Different Backgrounds and Wardrobe

(Click on any image to see in a LARGER size.)

When I’m shooting headshots, I always suggest to the client that we try several wardrobe looks. This is for a couple of reasons.

First, we don’t really know how an outfit is going to look in a picture until we take it. So we’ll try two or three outfits to see what works best. And I try different backgrounds as well. Secondly, the client may need different looks for different purposes.

Connor, a college student, needed a fairly formal look as he begins to explore career opportunities after graduation. He’ll likely use the tie and coat image above for this purpose.

Notice how different the second image looks without the tie and with a white background. His smile and expression are fairly close in the two pictures but the second photograph has a very different feel.

Finally, we shot the informal picture, below. Connor is a very personable and engaging young man. I know he’ll do well out in the job market – and I’m hoping these images will play a helpful role!

Working both in the studio and on location, photographer Blake Robinson serves the Connecticut communities of Darien, New Canaan, Stamford, Norwalk, Westport and Greenwich.
