First, consider your branding and color scheme. Using this pallet, choose a few different outfits and accessories that will create a visually cohesive look and match your brand. Try pulling in a range of outfits, from professional to casual, so you have a variety to choose from.
Position yourself in front of a window or open door to soak in all of that natural light. Use a window ledge to prop up your iPhone, set a self-timer, and get ready to pose! If you don’t have easy access to natural light, consider getting a tripod with an attached ring light – two helpful features, all in one.
Your location will help viewers visualize where you conduct your business, will clue them into your personality, and where you like to spend most of your time. If you work out of your barn or home office, consider having your photoshoot there!
Make sure your physical surroundings aren’t taking away from the overall photo. Remove objects that may cause distraction in the background, or consider moving to a location where the surroundings add to the overall image, rather than cause a visual distraction.
You don’t always have to be in the center of the frame in your photos. Take some photography risks, and create an interesting and well-balanced photo by positioning yourself more to the right or left of the frame.
