Professional headshots are something every working professional should have. Recently, Aiden scheduled a professional headshot session at the AHP studio, here's how it went:
What is a Professional Headshot Photo?
A professional headshot is an image depicting a person, typically captured from the shoulders up. Professional headshots are often captured on location or in a studio by a photographer using professional equipment and lighting. Traditionally, headshot images are captured on a DSLR, which retains more detail than your typical smart phone.
Another important component of a professional headshot photo is the lighting. The way a subject is lit has a big impact on the overall mood and tone of the image. When it comes to a professional business headshot, full-face lighting is recommended. This kind of lighting is recommended for professional headshots because of the flattering effect it has on the subject.
Do you need a Professional Headshot?
A professional headshot can give you a leg up during the hiring process, or help you promote later in your career. With so much of job-seeking activity done over the internet now, a professional headshot displayed on your Linkedin or attached to your CV can help you stand out from the competition. As employees promote within their career field, a headshot may also be necessary for display on the company website.
Where to take a Professional Headshot?
Professional headshots are most often captured in a photographer's studio on a neutral background. White or gray tones are most common. Depending on your industry or branding needs, taking your headshot outside may also be appropriate.
