We all know how important a bio picture is to a blog as they help your readers instantly connect with you. I can’t tell you how many times I toss out a perfectly well executed photo of myself because of the way I angled head. I am too young to be producing a double chin, yet somehow I make it appear in a lot of my photos. Out of fifty-plus photos taken of me during a shoot, there may only be five that I actually like.
It wasn't until I watched a video from photographer Peter Hurley explain and show examples of how properly positioning your chin and forehead can make a huge difference in your photos. Watching the video has made me more aware of my body positioning and how simple adjustments to your forehead and chin can make drastic improvements to your head shots!
It’s a long video (15 minutes) but worth watching at least once! If you don’t have 15 minutes to spare, step ahead to the 4 minute mark to watch him coach a model, and the 6:50 mark to see more examples.
