Before the big day, do some research to study other headshots that you like. What do you find most appealing about them? How is the actor standing, and what is he or she wearing? Taking the time to understand what you like (or what you don’t) about a headshot can go a long way in helping you get the precise look that you’re after. Also think about these questions: what roles do you go out for? What types do you fit? What colors, textures, styles work best for you?
A lot of what captures people is the eyes and, unlike your ability to move in front of a film or TV camera to convey emotions, your headshot will rely heavily on what we see you thinking about and feeling in your eyes!
