Peter Hurley is THE headshot photographer of NY. He isreally very good. I listened to several YouTube videos this morning and I could always learn something new. One could think, it’s only the head…… but yeah, it’s the head and it’s an important body part with endless possibilities to express something.
I took the recommended body posture:
– forehead forward
– the shoulder that is closer to the camera is a bit more down
– the elbows are back
– the shoulder blades move together.
Then I wanted to entertain myself. I had music on and posed. I want an exciting expression without exaggerating, I thought.
This is the goal when so close to the face: The expression must convince.
