    Her agent needed a shot to go on the agencies website. File size and high resolution not only not required, it is not allowed. The photo would end up being about 4×5″ maximum on her own page at 72dpi. When doing modeling or fashion, yes larger and sharper and higher resolution is necessary. Use a Hassie if you can afford the $70K. But that’s total overkill for this purpose to serve 1) a specific acting headshot need in the digital age and 2) basic simple training for amateurs.

    this video should come down. Almost content free. I can’t believe I’m watching them just to laugh at how dumb they are. Try Adorama 1 on 1 for a sample of how-to videos should be.

    3.2? Most entry level DSLRs are atleast 10-12, even my Suedo DSLR nikon P90 has 12MP The lowest I have seen is 6.2.

    Digital has revolutionized the photography industry. If we were still using film for cinematography and photography both industries would be a minuscule portion then what they are today.

    everyone needs to lighten up on their neg comments…photogs always think their way is the best. give me a break. if this guy is happy w/ the results, how can it be wrong?  digital has made photography a joke anyway – everyone thinks they are a photog b/c they can push a button and see an image on their camera.

    I’d like to comment on something he said. As a photographer and an actress, you need 2 head shots………..one for theater and one for film. Theatrical is more serious…film there is more smile. And NO straight up in the face shots! Always to an angle of some sort.

    me too!

    There’s some good information here. Thanks ExpertVillage for helping me with my Headshot preparation! =)

  21. ThePhotoshopGuy1 says:

    The photography and lighting is easy. It’s talking with/getting to know/posing the model that troubles me.

  22. Dan Terry says:

    Agreed, with that camera it’s modest. A modest 3.2 megapixels which for a modeling headshot would be unacceptable. Kaitlin is an actress and she needed images web based submissions, her agent’s (TAG agency) web and print portfolios, and for 8×10 handouts at casting sessions.

    This was a simple how to for amateurs wanting to learn and they are not likely to have professional level cameras. I used the prosumer Olympus as it’s more like what they may have access to.

    i was talking about the picture file itself. but thats interesting that you need a business shot in germany i never knew that…. and your right for those types of photos it doesn’t make much of a difference. I guess I’m just used to working on projects where the files have to be big and i have to get really precise control. but that is not needed in every instance.

  25. Marion Haßold says:

    of the digital file or of the video file? mh i do not know how old the video really is…of course a full frame format is best for retuch but if customers usually buy a photo in 4x6cm they will not see a big difference…this is not portrait technique, it is passport/business shot technique. in germany, business photos are required to get a job, i know in other countrys you need no photos like that…for portrait full frame chips surely is the better choice.
