Wakefield commercial photographer: I was back on site at Beaumont Legal today to shoot around 60 corporate headshots for the new website which they are currently building. The brief was to get some three quarter portraits and headshots against a plain background and to try and get people looking relaxed yet professional. So, after scouting their offices on the Paragon Business Park, I decided to use a white wall at one end of a downstairs conference room. This gave me plenty of space for a three light set-up and enough working distance to shoot with a 70-200mm, a favourite lens for many of my portraits under studio conditions. Using the 70-200mm means I get great perspective and also I have a good working distance which immediately helps put the subject at ease rather than being in their face with a shorter focal length. I’ve knocked up this montage to give an idea of what we shot and how I guided the staff through the poses to come up with a great set of images for the website.
