Ed Gregory at Photos in Color makes a pretty bold claim in his new video. It’s titled “Why this is the perfect PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHY angle – Proven by SCIENCE” The exact angle for perfect headshots every single time. It’s a shame that this video from has such a misleading and clickbaity title, because it does have some good information in it.
The “perfect” portrait and angle is going to vary a lot from photographer to photographer. It’s a very subjective thing. What we like is what we like. It’s also going to vary greatly depending on the person sitting in front of the camera, too. Facial structure, build and demeanour plays a huge part. There is no one rule to… um… rule them all. But do have a watch of the video anyway. Just ignore the “science” bit.
