Headshot: Commercial

Here is an example of a commercial headshot. A few days ago I got to shoot the lovely Jennifer Wenger. She wanted a simple natural commercial headshot.

The full frame image we settled on was clean, simple and full of personality. I still needed to work on the image.

The first and obvious retouching was cleaning up all the sensor dust from the camera. Then I decided to retouch some of the distracting blemishes and clean up under the eyes a little.

After cleaning up the image a little the final step was to crop the image to bring more attention to Jennifer.

The final result is a beautiful, natural looking headshot.
