    Hi Kim,

    I think the shadows here are no problem, the photo has a bit of dramatic lighting to it but that could be exactly what the client is going for sometimes. The important thing is to communicate with the client, and review the shots while shooting even, to ensure that they get the right “look”. Of course knowing how to deliver any look is a skill too, but it sounds like you’d know how to adjust this lighting to change it if you wanted to next time.

    Everything about it is pretty solid overall, however it does appear to be a touch out of focus. Totally usable for web presentation, with a bit of sharpening, but I wouldn’t print it any larger than a few inches tall if it were going into a published newsletter or advertisement. (which headshots usually never area, so you’re good haha.)
