Do you know someone with a double chin in their headshot? A lot of people get double chins in their photographs, when they don’t really have on in real life. We’ve seen it in people from all age groups and body types.
Biggest Cause Of Double Chins
The most common complaint about portraits is double chins. And I don’t mean hiding a double chin you have in real life. Even the slimmest person suddenly grows a double chin when they stand in front of a camera.
The problem is in the pose. Most people stand straight up and back when posing for a photograph. If your photographer doesn’t correct you, then congratulations! You have a double chin.
It’s The Photographer’s Fault
These are 2 shots in the same session. The left is how he moved into place naturally. Does he look friendly? Yes. Does he look like that with a double chin in real life? No.
This is the type of shot where they’ll just not like it, something is off. It has nothing to do with the camera or lighting equipment, and some photographers can’t/won’t fix this.
A Professional Headshot Photographer should do more than place you in front of some gear. We spent a few moments positioning him correctly, and showing him how to stand. On the right is the result. No double chin and a representation of him that feels correct. Which do you prefer?
Join Thousands Of Happy Clients
We have photographed thousands of people from all industries. Did we just happen to run into a few thousand people with no double chins? No.
It’s all in the guidance and direction we give as a portrait photographer. We’ve spent years learning about people, and how to bring out the best in them.
We have never gifted someone a double chin. People who may have a double chin? We reduce the prominence of it naturally so you look your best but not faked.
