This afternoon was spent back in the studio shooting a formal portrait for Lindsay Andrews. This image is required for her Linkedin profile and other related business use.
As this was a corporate portrait I changed my background from the usual white to a mid-grey. I also positioned a light behind Lindsay which fired onto the background to create the lovely soft white halo effect around her head and shoulders. This technique produces nice separation from the background, highlights the subject and adds a note of fomality to the finished portrait.
