Corporate Headshot with a Cityscape Backdrop
First thing to remember is that a Corporate Headshot is a personal and a business selling tool. For this reason, it is important that you have a quality image that portrays you and your business. In this case, it’s this that forms the first impression of you.
CREATING YOUR FIRST IMPRESSION
To begin with, the start of the process is to capture your headshot. In this case, I attend your office and set up the lighting and a white or green collapsible background. As a result, the main point of this exercise is to capture a well-lit professional headshot.
For this reason by shooting at the client’s office means that I am in full control of the lighting. Consequently, the major benefit of this method ensures the headshot looks like it taken in an office.
With this in mind, green is good for replacing the background of an image (as in green screen).
In this case, white is perfect for web-friendly images. Unfortunately, when you photograph against a white background you always have a hint of grey in it.
Then in post processing, I work on the photo to remove the remove the original background. The client is then able to have a white background or one of there choice.
As a result, the white background is highly acceptable for professional headshots. However, sometimes the client likes to match a current corporate website background colour and drop that in for the individual.
Accordingly, the next process is to email the client a range of backgrounds. In this case for them to choose from and then we add these to the headshot.
When the client has selected the backgrounds(s) the subjects placed in the image. Indeed cares taken in placing the subject in the right place. That is finding the right place and ensuring the background is not pin sharp. Also reviewing the angle of the background ensuring it matches the subject.
For this reason, I ask the client to choose different backgrounds as not all of them will work. Therefore choosing the right one is about making the image look real.
Another great benefit once I have captured your headshot, you can review our photo library for a variety of backgrounds that you feel suits the headshot. Accordingly, you could use these for different media or profile photographs.
