Headshot Question: Any trick to hiding multiple chins?

Tips for how to hide double chin and extra weight in professional headshot By now, everyone with a Linked In account (and a pulse) knows that they are supposed to have a great profile picture but for a lot of business professionals -- the prospect of getting in front of the camera presents a variety of questions.  After we posted a recent headshot article on our Facebook page, Tori (above) contacted us with a question that we get A LOT.

Tori asked... Any trick to hiding multiple chins? The answer is a resounding YES! I invited Tori to the studio and asked if she would be my model for a quick posing & lighting demonstration.  The left image is Tori just posing herself with no customizing of the lighting-- no direction, instructions or guidance from me on this one.   Then, literally within 60 seconds, we were able to create a completely different look.  By lighting for Tori's face shape, changing her angle to the camera and my angle to her-- we created the image on the right.  Shazamm! ...Cool right?
