Best Studio Headshots Tips

1. Clothing

Given that studio headshots are primarily about professionalism, a business attire is the go-to option. For males, opt for a comfortable, well-fitting suit or blazer. Classic dresses are suitable for females, and keep jewelry to a minimum, if any.

Your color selection should also be minimalist. Solid neutrals are fitting for this kind of headshot, such as black, white, gray, or navy. Ensure they contrast with the background while keeping the focus on you.

2. Background or Backdrop

This aspect aligns with your outfit choice. Opt for either solid neutral colors that contrast with your attire—ensuring they don't distract the viewer. Use a backdrop with minimal patterns to add subtle visual interest to the headshot. However, be mindful not to overdo the patterns.

3. Pose

Continuing with the theme of simplicity, posing for a studio shot should feel natural. Stand with your back straight, shoulders relaxed, and offer a genuine smile; this will provide the best results.

A slight tilt of the body away from the camera adds intrigue to the headshot, but ensure you maintain direct eye contact with the camera. Eye contact is a powerful tool in human communication, as the headshot is meant to be perceived by the viewer.

4. Lighting

This is a significant topic, as it's one of the primary reasons people opt for studio headshots, because a studio setup gives a vibe of seriousness and intentionality. There are numerous lighting options available in a studio, each suitable for different types of headshots. Here is a summary of the types of lights commonly used in a studio:

  1. Soft lights: These lights produce diffused light, creating even illumination on the subject. They are gentle and do not create sharp shadows, closely mimicking natural outdoor light (not directly under the sun).
  2. Key light: This serves as the primary light source and can be positioned to the side of the subject to create shadows on the opposite side. It can also be used to highlight facial expressions.
  3. Fill light: This is a secondary light source, often positioned opposite to the key light, to reduce harsh shadows.
  4. Backlight: This is a light source placed behind the subject to create a halo effect and add more separation between the subject and the background.

Frequently asked

How take studio headshots with AI?
Arrow down icon
We made the whole process as easy and streamlined possible. After the purchase, you will need to upload 8–10 selfies so AI can start working. You can create them right here on our website with our own AI Photobooth feature. No app downloads are needed; everything works in your browser. Alternatively, you can always just select and upload photos manually.
Why do you need so many selfies?
Arrow down icon
The current state-of-the-art AI needs a handful of your photos to be able to generate professional headshots with your face for the best fidelity, quality, and precision. With this approach, you receive the most realistic headshots on the market from the comfort of your own home. Soon, only a single photo will be enough.
What are requirements for manually uploaded photos?
Arrow down icon
AI needs high-quality head and shoulders profile photos of you — no blurry, retouched, or photos with other people. Photos with sunglasses, hats, headphones, or other objects covering your face will result in bad results.
How do you use my photos?
Arrow down icon
We use them only to generate AI headshots. We will delete all your data immediately upon request; otherwise - your photos are deleted automatically after 7 days. AI models are deleted automatically after 30 days. We have these timings only to be able to create new, re-generate, or otherwise fix your results through support requests.
Is it safe to process my photos with AI?
Arrow down icon
We don't sell, re-sell, train our AI, or otherwise use your photos in any way that is not related to providing an AI Hedshots service to you. The SnapHeadshots company is based in Europe and complies with the local personal data regulations. Your photos are stored in an encrypted environement, separate from your account and without your personal data.
Do you have specific solution for larger teams?
Arrow down icon
We have streamlined our processes as much as possible, so anyone can create perfect headshots easily. However, we still need to adapt this process for HR and managers alike, so you can just send several shortlinks to your 10, 100, or even 1000 employees, and they can complete the process fast and easily. Stay tuned for updates; they are coming very soon.
