Be an Ordinary Person and Take Great Headshots

Someone from the musical Godspell asked me to take headshots of the cast.

My knee-jerk reaction was no, no, no – I just do photography for fun. I’m better at taking pictures of families. If these photos are going in the program and being put up on the big screen, for the love of all things, go with a professional.

But, they said they wanted me. (They were on a budget, and my free-ninetly-nine worked for them.)

So, I shrugged my, yes, not feeling at all confident.

We literally took these pictures in the hallway with huge windows. I played with them in photoshop. And, do you know what? I’m super happy with how they turned out.  

Is it okay for me to say this ordinary person took some great headshots? And you can too.

Since these pictures, photo cameras, and editing apps have grown by leaps and bounds. Lighting is key. Outside on a cloudy day, in the evening works best. Or inside in front of windows. Just avoid harsh light and shadows. Then run your photos through all those awesome filters, and I think you’ll say you’re an ordinary person who took some great headshots too.
