So.. who takes your picture?

Yes, the advent of the digital camera has done wonders for AdultFriendFinder profiles, but some people don't have pictures posted and some seem to have scanned in their family photos and manipulated them to cut out other family members. Others seem to favor webcam captures and some have pretty professional looking photos.

Where did your pictures come from and why did you choose those for your profile?

For me.. I have a digital camera, it's got a timer so I set myself up an area with a backdrop and took a bunch of pictures till I got a few that I actually liked well enough to post.

I like photography so I occasionally think of offering my services, but I haven't come up with a way to do that without making it sound too critical of the pictures they have.

And of course some people just prefer not to post pictures at all for privacy reasons.

Personally, I am more likely to view a profile if there's a picture there that draws me in. I can be drawn in by an intriging headline or user name but that's no where near as often as a picture will draw me in.

How about you? Do you find you're more likely to check out a profile that has a picture?

I too used my webcam to take my photos, and took a lot of them until I got the photos I wanted to post. I very much dislike having my photo taken and it took a long time but I came up with a few for my profile.

I do prefer profiles with photos, especially faces. The idea of hiding faces here seems silly, since everyone here is looking for the same thing and the concern that "someone" may see it is ridiculous. My view is that they are here for the same reason each one of us is. To find someone to have fun with. If there is no photo I may look but I have to wonder why you are hiding..

I definitely agree when it comes to faces. Yes I'm a stereotypical male in the sense that breasts are gonna grab my attention if a lady decides to post pictures of them, but I'm a lot more likely to actually display some interest beyond a drooling stare at the screen if she's actually got a picture of her face.

I have taken all my photos on my profile with my web cam - I think lol haven't checked lately to see which ones I actually have up.
I'm vain. If I have my web cam on and I'm talking to someone and I glance and happen to notice I look particularly good I turn off the web cam and open it up to take a snapshot

I, too, prefer a profile with a face shot. I rarely look at one without a picture of some sort. Cock shots do nothing for me. Some make me giggle, some make me say ewww but that's about it.
