The third attorney in as many weeks visited my home photography studio in St. Petersburg Florida for a professional business headshot. Sarah was starting a new job and all the employees for the global investor company that hired her have their own profile page on the company's website. There were guidelines to follow for the type of shot so that it would have a consistent look with the other headshots made previously for the rest of the staff.
The shot you see above is not the one following those guidelines of course, it is one we did for our own creative look. After making the needed corporate headshot, I turned off one of my speedlights to introduce more dramatic shadowing and then in editing adding a digital background. I tried the usual white and black first, but then decided to try orange. Thankfully Sarah liked my bold orange choice as well!
