Buyer review complete, Marketplace review

We need 3 portraits (3 different people). Feel free to submit one or more. They exude a sense of genuineness beyond trendy, age group, income bracket, gender or race. 1) The criteria: a range of ages between 30ish-60ish; 2) Women and men; 3) Racial diversity among the three photos is important. 4) MOST IMPORTANT: The person is looking right at the camera, with a relaxed, natural gaze (see attached sample). They have a frank but friendly expression. 5) Appearance is casual: little or no makeup. 6) Background should be unimposing... blurry perhaps. Not a must, but helpful: photo is backlit (see attached sample). 7) Framing: should be close but feature the entire head with some background (as it sample one). We will pay $75 per photo used.

3 years ago - Hey Rosesatire, the colour photo should be of a single person whose head and shoulders are squarely facing the camera. Thanks for asking! And cheerful New Year!
3 years ago - I have a question re this request. Is a photo with two people in it acceptable? The photo meets the brief in all other respects. Thanks

3 years ago - Re: position of subjects—what I'm looking for: subject is facing camera, head and shoulders square to the camera, no tilting heads, or tilting shoulders. No hands in shot. Thank you everyone. Some beautiful work! Sad we can't use more of them.

3 years ago - The best position for the subject is with head and shoulders facing the camera with a background that doesn't distract. This is about the genuineness of the subjects presence and gaze.

4 years ago - Portraits need to have a gentle but straightforward quality (see first sample photo in the creative brief). Their gaze is deep, genuine and without affectation. We need more options in the 40-60 age group.
