Like the cobbler who’s kids don’t have new shoes…sometimes you have to get your own portrait done. Especially when your boss is looking for a refreshed bio and headshot to give to HER new boss so that she can get to know the team.
And, I had a pretty nice trim of the beard, too, so decided to get new portraits shot last weekend.
It started raining last Thursday and lasted, I think, through Sunday evening. No baseball, wasn’t my kids weekend, so I had a lot of time on my hands. Perfect time to shoot some new headshots.
I kept it pretty simple – 10 second timer, natural light. I actually was going to use a strobe, or even a flash, but I was getting some bounce where I was sitting so just stayed natural. Even though it was pouring five feet from where I was sitting, it was still a bright-ish day.
Sometimes that’s all you need – a nice jacket and some good light. Now my LinkedIn page looks snappy too!
I’ll be getting more regular around here, I promise!
