What’s in a headshot? 
You sit them down and go click, right? How hard can it be to create headshot? There’s more to headshot than just creating a visual roadmap of someone’s face. If you approach headshots from the mindset that a headshot is an investment and not a cost, you can help differentiate yourself from the competition. We will explore the basics in lighting, composition and emotion. Look at some client images and maybe have time for questions? The goal of this program will be to educate you a little, perhaps too to inspire you with some ah-ha moments and maybe a few laughs if time permits.
