WIN a free headshot course valued at $495
So many actors want to update their headshots, but can't in lockdown, or simply can't afford a professional photographer due to current financial pressures.
In order to help our creative community, I'm offering the chance for 5 lucky winners to learn how to take their own professional headshots with whatever camera device they have available. Be it DSLR, a low budget basic point and shoot, or even a phone camera.
This will be a skill that you can use in the future to quickly update your headshots with interim photos when you change your look, or when you need to show off a new character look for a last minute casting. Or perhaps you just want to learn how to take self portraits like a pro.
Even if you don't have any skills with photography, you will learn all of the trade secrets that headshot photographers use in order to capture a great headshot.
What you will learn;
Posing and camera angles
Lighting golden rules and DIY tricks.
Styling and use of colour/costumes
Choosing locations and backgrounds
Creating characters/looks to suit your castability
Tips for editing colour and lighting using free or very affordable software programs
Here's what you need to do...
1. Take your best self portrait and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org
2. Include your full name
3. Your current location
4. And what camera you used
The 5 winners will be chosen based on their creativity and ingenuity.
Here are some key factors to incorporate whilst taking your self portrait for this competition;
It doesn't have to be the most professional and polished photo, but a portrait that clearly shows who you are as an actor/character.
So get snapping!
