G! A good way to clean up double chins is to have the subject lean forward at the waist, raise the head and then raise the height of the camera to accommodate the mask of the face. Another method is to use the hand to hide the chin/jaw line and. or use a lower-key ratio and leave the offending area in shadow.

I use to shoot that way, but the lean in the photo to me looks like they are falling. I do a lean towards the camera, forehead towards camera and chin down.

Just a suggestion. Each photographer has their own approach!

Being someone who also does tons of headshots (did 400 in two days last week!) I'd say you did a great job. My only comment would be the use of a silver reflector below. I sometimes use a bottom fill reflector but I use a white one not silver. Those specular highlights in their eyes from the silver fill just bothers me a little. The first place our eye always goes is to the eyes and when I do, I go right to those bright bottom fill reflections.

BUT, I am not the client. If THEY are pleased...

I know Peter is big on cutting into the top of the head. My opinion for execs? Don't. To me there is a difference in an executive headshot and an actor's/model's headshot. Again, that's just me. But I cover a lot of corporate events and rarely see a headshot of an award winner with the top of his head cropped off. It's usually more typical portrait like.

While I really like these images, I REALLY don't like cutting off the tops of heads. Otherwise these are excellent, IMHO.

Pretty good. Not sure if this was the final crop for the client or just for the posting here. However, I am hesitant about the tight crop above their head.

Good clear photos, but why crop the tops of their heads in almost all images?

Cheers

With the large U shaped reflector, is that how you got the "under light", Im guessing?

Well done..

Nice shots. Question, Do you crop the tops of the final pictures as in some of these?
