Number Three

Last week I wasn’t showing up anywhere in search for headshots, boohoo.  Yesterday I was number three in just one week!  I wasn’t really thinking about optimizing for headshots because I’m basically a model shooter.  The film industry has come to town so headshots are on my radar more.  There are quite a few industries out there that need headshots if you really think about it.

The image above is from a series of headshots for Detroit’s WWJ-TV Channel 62.  It was priced as a commercial shoot so it was a nice two day shoot.  The first day was  formals the second day were environmentals.   They wanted all the enviromentals horizonal with  bright backgrounds out of focus from around the station.   I shot all the on camera talent and the images were for their advertising print campaign.   I provided all the retouching.

I got the job as a referral from a model I’ve tested (tfp) with in the past.   Thank you so much Sheri.

For paying clients I would never show the before….but for testing I would

but i have to say these look unbelievably close to the originals.

You’re posts are always informative. Love the shots.

I know you like to keep retouching of headshots to a minimum, but what level of retouching was done for these two examples. I think that would be a great post in itself.
