How do you bring out different characters in headshots? There's a simple first step that every aspiring headshot photographer or actor doesn't think of for some reason: pick the roles you want to bring out.
If you don't choose them before the shoot, how are you supposed to have them show up in the photo?
What kind of looks do you really want in the headshot? Seductive? Intelligent and professional? Think of them beforehand and tell your photographer so that he or she can give you recommendations on colors to wear in your headshots based on their meaning.
The second thing to do to bring out characters in your headshots is to really put yourself into the mind of the role you want to play. If you are trying to be elegant, put yourself into that mindset. Remember that you can play multiple emotions, such as elegant yet angry. It all depends on what you wear and what your expression tells in the headshot.
