Smile Size.

Use small smiles when you are in front of the camera. Fake smiles are the worst thing you can do when you are in front of the camera. When someone says “smile” and you smile, it isn’t natural, real, or sincere. People can tell when you are being fake, and that is a quick way to ruin a first impression. So use a small smile! it can be a smirk or just a slight raising of the corners of your mouth towards space. Either way, it conveys approachability, the idea that you can relate to the person looking at the picture on a personal level.
