White background headshots – perfect for LinkedIn!
What is a white background headshot?
A white background headshot is photographed against a completely white background. There is no colour or tone at all. This sounds a bit boring but this style of headshots have some really important applications. Here are two of the main ones:
- LinkedIn and the social media avatars
- Where a completely consistent style is needed across multiple locations
Why white background headshots are so powerful
White background headshots can be the most powerful of all headshot styles. Male and female headshots work equally well on white backgrounds and the emphasis is on the subject. There are no distractions. Facial expressions and personality jump out at the viewer.
This makes them really powerful for social media avatars on platforms like Linked In, Twitter, Facebook business pages etc.
