“Headshot” is a common photography term thrown around often, and it should be self explanatory. Stating the obvious, a headshot is a photo of a person, intended to show the person’s face.

So your idea of a headshot is usually different from his or her idea, is different from my idea… The final result is usually as unique as each individual.
