Photo Tip: Head Shot Backgrounds

My man Luke James is an upcoming artist that you need to hear. He needed some promo shots and a CD cover so we headed downtown to make it happen. Remember that I don’t just hope for the best….I plan my shoots.

This head shot would have been fine with a plain background but I wanted to do something a little extra. Notice how the open spaces in the wall go out in an angle and not just horizontally. It gives some depth to the image and a little personality. Remember to always consider your background when photographing a person. Don’t just put someone in front of your “background” just because you think it looks cool. You should be able to tell how the background enhances your image.
