A lot of our clients are moving towards the environmental portrait, but some are stuck in their heads that the only way to take a portrait is on a backdrop. There are so many more options these days instead of in a studio. If you're a company with a unique office setting, consider using it as a backdrop. We did just that with Dan at Effin Amazing near Downtown Orlando. They run an agency that focuses on growth through marketing automation. Check out how we utilized their space for some great executive headshots.
These are some examples of a portrait on a white backdrop. It's a great option if you're going to be cutting out the images to place on a colored background or layer into something in Photoshop. It has some other benefits too - it's simple. Sometimes if you're looking for something clean that focuses solely on the person, this is the best way to go. Hopefully seeing both will give you some ideas on how to plan your next headshot.
