Capturing Stunning Headshots
Using Natural Light
Whether you’re taking headshots for a client’s LinkedIn profile or just want to get creative with your best friend then consider positioning your human (or canine) subject in natural light. Studio photography is a beast to properly execute, especially when you don’t have appropriate lights or seamless backgrounds readily available. That’s why I always suggest and strongly urge photographers to utilize natural indoor and outdoor light to obtain a more organic, authentic feel. Natural lighting creates a much more personable and multi talented approach when using such headshots on social media, resumes, or Slack profiles — let’s agree to leave studio headshots in the ‘80s.
Let’s chat about the importance of deploying proper lighting techniques in natural settings, how to perfect skin tone, and when’s the best time of day to take said pictures.
