“I know this is going to sound silly,” Jayne said, “but I’m having trouble getting headshots taken. I’m not sure what to expect, and I’m worried that it will be awkward or embarrassing.”

Headshots are a standard requirement in many professional fields, but they can be difficult to get right. There are so many factors to consider: the right location, the right type of photo (individual, group, action shots), the right pose, the right outfit, and so on. When you bring these concerns to an experienced photography studio like J&J Studios, we can help you relax and get exactly the look you want. Furthermore, we can also ensure that your headshots turn out great from every perspective.

We started by talking about what her needs were for her career. She explained that she would need headshots for job applications and social media profiles. We chose a time for her shoot based on what works for her schedule and arranged the details with her in advance.

ESSINGTON HEADSHOT PHOTOGRAPHY SESSION WITH JAYNE

Jayne came to our studio for a headshot session in the afternoon to get more professional images of herself for her portfolio. We decided to do the shoot on a white background and did some test shots before selecting the best lighting and posing. We then took over 30 photos of her that we narrowed down to the best. It was a great experience for us as it gave us new insight into what clients are looking for in terms of posing, lighting, and creating an environment where they feel comfortable.

We hope these photos will help Jayne achieve her career goals!

HOW DO YOU POSE FOR A HEADSHOT PHOTO?

It’s easy to think of photos as being only about the subject. But for a professional, having a photo that looks like it was taken by a professional can give you the credibility you need to get the roles you want. Here are some simple tips for posing for your headshot so that it will be camera-ready.

  • Find a nice, solid color wall or backdrop.
  • Don’t wear anything too busy or distracting.
  • If you want to wear something with contrasting colors, make sure they’re complimentary colors.
  • Wear darker colors if you have darker skin, and lighter if you have lighter skin.
  • The more natural light, the better!
  • Keep your face looking at a 45-degree angle to the camera. This makes your face look wider and fuller on camera.
