When you see a good headshot you just know it. And as a professional photographer, I have a practised eye at discerning what the elements are that went right to create it. Which is why I’m sharing what work in these women’s business headshots.
For a start, none of the ones that I think are great were done haphazardly. Meaning that preparation was involved. Perhaps it was because the sitter invested in excellent professional hair and makeup. This ensured that they looked and felt their best before the photoshoot even started.
Or because the followed suggestions for how to prepare for your women’s business headshots photoshoot, including outfit recommendations. For example I recommend the colour and type of clothes which flatter most women’s skin type and shape. For example, jackets add definition to shape and a dash of professionalism. Also if a muted, solid colour is worn, a bit of statement jewellery works well. I find that when women follow these simple tips, the results are great.
Additionally, you can tell it’s a good women’s business headshot if the light is good. Meaning that not only is the sitter positioned correctly against natural light. Or possibly that the studio lights are set up in a way that flatters the sitter without casting shadows. But you really know that the light was right if you can see it in the sitter’s eyes. That’s what makes a portrait really compelling. In an ‘eyes are the windows of the soul’ sort of way.
And the most important factor is that my client looks their best. That they are given the best version of themselves. Which will happen, if they know they look good, and if I am successful in making them relax. I find that the key to getting a really successful headshot.
