John Lavery - Headshots

John Lavery - Headshot 1
This is one of my favourite "smiling" photos from the headshot photo shoot John Lavery and I did last week. Given the choice between serious and smiling I prefer ones where the client is smiling.

I don't as a matter of course run any Photoshop actions on my photos. This one is an exception to the rule and I wanted to give the photo a little bump to make it pop. Additionally I don't usually put the talent's name on the actual photo but I had some extra space on the left, and I like it. I think the drop shadow under the text reinforces the depth of the photo, too.

It's important to notice Mr. Lavery did not choose this particular photo for his forthcoming book but selected another shot we did on location in his kitchen. I'll post that one later once I have some details of his book, published by the House of Anansi Press this fall.

Looks really good, John.
Character in focus & not effect.
