In the age of selfies, bad photography runs rampant. Duck lips, bathroom pictures, too close close ups -- the list of photography faux pas is seemingly endless.

A poorly angled selfie or two (or 100) might not be so bad on Facebook. But put those same pictures on LinkedIn, and watch your connection accept rate take a nosedive.
