It is amazing how Linkedin has changed the professional market place. The way we project ourselves in our profile picture invites people to either click on our page or pass on it. This photo session was very exciting for us because our client had a specific idea of what he wanted to project with his photo. His ideas lead us to do a creative headshot session where we explored different backgrounds to achieve what he wanted to portrait. The location chosen to take the pictures was challenging. We had never taken pictures in the Boston Financial District area. And that came with its own challenges. We had to pack light because we were going to have to walk long distances with our gear. That means that we couldn't bring everything we usually bring to a photo session. But at the end it was a rewarding and successful session.
At the end this is the photo that we liked the most. The funny thing about it is that we decided to take it when we were done with the session and we were already packing. We saw an additional opportunity for a picture with a nice background that presented a very even light. We couldn't pass on it. So we said, why not? let's take one more picture.
What helped made this picture successful? At the end of a photo session the person being photographed is usually more relaxed in front of the camera and acts more naturally. And the photographer has a better connection with that person and knows what angles work best for him or her.
The photo session was great. We had a lot of fun. Our client was terrific. He was ready to try every idea we had, always with a great attitude.
