Headshots: Practice Makes Perfect

I hope everyone has some warm weekend plans underway (I’m off to the Pasco County Fair for more pig racing!).  I am so pleased to show you new headshots I took in Tampa’s Curtis Hixon Park.  Chase was my model, and she was outstanding in front of the camera.  Though she is just starting her career in Florida, Chase had lots of modeling and acting experience in her native Philippines — and it shows.  Her pacing in front of the camera was fantastic, and she knew her best angles in front of the camera.

The way she achieved these skills was simple: she practiced in front of the mirror until she had her moves down pat.  As I have mentioned in previous posts, learning how you look best in front of the mirror is the best way to prepare for a shoot.  Keep in mind that it should be a total look: how are your hands positioned?  Does your mouth coordinate with the emotion in your eyes?  Too much teeth?  Is your body position too exaggerated?  While still in front of the mirror, move from pose to pose.  How fast or slow are your transitions?  Are your transitions attractive (a pose within a pose, so to speak), or are you abruptly moving from angle to angle?

Enjoy the pics!
