The Headshot

It was bound to happen. I posted enough pictures on Facebook for a friend of mine to ask me to shoot her headshots.

So Joseph Dominick Photography was hired. :0)

It seems she was not thrilled at all with the headshots she had recently taken. Her makeup looked caked on in the photos. The photographer's light also seemed to accentaute the thick makeup.

Unfortunately her other colleagues also took pictures with the same professional photographer and were not satisfied with the results either.

After reviewing what the photographer did with her and her colleagues headshots, we proceeded to review various headshots online by other photographers. This exercise in research was done to get a clear understanding of the visual palette and what this actress found pleasing in headshots. We were able to select a color scheme based directly off of the headshots she found pleasing. In our consultation I was also able to get a clear idea of how she was choosing to market herself in the acting world.

Well our photo shoot went very well. We did both in studio work and outdoor shooting.

I spoke with her this weekend and she loves the headshots I took. She loves them so much she's having a hard time selecting which ones to use. :0)

So once she makes her selection, I will post them here for your viewing.
