Project Portrait: Day 94
Day 93 of Project Portrait. Next up we have the lovely Katie Paterson. Katie was looking for a headshot she can use on LinkedIn and elsewhere. She showed me the one her former employers used and it was well… not great. Katie was convinced she was the most un-photogenic person ever and that she absolutely hates having her photo taken. So I took this shoot as a bit of a challenge to a) convince her that it was possible to take a good picture of her and b) that it wouldn’t be as painful as she had previously thought. I also wanted to try and add a bit more to the standard headshot by using a lovely pink light and applying it to the left-hand side of her face to compliment her skin tone. Despite her protests – and the complete inability to keep a straight face wink emoticon – I managed to grab this shot. I was super pleased with the result and I hope I’ve managed to convince someone else that there’s no such thing as an un-photogenic person – just bad photographers.
