For a clean crisp head shot a white background is very popular.
Ideal for social media, web site and company intranet.
Designers can prefer this look so that they can incorporate company logos, corporate colours or branding behind the image.
Drop back drops
Images with darker backgrounds tend to suit men more than women. Images with a darker background work well for corporate print.
A darker backdrop can give an image more atmosphere and gravitas.
It’s more than a head & shoulders snap.
With websites, social media etc a good head shot is your first impression.
Your head shot may be the first impression on a google search that your next new client or boss may see.
A professional head shot might just help you win that new job interview, new client business, raise the company profile.
I am amazed at so many great and professional company websites “meet the team” pages show terrible scary looking head shots taken by someone in the office with a camera!
Its not just about a plain background.
Its more than a good camera, You need the right lens, good lighting and a few little posing tricks too that help deliver a professional head shot.
If you would prefer a few photo shop manipulation that can be done.
With all my work I try getting right in camera on the day first and then if someone needs a little photoshop work always happy to undertakeΩ
