So, You’re welcome. HA!
I’ve been looking forward to posting some of the images from Bethany’s session since we shot them.
We got such a mix of looks and the time flew by. Which keeps the energy level high and the smiles fresh.
I do love it when I can grab a pair of sunglasses out and the image just pops! I think that blue is Bethany’s color.
She really is a classic.
What a nice surprise to see that one of the images from Chrissi and John’s engagement session we did in Boston’s North End was used in their Wedding announcement in the New York Times.
I have to admit that this is the first time ( that I know of .. HA!) that one of my images has been printed in the Times.
I wonder if millions of Times readers around the world paused when they saw the image and said ” What an awesome photographer that Dan Busler is” ? Well, I can dream that it happened.
One of the first things I do before an actor’s headshot session is to check out their FaceBook page. I want to see how they smile when they’re hanging with their friends, how they dress when they’re out at a club and the way that they naturally stand.
I learned over the years that actors get cast for the part that they look right for before they’ll get cast for a part that they try to look right for.
But I have to get on the subject of this post! Kelly Newman. The actress and director.
Kelly has a great smile and a killer ” I’ll kick your butt” stare … which I told her is my favorite look. It’s so important to show both confidence [without looking mean] and still be approachable.
And Kelly has that look down without even trying.
So remember to spend some time working with your expressions in a mirror before your headshot session. You need to know how it feels when you smile just the way you want. The smile that will get you an awesome part!
