Business Portraits – crop, necklines + jewelry matters!

I recently photographed this beauty. It occurred to me how important neck lines, and jewelry are as I tried to crop this image for her employer. The company require’s the same lighting with very little lighting in the background. This type of photography creates the focus on the face. I love the sparkle in her eyes with that Mona Lisa smile!

If you want to use your image in a variety of marketing materials, it’s important to have the flexibility to crop a photo. Keep in mind the final image. What will you be using this photo for? Will it be vertical, horizontal, square or round? Here’s a few example’s.

Leaving lots of room around the image gives flexibility for cropping.

close horizontal crop, you’ll probably cut off any hanging jewelry
Close up, who cares about jewelry anyway?
This crop show’s her jewelry!

Sometimes there are to many options, It just depends on what you’d like to portray with your image!
