CORPORATE HEADSHOT AND ENVIRONMENTAL PORTRAIT RETOUCHING
A LOOK INTO TORI SOPER PHOTOGRAPHYS’ POST-PRODUCTION PROCESS AND NATURAL RETOUCHING METHODS.
These days, it’s critical to have an awesome portrait that reflects confidence. With social media sites like Twitter and Facebook as well as LinkedIn and company websites, the online profile essentially replaces the business card. We have one chance in the digital world to make a fantastic, first impression and having a professional and approachable corporate portrait is a great start.
THE SELECTION PROCESS
Here is where I select the photographs from our session that not only reflect my best work but prove to be your most authentic images. The shots that are deleted will include duplicate or near-duplicate images, photos that do not reflect positively on the individuals featured, unflattering photographs and those shots that fail to measure up to my criterion for quality.
As seen in the samples below, the changes simply enhance the image as opposed to completely changing it except of course in the last example where the background color was modified to match the subjects’ suit jacket. The retouching for corporate headshots and environmental portraits that I apply are for the purpose of making each subject look their best so I do stay away from making drastic revisions that we see so much of these days. Simple fixes make us look like our genuine and best selves.
Keep in mind also that although there are plenty of fixes that post-production can provide, there are also a few simple things you can do to look your best for your corporate headshot or environmental portrait as well and you can find these recommendations here.
