Cinematic Headshots

April 6, 2018

I recently was contacted by a friend of mine who has been a long-standing client. She was in need of some new websites for a variety of purposes. But rather than take her photo in the studio, she wanted some photos taken outside to better represent her role as an active member of the community.

We chose a brick setting in downtown Bismarck that provided contrast and an appropriate backdrop to meet my client’s needs. These headshots are more modern and unconventional that a traditional studio setting, perfect for a young professional. I call these a cinematic headshot due to the background’s contrast and dynamic range, which offers a wide gamut of rich color tones in the composition. And contrary to most outdoor photography, the technique utilized to create these has more in common with a studio session than a natural light session.
