Simplicity {St Albert headshot photography}

It's not a style I often showcase here, but a simple headshot - for children and adults alike - is one of my favourite styles of photography. I use both natural and artificial lighting set-ups for these photos, and they are the portraits that most often make it to print in my home.

Recently, I had a studio headshot session for a large group of engineers; It was fun reassuring them that the white backdrop I was using would not look white in their photos, which required a grey background - light is fun to manipulate.
