Location Headshots On the GO!

Dynamic Location Headshots are a vital part of representing yourself in business and many modern business people want the more natural, authentic look of a  location portrait instead of the studio look. Traveling light and being nimble with light modification is key to making headshot sessions quick and painless and still get dynamic, well-lit portraits.

Learn to modify available light to get great business or talent headshots in urban or corporate/city locations. Choosing the right background, depth of field and angle of light is key for flattery and impact. Learn when to use off camera flash or LED lights for fill or kickers, and how to use reflectors, scrims, and black panels to get a professional corporate headshot look in many different locations and lighting scenarios.

Using mirrorless cameras allows us not only to travel lighter but to leverage the technology of today to get the best portraits. Focusing tools, zebras, TTL flash, and even video features all help to make the business of headshots on location easier than ever.

Suzette will share her techniques for lighting, posing, background choices, lens choice, and camera settings for great headshots.
