Cody came to the JCP Home Studio in Albuquerque New Mexico because he wanted a professional headshot for his newly created LinkedIn profile. Many clients this year have come to me for a headshot just for LinkedIn specifically. I think it is very important to represent your own personal brand on all social media with photos that show you looking your best.
To make this shot I used my great new Cheetahstand 26" SoupBowl octosoftbox in beauty dish mode. That means no white diffusers, just a small medal disc blocking the light of my awesome new Godox AD600 monolight. Then I place a silver reflector right under the person's upper body. You can see the exact setup below in the BTS shot. The two strip boxes are for making the background pop a bit more with a slight gradient.
