If any of you out there want a good guide for posing Headshots take a look at the just released photos of the Miss America 2011 Contestants. I am not familiar with Matt Petit but he must be good to have earned the opportunity of photographing some of the most beautiful women in the U. S.

Here's the link and enjoy!

Very nicely done...good variety too. I also noticed that there's a lot of cut off on the heads. So I guess this is not a 'failure' as I've been told in the past? More disconcerting is that they all look to have had 'smoothing' done. At least they don't look 'plastic' but I can't believe that they all have faultless skin.

I agree about the cut off heads but who is going to tell the photographer that he doesn't know what he is doing? I have always looked at rules as guidelines to show me where the boundaries are and as they say they are meant to be broken.

I did notice the smoothing effects and am glad that it was not overdone but this is Miss America the epitome of female "perfection". Would you expect anything else?

I crop tight on many sessions. The only problem is always having to explain to some senior mom or even the senior, that it was not a mistake.




As far as smooth skin.... Who do yo think keeps the makeup companies in business?

I'm surprised by the number that were broad lit and Ms Texas didn't get the main light in her eyes at all. You can see how dark her eyes got compared to the others. Also, Ms. Arizona was turned a little too much and her eye sort of blends with the background and the kicker lights her upper lip---looks kind of weird.
