Face Off!

Hi guys! Hope you're having a great weekend :)

Today's post is interactive-- I need your help! I recently had a headshot photo shoot at work and just got back all the files. The photographer, Joe Sterne, was so great to work with and all of the photos are awesome!

I'm having a hard time deciding which I like best to use. I'll definitely be making one of these my new LinkedIn picture, and it will also be used for professional purposes with work.

Now the problem is I'm more tough on myself than most people. I rarely think I look good.. which you may find ironic considering I have pictures of myself blasted through the Internet on this blog. But when it comes to photos of me, especially non-candid ones, I have a tendency to pick out every flaw. This is where you guys come in :)

Here's what I propose: would you be able to scan through these and rank your top 3 favorites?

Below are the ones that I like the best, but I need assistance narrowing down. I've labeled them by their original file number (versus something more creative) so that I can easily go back find them in my folders. If you want to pitch in, please rank first through third choice in the comment section at the bottom of the post. Also feel free to let me know why you chose the ones you did.. I appreciate your help!

  13. For LinkedIn, I'd go with 0980. Most professional and you probably want your shoulders covered for that.

    For personal, I like 2518 best. Nice head angle and best eyes.

  14. As stated above: professional probably 0980

    Personal: 2532

    You really can't go wrong with picking any of these. Great photos!
