Patty recently became a Creative Memories consultant, and so she needed a headshot to post on their website. So on December 24, 2017, I set up the camera, lights, reflectors and backdrop to capture her in flattering portraiture.
On November 18, 2017 I had an opportunity to take headshots for a friend who needed them for her business cards. This provided the impetus for me to study-up on headshot techniques that the professionals use, and to make a few upgrades to my equipment and software, so that I could apply some of those techniques myself (‘Always looking to up my game.). This was just my second foray into headshot photography.
My wife is incredibly creative. I had no idea when I married her, but especially after we started having kids, she started getting into creating photo albums and scrapbooks, then watercolors and other paints, some pottery and mosaics, and then more recently, she’s been making stamped and cut-paper greeting cards. The designs and color schemes are amazing. Yesterday she asked me to take a photo of her greeting cards, so she could send it with an email to our community association, as a reminder for a mini craft show that she, and three other friends, were putting on at our house this weekend. I wanted the photos to look nice, so I pulled out some equipment and went to work.
