One of our first concerns that comes to a head when we don't know how to make a CV is what kind of photo to include. We're not going to go into the debate of whether having a photo on the CV is a good or bad thing, we all know that employers should choose us for our qualities and skills. In fact, there are countries where it is even illegal to include them. However, a CV photo is still needed in Spain, you have a lot more chance of being chosen over someone who doesn't include one. Admit it, whether we like it or not, first impressions are very important. When we are choosing what film to watch on Netflix, the first thing we do is look at the film cover, and once one has caught our eye, we then read the description and hit play.

Be careful with the background. Outside of a studio, it is more difficult to find smooth and well-lit surfaces that we can use as a background. If this is your case and you have to use a different background, the fewer things in it that take the attention away from you, the better. And if there are things there, make sure they are clean and tidy. Also, try to make sure it is out of focus so that the photo is centred on you as much as possible. If, on the other hand, you find a clear background, make sure to wear suitable coloured clothing, so that you don't stand out too much from the contrast between colours, or that you don't blend into the background.
