Headshot Background Choices
The background used for a headshot can set the tone for the headshot itself. When clients inquire about a headshot session, I like to walk through the options of background and setting with them. For me, there are three main options for a headshot backdrop. First is the studio setup. The studio look with backdrop and studio lighting is easily repeatable, consistent, and professional. This look is great when you have a larger number of people who need headshots. It’s also the perfect option for a standard business headshot. Another option is a hybrid of the studio look with natural light. In my studio, we have the option of using natural light with backgrounds. This creates a softer, casual yet still professional look. The final option is an environmental headshot. Using the office or other commercial setting, we use the space itself as the background. This is a great modern option for the headshot background. The environmental headshot is becoming very popular for all industries. This look gives a little bit more information about you by including surroundings in the headshot image.
Headshots for Ashley
We decided on a clean white background for Ashley’s new headshot. This background is perfect for social media sites like LinkedIn where the image is not cluttered by a dark background. A white background is also a great choice for websites that are mainly white. Instead of your eye catching the dark background, your attention focuses on the person. That is the intention of a headshot in the first place!
