My friends Nate and Ashley are starting a real estate business and didn't want to use some bush league pictures for their website and marketing materials so they asked me to do their headshots. If you own a business, don't be a jabroni and go get some professional photos taken!
This was my first attempt at doing headshots. My friend, Dalfa, needed some and asked me if I would do them for him. Up for the challenge, I pulled out three speedlights, set them up in the living room, and got to work. As usual, the hardest part was being able to pull natural expressions out of the subject.
Lighting setup: Key light on a stand, up & camera right with a shoot-through umbrella. Second light pointed at background. Third light behind and pointed toward subject . Reflector down & camera left for a little fill light.
