Advice on taking portrait for social media avatar

  • Try to fill the frame – Remember the avatar will most likely be displayed very small, especially on Twitter where it is very hard to see details.
  • Use a neutral, out of focus or high contrast background.
  • Use light to your advantage by standing next to a window
  • Try different angles and expressions.
  • Keep it simple, don’t try to include to much in the frame
