This week your photographic challenge is to take and share a ‘headshot’ portrait.
You’re welcome to photograph a friend, family member (adult or child), a stranger or even yourself – but we’re looking for something framed around head and shoulders but not much more than that.
There’s no wrong or right way to take a headshot and we’ll suggest some tutorials and resources to check out below – the key is getting your camera out and experimenting!

Also don’t forget that Phil Steele currently is offering dPS readers 30% off his Headshots and Portraits Course.
Once you’ve taken your ‘Headshot’ image and have upload it to your favourite photo sharing site either share a link to it or – embed it in the comments using the our new tool to do so.
If you tag your photos on Flickr, Instagram, Twitter or other sites with Tagging tag them as #DPSHEADSHOTS to help others find them. Linking back to this page might also help others know what you’re doing so that they can share in the fun.
Also – don’t forget to check out some of the images posted in our last challenge – Transport challenge where there were some great images submitted.
