Myths and Bad Advice
1 – It should be a white background – only. Chose a cinematic background ( everything is out of focus ), grey, white or black if you want. Consider where else your headshot will be used such as your website and business cards and pick a backdrop that matches your design.
2 – LinkedIn headshot should have you smiling or just a picture of your head. Consult with your professional photographer and be authentic, don’t restrict opportunities prior to shooting, let the journey during a session dictate the final product.
3 – Use a speciffic camera, only! The camera has nothing to do with the final result for a great LinkedIn image… A LinkedIn headshot file size is a little bigger than a thumbnail size. Go with a professional who know how to capture your essence and don’t worry about his equipment, he can use an iPhone, medium format or polaroid equipment doesn’t matter.
