“When photographing headshots for brunette models, make sure you have plenty of overhead light. That brings out the richness of color in the hair so it is not too dark or dull.” says Dallas headshot photographer Marcus.
This photo used a fan blowing the hair back for a more glamorous look. “Her hair and makeup were carefully done before she went into the studio” he adds. Also note the neutral tan backdrop keeps the overall feeling of the portrait warm and flows with her hair and complexion. “Sometimes you want a contrast between the subject and the background in model portraits, but in this case I like how the background and hair simply frame the face. This is the look I like. It is all warm and friendly and I like how the lipstick and eyes provide the color contrast.”
The fresh and friendly look is very marketable for models and actor headshot portraits. For a session in studio or on location in Dallas call 972-822-3587.
