If you are super attractive, with perfect skin, it doesn’t matter – you’ll look good no matter what you do.
But, if you’re like the rest of us, take the picture in soft light (not direct sunlight or flash). Try to use light that is bouncing off a white wall. If you want a “slimming” effect, turn slightly so that the lit side of your face is slightly away from the camera. Have the photo taken using the most telephoto setting you can manage and try to position yourself below the level of the camera lens (so it’s looking down and you’re looking up). Backgrounds are a matter of taste, but in general, the simpler the better – not too light, or dark. Good luck!
