I recently had the pleasure of photographing this delightful young lady for her school formal. Photographed in our studio and on the stairs that lead from the studio down to my house.
Eternity Photography started in the nineties, just wanted to look back at what we were doing then……
These were all taken on film (obviously) and are pretty much a straight scan from the print or negative. Retouching was not something I did very often back then, it was all done in the camera or on the enlarger. I like to look back and use some old techniques from time to time (if they suit the subject), and its great fun using some old forgotten esoteric knowledge.
Actors headshots are deceptively simple, they need to make an impact but still look “real”. The last thing you want is to show up at an audition and get rejected because you look nothing like the idealized representation that is your overcooked headshot. Similarly, you don’t want to look so ordinary that you don’t get noticed. Here is a headshot session done last week for a young actress. She was kind enough to let me film the session for training purposes, so the video shows a quick run-through of the planning setup and shoot with some of the pics at the end. (edit video removed)
