Hi guys,

Here is a Headshot style portrait (portrait but headshot you know) I photographed presently in the studio. Would like to hear what are your thoughts on the look and style of the image.

Looks like a "corporate" type headshot. It is well lit, looks good.

Yes a "corporate" style of image great for reproduction in a magazine or corporate news release. Her expression is wonderful, and the white balance and exposure are spot on. Portrait wise it is so so. When you pose a woman straight on to the camera it makes her upper body look wide and wide equates to heavy. I have never met a woman that wants to look even one ounce heavier than what she really is! The image is flat lit making her face look wide. A shadow on the side of the face closest to the camera will slenderize the face. The highlight on her left cheek is distracting and there is no hair light. Lastly her teeth look gray. This usually indicates that you didn't use a fill light (and I don't see a catchlight in her eyes indicating one either.)
