USEFUL HEADSHOT TIPS

#7 WORK WITH YOUR BEST SIDE

Do you have a preferred side?

Maybe you always part your hair to one side?

In my headshot sessions, I will always work with you to determine which is your best side. It’s important to establish this at the beginning of the shoot as it will allow me to adjust my lighting to better emphasise your stronger side.

It may seem an unusual fact, but the majority of human faces lack complete symmetry. Did you know that sixty percent of people are stronger on the left side of their face?

A study by Dr James Schirillo at Wake Forest University determined that the left side of the face is more attractive than the right! The results suggested that the left side had a tendency to exhibit greater emotion than the right.

Most people have one eye that is smaller than the other or a stronger jaw-line on one side.

Most of you will look better on your left side, some of you on your right side and occasionally straight on will be your best angle.

So whichever it is, let’s work on finding your best side.

I will figure out which side of your face is the strongest, but if you already know which is your best side, then you by all means let your headshot photographer know at the beginning of your session.

I’m guessing that you’re heading to the mirror now to scrutinise your face, sorry about that!
