A headshot can tell a lot about a person. Let a professional headshot really show who you are. I am an on-location photographer which means I come to the location of your choice and photograph you either inside or outside showcasing who you are. Headshots are for everyone, not just corporate or real estate professionals. If you have a Facebook page, Linked-in profile or any other social networking site, you need a professional headshot. Here are a few tips.
How to Choose What to Wear for Headshots
*Wear a top that is a solid color. Prints and patterns do not photograph nearly as well, and may take away from the focal point of the headshot--your face. Choose a color that compliments your skin tone and wear a top with a very simple style.
Don't wear brightly colored ties or a busy print jacket.
Bring several choices of tops with you to the photo shoot. This will give you options. Sometimes, what looks good in person does not look as good in a photo and vice versa. Therefore, you will want to have options and be able to change your look.
Resist the urge to wear accessories. In terms of headshots, less is more. You want your headshot to be simple, elegant, and representative of you. Accessories can also date the photograph.
Wear makeup, but don't overdo it. You need a nice base that will photograph well, but you still want to look like yourself in the headshot. You can get your makeup done for free, or at the cost of purchasing a product at many of the cosmetic stands in a department store.
Have a great day and stay safe.
