St Louis Headshots | Effective Photography Tip

Many people seek high quality headshots each year because of the many ways that they can be used in both personal and professional areas of their lives. Headshots are used by business and talent professionals, including executives, actors, actresses, models, and many others who work in professional careers. While corporate headshots are popular, those for the regular population are also becoming more so. Many people are getting professional headshots to use on their social media sites, dating sites, blogs, and other such online mediums.

To dress for a slimming effect, remember: darker colors are slimming; light colors are not.  Solid colors are slimming; bold patterns are not.  A single color from head to toe (i.e. a suit) is slimming.  Vertical lines are slimming; horizontal lines are not. This can apply to pleats as well as prints.  The v-neck shape is slimming. This is achieved by the cut of a sport coat, or the v-neck opening in a shirt or sweater.  Single-breasted jackets are more slimming than double-breasted.  If you’ll be standing for a full-length portrait, high heels are slimming—as are clothes that are well tailored rather than too loose or too tight.
