HEADSHOT PREPARATION - Shoot Dublin Photography

Here are some tips to help you prepare for your headshot session. 

Avoid busy clothing such as stripes, patterns or anything with a logo.
Jewellery rarely works in headshots. 
For a traditional business look, classic dark suits are a good choice. The ideal tie is often a shade that falls between the color of the suit and shirt underneath.
For a more "business casual" look, skip the jacket and go for a coloured shirt that, ideally, is darker than your skin tone.
Men - come clean shaven, unless intentional.
Women - Avoid black bras under white shirts, and vice versa.
If you're unsure what to wear, bring an extra outfit. 
Come hair and makeup ready, unless a MUA has been arranged.
If you have any specific retouching requests, just let us know.
Get a good sleep, and stay hydrated
Don't worry, you'll get some extra direction if necessary. The best headshots look confident and relaxed. In the age of digital cameras, we can take dozens of photos and choose the best one, so relax, experiment and have fun!
