Morton Visuals TipsHighlighting Unique Personality in Headshots

Let’s face it — there’s nothing worse than a bland, soulless headshot. For a headshot to be successful, it should be memorable. And to be memorable, it needs to be filled with personality. At Morton Visuals, we believe in showing a little of the subject’s personality in their headshots. Here is a little inside look at how we infuse personality in headshots.

Personality in Headshots: Professional Tips and Tricks

Movement is Dynamic

Instead of having you sit in a frozen, unnatural position, we try to allow for some natural movement. This will help you to relax a bit and be yourself. Soon enough, some of your personality should trickle back into the photos. We usually have you standing, and may ask you to walk, turn, or even move your head. (Count on that last one!)

Read the Body Language

Body language is always a good indicator of how comfortable someone feels. However, if someone gets really comfortable, they’ll probably be slouching. So our directions may feel a bit unnatural, but trust us — it will look much better.

Make You Laugh

The camera picks up emotion better than most people. In order to make your photos look genuine, we try to make sure that the emotion is also genuine. Simply asking you to smile won’t do the trick. Instead we’ll entertain you with jokes from only the smartest first-graders! (Note: this picture wasn’t the final selection for this gentleman, but because it really shows his personality, he loved it enough to order it as an additional image for his friends and family.)

 

Highlight You in Your Environment

Nothing kills personality like a boring blue backdrop. While you may prefer this style for your team’s headshots, consider taking the headshots in a more natural location. We can bring a mobile photo studio to your location, complete with studio lighting and backdrops. But you can even set up the photos within the context of the office to create a scene that is true to life, and better establish your team and what they do.
