OK, not all of my business photos have turned out as sketchy as the one above. (Trust me though – I’ve had some close runner-ups.)
In any case, I ran across some excellent photo tips in Christopher Knight of EzineArticle.com’s blog post on how to take a great business photo.
It’s a short article, but he tells you which direction you should face for a Western audience (something I’d never even considered), and explains exactly how to look at the camera in order to ‘grab’ the viewer.
So enjoy! (Just click on the hyperlink above to go straight to the article.)
