Carol visited my home studio this afternoon for a new business headshot. She was an excellent client and knew how to get into position well. Before we started shooting I showed her a few different lighting and background options. Through the process of making the headshot we decided upon a slight shadow and a digital background for the image seen above. The real background was a light tan wall that I removed and in its place inserted a gray-blue one.
Making a portrait of any type is a collaboration between photographer and subject, and this time I involved the client in more of the process than I usually do as I was even able to show her on my computer monitor a rough sample of what the headshot would look like on a given background.
I offer business headshots both at your location or in my home studio (as long as you do not mind Kiki).
