Homemade Vs Professional Headshots

Homemade Vs Professional Headshots.


There are so many people in need of the business headshot for their website or social media. Some of them know exactly they need a professional headshots but there are some of us who just love doing everything themselves (hello ‘selfie’ people:) So is it worth it doing your ‘professional headshots’ at home?

The answer is no. You might get a decent looking headshot at home, assuming you have a good camera or you are expert using your smartphone camera and have good eye for lighting and composition. Then comes online research for posing, clothing ideas and so on. You can later apply some filters to the photo to smooth the skin, brighten your eyes, etc. Is the result going to be your best look? Try it and see for yourself. Good luck.

Now, consider the time that will go into research, setting everything up and countless retakes of your homemade headshot. Is that time worth it in the end? Why not spend that time with your family and friends, or working on your business?
