Professional Portraits. Why you need one!
Are you using an old high school image as your online profile picture?
Are you using a picture that isn't even you? Is your cat or dog representing you?
Don't hide behind out-of-date images or images that are not you! If you are wanting to connect and make an impression, you need an update.
You want to ensure that you are putting your best face forward and this means using an up-to-date, high-quality, professional portrait.
Lighting is the single most important factor in creating a stunning portrait. Unsightly shadows under the eyes can add years to your face and poor colour balance can make you look downright ill. Professional photographers know how to light their subjects to bring out the eyes with properly placed catch lights and adjust colour tones in camera and in post production to ensure the truest skin tones possible.
What is the purpose of your portrait? Are you an actor? Are you a realtor? What do you want your portrait to convey?
Your professional portrait should be a representation of what you are wanting to attract. By consulting with your photographer before your session about your needs and goals, you will go into your session confident that you will get the results you want. Making a list of keywords that describe your image, your brand and your goals will help your photographer in designing your look and directing you in the posing.
A professional portrait studio will have everything you need to capture your image perfectly. A variety of backdrops to suit your style, expert posing to highlight your best features and a confident photographer who will help you relax and take the pressure off during your session. While the "headshot" crop from top of head to just below the shoulders is great for a profile image, you may want additional, full-bodied images to use on your website. You may need in-action shots of you working at your craft or posing in your workspace. What ever the needs, discussing your requirements with your photographer will help you both plan out your session so that you leave knowing your images will be tailored exactly to your needs.
