So I realized that the headshot I use for bio/profile shots was taken back in 2006 and that maybe I could do a new photo since I have a camera and all. So I did. How does it go? Well I hold out my arm and take photos from slightly above myself or even with my face. NEVER FROM BELOW! Then I take about 100 more, each at slightly different angles of my head. Finally, I upload them all, pick the one I dislike least, and ta da! A new headshot is born.
TIP: I de-saturate by about 40%. This helps if you’re sunburned from a Giants game (whoops), or just want to make it a little more chilled out in color.
Fyi- I take them by myself because a certain husband is useless in such things. He’d either take photos with way too much background or make me laugh so much I look really dumb in every picture.
However… during this photo shoot a little 4 year old wandered in and asked for her photo. She wanted silly photos and told me “make a face like me mommy!”
I LOVE THIS!!!
Can you feel the silliness?
good times, and a photo I’m anxious to get scrapbooked…
