Another headshot from the same session. Open to general comments. I kept it wide and did not crop it down to 1x1 as I did the other one.... (show more)

    I think it’s a good idea to shoot at least some shots that have a wider crop, and then shoot some that are a bit tighter. Or, if you know the intended use of the client, and/or if you have a decent number of megapixels, then you can indeed just shoot wide like this, or maybe even a touch wider, …and then just crop later for the desired framing. So yes, I would at least offer multiple crops to the client, say maybe a horizontal, a vertical, and a square, but I would only do it for the 2-3 shots that they picked as their favorites, I wouldn’t do it for every single shot.

    Hi Bridiget, great photo even lighting  and good sharp focus. The only thing that seams to keep standing out in this picture that I would suggest a tweaking is in regards to the angle of him in relation to your camera,  the horizontal lines of the boards are exaggerating the  lack of symmetry along the top of his head . Not sure if it’s his hair line or hair cut or exactly why it it is .  Regardless  of the cause one way to correct this would be to have his right side be the closer thing to the camera  because things further away will appear smaller. Not suggesting a profile shot but simply a bit of an angle to the camera. Also one trick I have been using , is to have your client give a slight exaggerated push toward you with their head and following with the chin almost in a turtle like movement and adjust in or out accordingly to achieve something that is a good solid neck line for that individual. It might feel weird but it will make them look awesome and eliminate the double chin and help define the jaw. Good luck hope this helps
