Classic wife errors, cut the top of your head off in one and hat in another, and didn't get you in the frame in the last one :D

Wrong.....not an error.. they were all correctly framed to begin with.. i cropped them that way... i should have clarified that in the beginning

Was shooting some ornaments. Some of the round glass items are *$#^#@ to shoot.

(I was mixing the lights/stuff around, so setup is not exactly as it was when that photo was taken)

DT after attending a Peter Hurley seminar on headshots, I bought into his technique having a lot of negative space and cropping the head.

In MY opinion, it is paramount to follow the rule of thirds in this type of shots, otherwise they look like wife's errors (wife in general, not yours in particular).

As a matter of fact, I think that if you follow the rule of thirds, the rule of focusing on the nearest eye and you are shooting a headshot, you can only come up with the Peter Hurley look.

Looks like you are doing just as well in front of the camera!...;)

DT, I say forget what others do and forge your own path. Yes, you must know the basics but rules are made to be broken. I think numbers 1,2 and 5 are the best in the above series. And as Gerry says, you are doing just as well in front of the camera as your wife is doing behind the camera.

This has just got to be a joke. It's even got a smiley after it.

#1,2 & 5 look great!

He was giving you the smiley face - he was ribbing you... It is obvious that your vision is what you meant to catch...

At least, that is how I am reading it...

Thx Makis I totally understand what your saying and I honestly was not going for no specific look. I decided to not follow the rule of thirds when cropping these.. Rule of thirds does not apply here or anywhere I don't want it to apply it to.. Hey, if the crop looks bad to many "pros" here then you know what.. I apologize for bending the rules... Unlike tpatana I appreciate your concern and advice to other members on this forum. People like you have helped me along the way to satisfy myself more and the people I work with. Taking the time to give good advice to others has to be highly respected.
Thx again

Thx chimp

I thought this thread was more about the lighting and equipment used to get the shot desired. Am I wrong??!!! Did I miss something??

Absolutely...:D There is justification for the rule of thirds, it is not arbitrary...It is well documented aesthetic principle.

However, if one considers it and decides not to apply it, no problem at all...

As a matter of fact, I can see the justification in the last shot, where you want to show half the face on the border... It can't be easily done and keep the rule of thirds, so out of the window goes the rule of thirds.

Aside from the arm of the sunglasses on your chin, I'm digging this shot. Nicely done.
