MudRatz Sailing Team - Headshot

This was down last year for the MudRatz offshore sailing team. Had to use a laundry room at the marina that was less than 10 ft x 10 ft. Use my octa behind the subject sitting on top of a washing machine to get a white background. The dog was owned by one of the team members so I said let's grab an image of the dog too.


A quick shot from a walk with my fiancee in a local park. Late sunset, nothing but natural light. Canon 5D MK III, 85mm f/1.2L II @ f/1.8.

Practicing Lighting

Hi guys,
I am new to the group and this whole headshot photography thing, i was practicing with some lighting and retouching last night. (when you have no one else to get in front of the camera, why not use yourself). anyway these are the best pictures i got.

i would appreciate any feedback in how i can improve, either as a model...

Feed back very much appreciated.

disclaimer: I have never done head shots before. VERY new to the photography game and do not have expensive gear.
HOWEVER. I'm passionate and would love to hear any constructive feedback. You do not have to be nice just to be nice, that's not what I'm here for. ;)
Thanks so much!

Natural Beauty

Using natural lighting, we explored the end of day lighting and enjoyed the last rays of the day.
Shot with my Nikon and a vintage Vivitar 135mm prime.

Thanks to Marina Gipps for modeling for me. Resubmitted after some good feedback from FStopper users.

Feedback on Actor Headshot Session

Hey guys,

I've recently been trying out some new techniques both with lighting and editing, and I'm excited to get some feedback. Not entirely sure on the background color, but I was kind of digging the texture. General notes or specific notes are appreciated!
