I want to ask another question with regards to Headshots.

I am shooting with a Canon EOS 10D and my primary portrait lenses is the Canon USM 28 - 105 F3.5 - 4.5 (it's all I can afford for now so give me a break guys )

I have found from experience that when I shoot at full res mode (6 megapixels) I have to frame my model so I get from the lower portion of her breasts to just a little above the top of her head. When I crop the image to 8 x 10" in Photoshop I get a "classic" headshot which shows the model's head from her collar bones to the top of her head.

Am I right in my thinking here? Can anyone else share their methodologies with me for getting Headshots. This is what I have learned from a lot of trial and error but I am certainly open to other options.

Thanks

That is pretty much right...I often use the focus boxes to help me see about where the image will be cropped for an 8x10.

I bet you can also afford the 50mm 1.8...it is really inexpensive, but I use it about 80% of the time...it is awesome!

The Canon, (and Nikon) shoot in a similar aspect ratio as 35mm film. In other words if you print the full frame you will get a 8x12, so yes you need to leave some room to crop when shooting for 8x10's
