Portraits: A Recipe for a Good Image
A passport photo isn’t recommended to be used as a corporate portrait because it would not represent who you are, what you do and for who you work. There’s a huge difference in quality between these 2 types of portraits, that’s why a business headshot is a wise investment.
A good portrait is a mix of meticulous pre-production work and a proper post-production system. The key factor here is to understand the type of preparation and the approach that I take for each portrait shoot.
- Understanding what the client wants & where the images will be used
- Existing reference portrait photos serve as a base for further discussions on what would work best for your brand and the industry your team represents
- Deciding on the style of portraits / backgrounds and environments
- In case of multiple-day shoots at different locations the same lighting setup can be replicated to maintain consistency throughout the project
- Each shoot can be done differently depending on the client preferences
- Pre-selected images are uploaded into a gallery from which a client will choose their desired images
- Selected images will undergo a retouching workflow
- Retouched images will be shared to client for download
