So what color should you use for your background?
White? Gray? Black? or some RGB Color?
Brick was popular for a while and for some still is desirable
One thing is for sure, simple plain backgrounds will keep the attention on you and not the background.
Where are you posting the headshot?
These Social Media use a circle for the headshot.
Personally I think the white background works better in the circle. My second choice is a light color. The teal colored background was the organizations color for their brand. That worked on their website and also for the social media as well.
Don’t Be This Guy
Dubbed “the new handshake,” professional headshots are now the first introduction to you, your business and your personal brand—shouldn’t that intro be the best it can be? With 93% of HR professionals and recruiters tapping into LinkedIn to find quality candidates—plus candidates—plus 2 in 3 on Facebook and more than half utilizing Twitter—that headshot has countless applications in your professional life.
