TOP 10 TIPS FOR PROFESSIONAL HEADSHOTS - What to Avoid
We like to set our clients up for success for their professional headshots and we've come up with some quick solutions for the most common mistakes we've seen. Our clients are much happier with their headshots and with their outfits if they are not fussing with them or trying to hide tags or bra straps during their session. We take the time to talk with each of our awesome clients prior to their session to find out what they would love us to create for them for their professional headshots or business portraits and find out how we can help them look their best.
10 Mistakes to Avoid (Most common things we see)
1. Wayward bra straps that like to show up in the photographs
(Solution: Try a strapless bra).
2. Food in teeth
(Solution: Brush your teeth before your shoot.
3. Stains on Clothing
(Solution: Clothing should be steamed and cleaned before shoot and brought to your session on hangers).
4. White deodorant marks on clothing
(Solution: Wear clear deodorant.)
5. Ripped, Worn or Over-Ironed clothing
(Solution: Don't wear or be prepared to pay for additional retouching).
6. Visible Clothing Tags
(Solution: Remove tags before the shoot if they show through fabric).
7. Colorful Bras that show through clothing
(Solution: Nude colors or black are best under clothes).
8. Half plucked eyebrows
(Solution: Get a professional brow wax about week prior to the session).
9. Razor Burn
(Solution: Go easy on the razor or try an electric one. Salt water can irritate skin so avoid the ocean a day or two prior.)
10. Reflections on Eyeglasses
(Solution: Have an antiglare/antireflection coating put on your glasses)
