As you know, Firefly Nights Photography does headshots. We love creating professional headshots for any purpose – be them corporate, modeling/acting, dating, or whatever purpose! Every headshot serves a purpose, and so we make sure to talk with clients about the intended use, target market or audience, and the personality they want to show. All these factors play a part in a good photograph of yourself and should be considered in terms of lighting, background, and posing.
Here is a good example of two different types of headshots. The first is a recently graduated teen who is going away to college and needed a good picture for rushing sororities at college. Obviously, she needed to show a confident, friendly girl whom others would want to be a part of their sisterhood. It didn’t hurt that she was so pretty! Honestly, she was the sweetest thing and had a blast with her walking down the street on this pretty spring day with everything in bloom.
I love all the pink flowers that were in bloom on this day. It made for the perfect setting for her.
Then we have a totally different type of headshot with these corporate ones. But instead of just being boring, typically conservative headshots, this woman had some style and attitude. So we let that shine while still keeping in mind her target market. For this first one, she wanted to show her edginess.
But then we switched to a more traditional suit and plain background. But we used a slightly more dramatic lighting than normal to keep up with her personality.
This is my favorite of hers.
So if you are in need of an updated headshot, give us a call! We promise to make it a painless experience. 😉 heck, I bet you even love the end result!
