What is the difference between a good and a bad headshot? Is it only technical? Or are there other issues? What's that "look" that actors are always trying to achieve? What is the trick that the best headshot photographers know that will make your images so much better?
Do you want to find out? Okay, I'll give you a hint: confidence.
The keyword that makes one headshot better than another is confidence. Are you confident? Or are you just happy? There is a difference.
Confidence is the most subtle yet greatest secret that all professional headshot photographers hide from the rest of you.
Even if you're an actor, you still deserve to know what it is that separates the best headshots from the others. And why you're paying $800 when you could be paying $200 or less.
Here is the difference: if you're a great actor and you want great shots, it really doesn't matter who you are hiring as your photographer as long as they know how to frame a picture and have a professional camera.
You are the one in the headshot, right? So you are the one who has control over how good the expression is. Let me explain something to you: a great headshot can be had with a not so great photographer if you show your confidence and feel good about yourself.
