Making Headway with Headshots

To create a successful headshot can be difficult. However, with a talented model like Jack Daniels these shoots can be a lot of fun! Here are some tips to help you get a great shot:

-You are here to help make your client look their best, so make sure they do.
-Pay special attention to body position. The slightest change in shoulder height, face angle, and posture can make a world of difference.
-Choose an outfit that is flattering, yet not distracting from the true subject of the photograph.
-Take your shot in a natural looking setting. Consider color palette always.
-Make your model comfortable. Make conversation; tell jokes! Do what you have to, in order to bring out their inner supermodel!

Now its your turn! Part of the fun in being a photographer is wearing many hats, right? Be a set designer, make up artist, hair dresser, and photographer all at the same time!

Behind the Scenes

Our team at Bohm-Marrazzo had a wonderful time shooting a local baby TV commercial last week. As you can see it’s all smiles and laughter for the little ones. This behind the scenes photo turned out to be a great image. Sometimes what’s going on around the main event is worth taking the time to capture, too.

So remember to let your inner child come out and have some fun. No one ever really grows up anyway, right?

Portrait Photography 101

The DON’Ts of portrait photography:

  • When photographing a group of people, don’t leave the positioning up to them! Try to position them in a way that shows they like each other.
  • Don’t forget to make them smile!
  • Be the stylist. Don’t let the subjects of your portrait wear drab or unflattering garments.
  • Location, location, location. Don’t just take the photograph anywhere. Think about the setting and choose somewhere that contributes to the mood of the picture.

Happy shooting!
