    Default Another Headshot Session

    Here is my most recent head shot session...well, a few of the several hundred images. There are a couple more that I really love that I want to edit...but here are the example edits I did for the client. I love head shot sessions.

    They look great, Amber. Out of curiosity, are there rules to head shots? Do they have to be a certain aspect ratio, orientation, etc.?

    They are traditionally portrait orientation, but it is becoming increasingly popular to do landscape orientation. Producers and casting agents don't care as long as the main focus is the person's face. It's also usual to do mostly a literal head shot...but 3/4 shots are now acceptable as well. The aspect ratio is always 8x10.

    Very nice. I love the colors especially in the first three. She really stands out against the brightly colored background! It looks like you captured a lot of personality in these photos.

    what is the background in #5? is it a reflective sort of tile? around your watemark it looks a little strange. I also find the red behind her in #6 distracting but the others work well, I like #7 best as a head shot.

    That reflective background is a marble wall. I'm not so thrilled with that reflection either. Too bad I don't have a polarizing filter for that lens.

    My ap was 2.8 for most of the photos but some went as high as 4.5. These were all taken with my Canon 70-200 2.8 USM L lens. I LOVE that lens...it creates such creamy smooth bokeh.

    oh, she looks like she was great to work with! I think you did a terrific job (as usual) capturing your client. and she has a great smile!

    bummer on that reflection, because that really is a lovely photo. think she'll even notice the reflection? sometimes I don't know if we're "too" nitpicky with some of the details when non-photographers wouldn't notice at all.
