Modern Business Headshot in Cape Coral Florida with Liz

Background color sampled from Liz's jacket in Photoshop - Nikon D300 Nikkor 80-200mm f/2.8 @ f/7.1 1/200th ISO 200 - Strobist: SB-800 in brolly to frame right

Liz called me up needing headshots for the company she works for.  They did not have any set guidelines nor did Liz have any so I suggested a modern style business headshot, one that can be cropped perfectly square (above) that can be used as a profile photo on social media sites, then one cropped rectangular (below) for more traditional placement on about pages on websites.  I made these headshots right in the living room of her Cape Coral home using my mobile headshot studio setup.

For the background of this photo I sampled the shirt Liz is wearing under her jacket - Nikon D300 Nikkor 80-200mm f2.8 @ f/7.1 1/200th ISO 200 - Strobist: SB-800 in brolly to frame left & SB-600 in shoot-through umbrella to frame left

I photographed Liz on a white background then in Photoshop cut her out of the original image and placed her on a blank background.  I then inserted a layer behind her choosing a color to compliment the headshot image.  I often sample a color from the clothing the person is wearing, which I did in both cases here.  I then add a circular gradient and no mess, no fuss a colorful background makes the business headshot pop.
