So the picture that’s been my face in social media for the last several years is a little dated. Or more accurately “carbon dated,” to quote Buffy. My bad.
Finally got around to getting something new and while not the pretty glamorized studio shots, at least these were taken this century.
YOU have to look at it in my profiles, via my comments and tweets, I figure I’ll let you help me decide.
I had thought of doing a few ‘do the glasses make me look smarter?’ shots but then, I rarely wear them when working with clients or going to networking meetings. Anyway.. my hair fell in Atlanta’s absurd heat and humidity and I’m squinting in the sun; these are ‘better’ than my Facebook pictures in which my face is completely obscured by sunglasses and baseball cap, so there’s that.
The choices are:
[stextbox id=”custom” float=”true” align=”right” width=”200″ bcolor=”000000″ bgcolor=”e2fcfd” image=”null”][poll id=”5″][/stextbox]
Option A: Might be my “favorite” which just means it’s decent enough and I look semi-professional I guess. Minimal squinting, I almost like my hair and when scaled down for Google and Twitter, this could work.
Option B: Off-angle look, which is semi-flattering. Also has a ‘could suffice for a LinkedIn picture’ look about it. B&W didn’t do these any favors, so color it is.
Option C: Extreme closeup, which I’d probably like if the camera was pulled back. To Cleveland. Least fave.
Big thanks to Atlanta-area photographer Gloria Stowers for her help, very patient as we tried tons of poses. Silly excuse for a blog post but WTH.
