About This Shot – Stylish Bristol Press Shot

June 4, 2019

About this headshot photographed in Bristol, I love it. It was taken in an office breakout booth/meeting area next to the window. A spot that was crying out for a photograph to be taken in it.

After humping my kit from the carpark, up the stairs and into this Bristol office all I ended up using was one camera and a reflector.

The daylight was delicious and this little sofa/booth was nice and dark which just had the perfect look. THE PERFECT LOOK.

The exposure was set to capture the light on the face, keeping the backdrop nice and dark, so that all the focus is on the person and less of a distraction behind.

The overall look is a pretty stylish headshot that doubles a great press shot too. Have a look at the alternative photograph below, which is shot at the same time in the same place.

This photograph works too but in a different way. You’ll notice that the exposure and the framing are different. There’s less of that dramatic calmness, instead it’s a super relaxed, natural looking portrait that also works as a headshot or press shot.

It’s a great shot but the first photograph is better (in my opinion) because it stands out as a distinct image that projects confidence. As much as the second image is a lovely shot, the first image creates more of a mood.

Having said all that, photography is subjective so have a look at both images and decide for yourself, which do you prefer?
