Ok, here's my scenario.
As many of you know, I'm considering updating a couple of online profiles, and possibly joining Facebook in a professional capacity only. And I want a good photo for LinkedIn.
I want to have a good photo. But I want to be in a "thoughtful" pose. I was thinking of one of those poses where I'm looking up and to the side of the camera, kinda like this:
Except with my hand a little higher up on my chin. Though I've heard covering your mouth in a photo like that is a bad thing.
And since I'm a software engineer by trade, I'm wondering if I should go full-blown jacket and tie, just go shirt &tie, or just a nice Polo-style shirt. Or heck, maybe even a plain, solid-colored T-shirt.
