Playbill Headshot

Discussion in 'People' started by Dramatapix®, Jul 7, 2007.

  1. Just had an opportunity to take some headshots for a young actress that I've worked with for many years. She just got cast in Spring Awakening on Broadway, and I have the pleasure of taking her headshots for the Broadway Playbill.

    Just wondering thoughts on which one you would use...

    i'd go for the first one, personally. best combination of lighting and expression, imo.

    They are all good, but I agree for a playbill, I would use #1.

    All three are wonderful, but I like #3 the most. I like the shadows, and the single catch light in the eyes. The pose also seems a little more natural. Just my $.02

    I think the first would be the best for a playbill. It is the closest to a typical NY Legit headshot of the bunch. The pnly thing that bothers me is that the eyes look a little dead to me I would have loved to see a little more light there to give them some life.

  6. Thanks all.... Alexandra went with number #1

    Dan~ Any suggestions on what I could do do in future shoots to get the eyes to have "more light"?

  7. PS: Now that I'll actually be published in a NYC Playbill, does that make my photography a "NYC legit headshot"? :wink:

    I also say #1 - I like her look best in that one.
  9. These are all excellent and she is a beautiful young lady. Another vote for #1.
  10. Thanks Anthony, Fred et al...

    Good shots

    For me #1-#3 I like the difference in lighting
  15. The first one would look great on a playbill.

    I love that musical... Can't wait to see it on broadway. Tell her congrats on getting the part from someone who she doesnt know. haha.

    I'd go with the first one. Everything seems to work together the best.
