Intention in Headshot photography

I’d like to talk about Intention in Headshot photography.

There are many aspects I keep in mind through a headshot photography session.

because every person is unique, the most interesting aspect for me is working with my subject, to get the desired expressions.

My job as a headshot photographer is to lay out the ground on which my subject’s character can flourish and manifest itself so I can capture it. It’s very important for the subject to have intention behind their expression, that’s what I’m looking for in my sessions.

Light and composition are fundamentals and are second nature to me, I check them constantly and press the shutter only if both are perfect, as well as making sure that the background is just that and doesn’t have any attention grabbing elements.

While Light and composition have to do with aesthetics, they are mostly technical, and since I’m very experienced, I always make it work first, so I can concentrate in my subject, this is really what it’s all about.

I find Liron Levo’s shots above, a great example of Intention in Headshot photography, each one captures a moment that represent a character with intention.

A Portrait in Blue and Gold

Caroline Johansen - Actress
Shooting portraits is not only a job for me, It is something I really love doing.
The two most important aspects of photography are lighting and composition, in Portrait photography and headshot photography, unlike other forms of photography I’m commissioned to do, I need to connect and understand how to get my subjects into the mood needed, to get the expressions i’m looking for, I find it to be the most important aspect of portraiture.

I shot this headshot portrait of lovely Caroline Johansen, last Thursday, In the Hopewood location near Hollywood, California.
