    Hi Bridget, thanks for submitting this image! I think it’s a great professional headshot, I like the overall exposure, lighting, color, and the expression is very friendly but professional. I also like the square crop.

    For exporting from Lightroom, it all depends what the image is going to be used for. For print, or for web?

    Hi Matt, thanks so much for the critique, it helps me out a lot. In this particular case, it will be used on the company’s website. Which LR Export settings would you recommend – specifically, number of pixels for the long edge and output sharpening – low, med, or high (for screen)? Thanks again :-)

      It’s hard to say for sure about the exact resolution, because it depends a little bit on how their web designer will be doing the final re-sizing and sharpening,  but generally speaking if it’s going to just be a small bio photo on a website, you really don’t need an image any larger than 1000-2000 pixels on the long end, and yeah, I’d use “screen” sharpening set to high.
