Portrait in horizontal. David ultimately used this image for his Linked In photo. We cropped it vertical. I still object to the shadow behind his ear. His head is slightly turned so you see only one ear. His eyes are looking straight at the camera. There are catch lights. It gives the eyes some sparkle. The negative space to David’s right is a counterbalance element. It can work but you need to be careful of what is in this space. However the negative space is not for a passport style photo.
