New Headshots

Today I got new headshots taken. I am feeling a bit indifferent to them (which is not at all a reflection on the photographer or my experience today)...I think I am just in a PLACE right now. Thoughts anyone?

I think they're very beautiful. 3,4,and 5 are my favorites. The lighting is really nice and you look pure and beautiful.

They look really good! I like #1 the best.

Number Five has my vote. I like the way it's framed, and the blue thing in the background adds an ethereal touch.

I have to agree on #5- they are gentle and beautiful, all of them, but 5 is my fav.

I did really like the laughter and whimsey in your old ones, too... that was nice.

Britt said...

5 is my favorite too.

Who did them for you? I think I like your older one more- you look pretty in the new ones, but they don't have much pizazz.

Kage,

I like them all - you evoke a different mood with each shot. The new tops look much better on you than in the catalog photos. And your hair looks great - all in all, a very successful shoot, don't you think?

It goes without saying that you look beautiful in all of them. But what is the "mood" you are trying to capture with this ONE picture? #2 feels very commercial to me - if that's what you need, this one may work. #3 "reminds" me the most of you - I see Kristy in that. #4 you look very pretty and VERY young. #5 I'm on the fence, can't decide...

My favorite is#3. I think the color would be nice a bit more intense so there is more contrast. I like the body language and "real" look you have. kj

I like 3 the most, with 1 being a close second. Good luck deciding! I wish my question for today was "Of all the pictures were I look gorgeous, which one makes me look the MOST gorgeous?" :)

I'm totally with chloe on this. Every single one is beautiful but evokes a different message. And I am not sure which message you need to send right now to get the jobs you want to get. Definitely get some professional advice (which I am sure you will).
And your hair does look great.

You look great but honestly, none of them really stand out to me like some of your other pictures?....This is definitely NOT intended as a knock on you, just an opinion!

Number three is my fave! You look really great in all- I think they all seem more geared for modeling than acting...maybe because your last ones seemed more character-ish and these are more PRETTY? I am not sure! But I think you are doing more of those kinds of jobs right now anyway- right?

I agree with your friends that none of them stands out and tells me who you are. You have a great, charming personality and these don't show that. #3 is my choice of the selection because it shows your body a bit and seems the most natural. But I wonder why you shyed (sp?) away from actually showing us the beautiful endearing smile you have. The trick is to get in the door, then wow them with talent. You want to say you are fun and easy to work with. Not, I'm a serious actor.

oh....what great comments all of you. The headshot is such a mystery isn't it? I will like these photos if someone who is interested in representing me likes the photos.

We were going for less modely, more actory and leaning toward soapy. So, who knows if we really achieved it. Those editing with me were two photographers and the makeup artist. I don't think they liked #2, but I did b/c it was one of the few that reminded me of my personality. I am sure no one will want me to get it printed. I will let you know what I end up printing. Thanks for your input.

Yuck, did you get a troll?

I liked them all, but number 5 shows your features more... You look so young and fit and beautiful in all of them..... they are all really nice.

I have nothing to do with the industry, clearly, so what do I know?

Kage said...

bek, no troll, just a topic that I don't think is appropriate for this blog.
