Visual drawbacks


Active background

Choose a plain, one-color, calm background


“Too much acting” face.


Overly emotional facial expression. Can’t see the face (shadow). The size of the head is too small for the main photo. Bright clothes with prints.


Active background

Can see the face (melts into the active background). Too much photoshop (vignette, too dark). Active color filter misrepresents reality.


Facial expression

“Too much acting” facial expression. Headwear. The hands are in the shot and cover the face. Too close, the head is cropped.


Film shot

Wrong height-to-width aspect ratio, a film shot. Hands and foreign objects in the shot distract attention and cover the face. 

An actor’s photo should be objective reality, but not a way of a photographer’s self-expression
