We are living in a visual world of airbrushing pictures and using filters in videos and pictures.
My profile picture on my website was taken over 10 years ago. Age has taken its toll. I have wrinkles, less elastic skin not so perfect teeth colour. I am thinking of updating the pictures to reflect my age.
From Apple's App store on one of its Airbrushing apps:
"Remove pimples, smooth wrinkles, even out skin tone, whiten teeth, and more to get the perfect photo every time."
In other words, made up picture-perfect person is not the real person as people would see.
When I met some clients I was surprised to see the real person as compared to their picture. I think they were equally surprised to see an older person than what my profile picture portrayed.
I am looking into refreshing my website. It is important to get small details right.
On your website is your picture Airbrushed? Does it reflect your current age or near enough?
Is the trend airbrushing now? I do not know what the trend is now. Is Airbrushing profile picture acceptable for professionals?
