Don’t have an exaggerated pose
The best headshots are from natural-looking and simple poses with clean lines. So having a pose that feels unnatural is not going to aid the final result.
I usually shoot head on first which means that the head and shoulders are directly towards the camera and then I’ll ask my subject to move around 5 degrees to one side or the other.
There you have it, tip no 1 to help you, the paying customer, get the best out of your headshot shoot.
