Here is a headshot that I did for a MUA last weekend. I would love to get your feedback. It's not a traditional type of headshot (senior portrait look) but I really like the shot (I think it's one of my personal bests). I would like your feedback on any aspect of the image but I am especially interested in the cropping and composition. I was trying to go for a look like a makeup print ad. The model had perfect skin so I wanted to take advantage of it. I know that I have some hot spots but it was impossible to control them with the equipment that I had brought to the location. There are also slightly dark areas under her eyes that are intensified by the resizing - these are not apparent in the full size image.
Here's the setup:
Mostly cloudy sky (around noon) with white foamcore reflector directed to the right of the models face about chest high.
Canon 300D in AE mode, 70-200 f4 lens at f4, ISO 100
The image is completely unretouched except for resizing and slight crop off of the bottom of the picture to make a 9 x 12 print.
Thanks in advance for your feedback.
