Hinge profile tips – for no matches on Hinge

To setup a good Hinge account we need some decent photo’s. Let’s start off with out main profile picture!

Grab your iPhone or camera and have it ready when you are going out on an activity.

To draw attention to the subject we suggest using an iPhone or DSLR with a wide aperture. However, these days, iPhone cameras will definitely get the job done and they even come with a background blurring option!

This way the focus is on you and not the background. This can also be done with an editor like Photoshop but is slightly more time consuming to make it look more professional.
