a head shot is a photographic technique where the focus of the photograph is a person's face, but it is not the same as a portrait. a portrait will often “portray” the person by including elements of his life, such as his work, interest, etc. meanwhile, headshot is an image that portrays people as they are, more of a “mug shot” or some kind of an identification
as a matter of fact, i do not have the slightest idea who is that guy on the photo. maybe a tourist, maybe a local resident of the city where i live. he was supposed to notice my preparation when taking a picture of that bust behind the fence. not telling a word he jumped between the camera and the fence with an emotionless face. in spite of the short distance my macro lens could focus, i exposed. it is possible that i said “thank you” when he left, but i am not sure
