picture 8 is definitely the best IMO; it's the confident look you have in your eyes above anything else.

All the others your face appears either too serious, uncertain, or upset.

3 & 10 I'm unsure on.
My goals (next 4 years):
- fix the poor approach-to-date ratio
- get into a relationship (done, in one from March 2021)
- move to a detached house
- Find a way of perma-reducing anxiety when I'm out.

8 - 10 - 11 would be my favorite of the lot. Though I'm not confident 11 portrays the right vibe for OLD.

I don't know if you look good shirtless, but if you do don't hesitate to include shirtless pics in your tinder. To this day my most effective pic for finding one night stands online is a shirtless one.
  • Goals:
    • 1 cold approach lay
    • 5 approaches in 1 day
    • 10 approaches in 1 day

I think you should do a reshoot of the first photos. The place looks nice and all. If you want inspiration for the pose, I took a similar photo(viewtopic.php?f=5&t=697)

8 - 13 I think you are shrugging a bit, but looks cool nonetheless.
Great effort
Primary goals till the end of the year:
Laycount of 3 (4)
Approach a girl a week
Lay from approaching
Get to a lean 65kg (61)
Finish a side project

Wow this got way more feedback than I thought.

@HyperR thanks dude. Goldfish were trying to mimic one of your pics. I knew it was KYIL guy just didn't know who. Your pics look solid.


@MakingAComeback Effort is decent, just need to keep dialing it in. Or "grinding" lol.


@Reservoir thanks. I appreciate your feedback. Ya shirtless pics are ideal, I have almost zero muscle definition on my abdomen/chest so I need to hardcore diet. Ya dude your shirtless pics are solid AF. I think you set a pretty good standard for shirtless profile pics.


@Adam Radicals guide is like a cheat. Saved me so much time.


@drz seems like everyone likes 8. It was actually a random pic. I have a lot of work to do still on posing. I think I look best when I'm actually not trying to do anything with my face.


@TimmyTurner I have white shoes. Pretty much only use them for pictures. We had a walk a dusty trail for to get those pics so I just put on my ugly shoes. Ill just crop them out for that.


@Radical thanks for the feedback man. As always it's solid and pointing out things I didn't think about.

I'll pay more attention to adjusting clothes before pics are taken. Still very new to this. Like everything else I just need to do this a 100 times before I get competent at it.

I'll probably just shoot more pics. Specifically need a (1) pet shot, (2) hobby shot, (3) shot with friends.

2nd round of photos




FEEDBACK NEEDED




I think these are really solid. But I'm also an online dating noob. So any feedback or suggestions is greatly appreciated.

Be honest. Be brutally honest. I'd rather hear truth over niceties.

Credit:
@goldfish & @honeybadger for these.

these are much better

1 is really good. i’d maybe edit your nose a bit to make it less red

2 is also good, esp with the faceapp charm edit
BA29BA1A-4292-4965-BB96-13A0A41ADD53.jpeg
i know this forum hates smiling, but it looks pretty natural. unfortunately you can’t use it in the same stack at 1.

i don’t think 3 adds anything. it’s pretty clear you’re wearing the same jacket and are in the same place as 1

4 isn’t anything special but id use it for now. shows good full body style and the background is cool/different

5 is really tense awkward body language with you sucking in your stomach or whatever, makes me uncomfortable

6 your smile is kinda awkward, weak body language with you hugging yourself and you’re with 1 blur. doesn’t really count as a social photo

7 i would also use for now but would be a lot better with a real background, looks a little unnatural
