If you are not sure, maybe you should try again...
this time try relaxing, letting go... and open both your hands, palms upwards
towards the photo with an attitude of expectancy
as if you are about to receive something... perhaps your inner awakening
(It just may help... if you remove your shoes)
& then whilst looking gently at the photo (not staring & with no concentration)
simply ask for your Moksha... or the knowledge of your real Self... or
for your Self Realisation
