After the longest period from first contact to actual shoot date (almost 6 months!) I was glad to finally head to Tampa to make corporate headshots for the staff at a wealth management company. One or more are often out of the office so I was in contact about every two weeks in that six months period trying to find a date everyone was available on. Following up is key sometimes!
They requested my standard neutral gray background for their headshots, and a traditonal vertical rectangle composition. I used two speedlights, each in a 43" brolly. One about 45 degrees to frame front right and one half closed to the rear of frame left.
I had each person sit on a small stool and lean forward a bit with their right elbow on their right thigh to create depth and a more natural look overall. Shooting in this kind of controled environment using the existing background means minimal editing needs to be done other than a little touching up and contrast tweaks.
My portrable headshot studio fit nicely right in their office lobby! It was a fun shoot and everyone did a great job in front of the lens.
