Best Headshots in LA
3 Tips-For your next Headshot Session
1. Think Classic Wardrobe-Wear any type of basic, because basics are going to give your headshot longevity. You probably want to wear a nice tank top from J.Crew or Banana Republic or a black T-shirt. I like when men are wearing V-necks in their headshots; it gives a very good neckline.
2. Avoid Dead Eyes-When we’re talking about headshots, you want the client to be able to see who you are. I like to think of happy things to put life in my eyes. You just think of whatever works for you. If you’re having a bad day, it’s going to show on your face; the camera will pick it up. And I really don’t like to look surprised. I used to have a problem with that when the camera flashed. I try to have strength in my eyes. You have to look approachable, like the girl or guy next door, someone you can have a conversation with. If it’s a smile, I just make sure I’m giving extremely genuine smiles with good thoughts on my mind. And if it’s partly open lips, I think to breathe through my mouth a little bit so I get perfectly parted lips. Always give your eyes a break and refresh your eyes.
3.Variety Is Everything-Give a variety of facial expressions. If they don’t have any type of footage of you, you want to let them know that you’re comfortable and can give all kinds of expressions.
