5 Key Elements of a Great Portrait

Sometimes it’s easier to understand what it is that you don’t like about a photo than it is to identify why you love a photo. Fortunately there are a few key elements that go into almost every great portrait. Here is a list of 5 elements that Melonie Dodaro of Top Dog Social Media recently identified as being important to making a great business photo for use on LinkedIn and your other social media accounts:

  1. Ensure your photo has a clean background
  2. – the subject deserves to get all the attention

  3. Use a professional photographer to create a great photo for you
  4. – please, no selfies!

  5. Use a tight headshot
  6. – save the weekend party pictures for Facebook

  7. Add a splash of color to your wardrobe
  8. – stay professional, but ditch the drab

  9. Turn that frown upside down
  10. – a smile always invites action or engagement

We try to incorporate all of these elements into every business portrait we create. If you want to learn more about why each point is important then you can see the original article “5 Elements of a Successful Social Media Profile Picture” at the Top Dog Website.
