It;s a shot, there is a head in the shot, therefore.............​.

And, most importantly, who cares?

The people who are following the thread to look at headshots.

To be honest, I peruse POTN for specific subjects, so if I'm looking for head shots, I'd rather people stay on topic.

I guess only the client who pays for a professional headshot for their work and gets a full body shot that is no good to them.

The thread is for headshots. That may have been a very nice pgotograph but it wasn't a head shot (or at best was a very poor one) and it was reasonable for people to comment on that fact.

And I can tell that having a non headshot in the headshot thread has just completely upset the order of your day.

You guys just kill me. Lighten up. In the grand scheme of things how bloody important is this?

The correct answer is: not at all.

And by the way, Dan, do you really think if this person paid for a headshot that the photographer would actually present them with this full body picture.

Again, the correct answer is no.

The correct answer is: a lot.

The way people approach these 'inane' threads –staying or not staying on topic, being or not being objective, respecting or not giving a darn about guidelines, &c– tells a lot about the kind of persons they are.

Quite honestly, and I'm not trying to defend anyone here, I get the idea that the term "head shot" is a loosely used term and a perhaps there are a lot of people on the forum who misunderstand, specifically, what head shot is. I don't want to ruffle any feathers. Just my 2 cents.

Headshot (bustshot...?) tests against my living room wall with a softbox. Tips for making the background darker in a tight-ish space would be appreciated (along with any other suggestions!). :-)

I'd think more space from the wall and bringing the softbox in as close as possible would be your best bet to keep the same style of lighting. Feathering the light out as much as possible or flagging it helps, but changes the entire look. You can see how cluttered the bear shot was here - https://photography-on-the.net …showthread.php?​p=17813253. I had to shoot from the hallway.

Ah I see, I think your light source is much more above/looking down on subject than mine is, too. Will try later with a wide angle at the edge of the room to try and cut off light. Thanks!

To get a darker background.
You need grids or someway to control the light. Your main light should only hit your subject. If you don't have grids try using a flag to block off the light hitting the background.
