Headshots are a type of portrait, but portraits are not necessarily headshots. Here’s what’s different.

Headshots are a sub section of portraits. With a headshot the focus of the image is the face and a good headshot maintains the focus there. This isn’t always the case with a portrait. With portraits there is a more general focus to create a mood and atmosphere for the image.

In a great headshot the subject has eye contact with the camera/viewer. The cropping is tighter to maintain the focus on the face. The subject’s personality should come through in a headshot, conveyed by their facial expression. For a headshot to connect with the viewer, the expression must be genuine and not forced. A great headshot exudes confidence, approachability and even a sense of fun.
