Recently I have been shooting a bunch of headshots for various reasons. However after looking at them all together, I'm wondering what actually constitutes a "headshot". Several of the photos here were shot during full shoots, while some were set up and shot for headshots, period. Typically they are all pretty much one light and one or two reflectors tucked in tight. Shooting this type of photo I really like using a single Elinchrom lite in a large octabank about 90 degrees to one side and a relflector just out of the frame oppopsite the lite and maybe a second reflector, particularly for women, up under the chin. It is nearly impossible to get a bad headshot with an octabank! My question I guess is when does a portrait become a headshot, or is it just different terminology for the same thing? Anyhow, here are a few more from recent weeks. Let me know what you think about them please.
