Headshot tests.

Recently got interested in the headshot photography world, and invited some friends to do some tests. Hope to improve and share next shots. Regards.

Like these. Top one the best. To me the bottom one, the eyes seem to be a little bit off, looking too much to the left. Would have liked to see them more centered. MHP.

Hi Lee, Thank you for your comment. I will try some with a little less head turn. That´s a good tip. Thanks.

The head turn is fine. it's he eyes that need some correction. It's like he is trying to keep his head in one direction while looking a totally different way with his eyes.

I agree with Lee. Also the lower one seems to be losing some details in his cheeks and forehead. I’m on my phone so it hard to see, but I can see detail in the top photo through out.

Hi Pamela, in fact i might over exaggerated a bit in skin softness. After a wile, i also started to think the same. Thank you for your comment.

These are wonderful portraits. As an actor/director/ photographer for many years I just wanted to chime in and make the distinction between a headshot and a portrait. You’ve done a beautiful job of dramatically lighting these guys and conveying a mood. In headshot photography, agents will look these days for color, mostly natural light images. They’ll want to see hair color, eye color etc... and a clear no nonsense but professionally done image. I totally love Jordan Matter - his style is impeccable. Have a look at his stuff. And I don’t mean to be a troll with you at all. This is beautiful work.
