Approach Your Next Professional Headshot This Way
Let’s be honest, most people don’t love getting their photos taken. Cue: A lot of clients before we even meet, “let me just tell you that I hate every photo of me”. Well, golly, that’s not the greatest attitude to approach your headshots with, now is it?
Why is it important to approach your professional headshots with a positive and relaxed attitude? It’s because the camera, and your images, will reflect any tension, anxiety or stress in your face and body. When that happens, your headshots will come out forced, unnatural and won’t reflect your authentic self. What exactly happens when you get tense or anxious during a shoot? There’s lots of different manifestations, but common ones include: You stop breathing and get that “deer in headlights” look; you start leaning away from the camera and your chin starts rising giving an unapproachable vibe, or you lower your chin too much and get that unfortunate double chin look.
