Sarcastic Saturday – Your Headshot: Really?
Standart Post with Picture Sample.
“I know I’ve written about this before, but this past week I was on more websites than usual and I was blown away by what many of you consider acceptable for your headshot on your about page.
Think about it for just a second. You’re telling people you’re a professional photographer. You’re hopefully showing terrific work in your galleries, (another pet peeve when the work is mediocre), but your headshot is horrible!
Why would you think a grab-shot selfie was acceptable? I saw one headshot after another with Uncle Harry’s signature all over each one!
Personally, I like a collage of three images for your about page. Make the primary image one of you working. Have a camera in your hand and pose the shot with a client. It’s you photographing a subject with the camera in your hand, looking through the viewfinder and taken off your right shoulder slightly behind you. In the back ground will be your subject slightly out of focus.“ http://www.skipcohenuniversity.com/scu-blog
