How to shoot natural headshots
One of the questions that I get asked most often as a photographer is “how do you get your headshots to look natural?” And my approach is the same every time - I have a good conversation.
I listened to a recent TED talk, and it reminded me of all the great things that come from a really good conversation - things like energy, inspiration, engagement and connection - all of which look great on camera. So I approach every portrait and corporate headshot session with the same curiosity and honesty as I would any other conversation. It is one of the best parts about being a headshot photographer in a city as diverse as Hong Kong - I get to meet someone new almost everyday, and a great conversation to go along with it.
