Different Backgrounds and Wardrobe

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!

Russia through Another Lens

OK, my title today is a bit deceptive. I really just wanted to get you to have a look! Russia has been in the news a lot lately and Mr. Putin – and by extension his whole country – have mostly been demonized by the U.S. press. It’s beyond the scope of my humble photography blog to voice an opinion about international demons. But I can say that most of the Russian people I’ve met are friendly, engaging and a joy to spend time with. Anastasia, pictured here, is a prime example!

Anastasia came to the U.S. about eight years ago. She grew up in an area near Sochi and attended and graduated from a college in Moscow. In this country, she’s worked as a fashion model and also earned an advanced degree in business. Anastasia is actively seeking a job in the business world and wants to build a life here in the U.S.

We did a photoshoot in the studio recently, working in a variety of concepts. This post has a few of the beauty/glamour headshots from that day.

Thanks, Anastasia, for a wonderful shoot. I wish you all the best, wherever your life might take you.

And – My Grand Niece Maisie

Yesterday, I put up pictures of Maisie’s brother, Leo. If you didn’t see them, click here. Maisie is my grand niece – my nephew’s daughter, also my late brother Sam’s granddaughter. And she is as sweet as sweet can be!

OK, I admit, I put her up to this pose above – she was very well behaved and patient with me during the shoot. This is one amazing 5-year-old.

And, as you can see, she can do serious as well. These pictures were taken just with window light. I can’t wait to see you again, dear Maisie!
