#9 SAY NO TO THE NECKLACE!
Let’s ease off with the jewellery altogether.
Well, because your headshot session is about YOU, not your prized possessions. We’re focusing on capturing your personality. It’s your time to shine. We don’t want to dazzle or distract the viewer with bling baby!
See how the necklace in the image takes the viewer’s focus away from the subject’s collar bone? How the ear-ring takes the viewer’s focus away from her jaw-line?
I rest my case, your honour!
So leave the bling at home.
If you decide to wear ear-rings to your headshot session, then the safest bet is to opt for small, neat studs.
Now repeat after me……….
YOU are going to be the star of your headshot session, not your accessories!
