I'm really happy with the way they turned out, especially since it shows me with a completely different hairstyle than I normally wear. I'm pretty confident that choosing one of these as a headshot will get me more modeling work for clients that are seeking ethnic models with a more "natural" hairstyle. So we'll see how that goes.
I arrived at the photographer's studio at 9:30am. Of course I was there early, as is my habit, so I sat in my car and listened to music until it was time for me to go in. At first I was hesitant about doing the shoot because it was 40 something degrees outside and we had agreed to do the shoot outdoors.
First off, I do NOT do well with cold (haha) so I wasn't sure if I would even be able to function in those temperatures and pull off looking classy and comfortable all at the same time. Thankfully by the time my hair, makeup and wardrobe was taken care of, the sun was shining brightly and warmed things up. It was definitely a blessing for me!
Mina, the photographer of MND Images (who was also my hair and makeup artist), drove us to a small, secluded park/garden area that wasn't too far from the studio. It was one of those places that you would never have known was there otherwise.
We didn't use any special lighting equipment and simply used the natural settings and sun. We shot at four different locations and were done in about an hour...definitely my favorite kind of shoot! Me and Mina worked well together and had a great time. I look forward to working with her again.
Below are some of my favorite shots:
So what do you think of my new hairdo? :-)
