This shoot was really cool…not only because we created a pair of really great business headshots for the client…but also because the client also plays guitar.

I worked on the technical set-up for my our headshots so that we can create pleasing tones in the blue family that aren’t overpowering and harsh. Bill wore a great suit/tie combo and we shot on the blue background first then switched to my earth-tone (my favorite). It was a difficult decision to narrow down the selection to these two images…and in the end Bill selected the image with the blue background. I agreed with his selection but was pleased that we had 12-15 images to choose from after the first round of culling.
Oh yeah…I also think Bill is a lot better guitar player than I am!
