This was my first portrait session that was specifically for an actress’ head shots. It was so much fun! I loved being able to see the different expressions this young woman expressed. We had such a fun time and the evening light was beautiful. As the sun began to set, I used my external flash with a tiny soft box attached. I shot with the sun’s light on her face. This light alone would have cascaded many shadows on her face, so I used my flash as a filler. Some of these images are not what she will see but I love to keep a bit of the background for my personal use. Head shots require a much more cropped image, as to focus essentially on the subject. Portraits for senior pictures and the like are much different and require more of a background. Enjoy!
