Last month I was hired to shoot headshots for Chris Souza and Tanisha Souza, owners of Tardus Financial Services. Tardus Wealth Strategies provides their clients with interesting approaches to generate passive income. They have lots of different methods from lending to those looking for loans to real estate investing. I am actually considering joining their program, it's great for entrepreneurs and for people who would like to make money while they sleep. Chris and Tanisha were super fun and chill to work with. They are so smart when it comes to investing and have such laid back personalities.
Lens: I packed lightly for this assignment. I shot both Chris and Tanisha with my 135mm Canon f/2 lens. This lens is a great choice if you have enough space and good lighting. If space is tight, I'd recommend shooting on the 100mm Canon Macro or the 85mm Canon lense. If you are new to shooting headshots, I'd recommend buying a 70-200mm f/2.8 and finding a particular focal length YOU like best. I recommend setting up and shooting a full session at 70mm, 85mm, 100mm, and 135mm. I personally like the 135mm or the 100mm focal lengths best. They seem to provide a nice perspective on the face.
Setup: For the setup, I simply put a whiteboard behind them as the backdrop and had them hold another whiteboard under their chin to fill in any unwanted shadows. I also had them sitting on a chair so I could shoot them at eye level and above eye level. That's it!
