Clothing should not distract from your head.
Tip 1. Wear appropriate clothing for a shoot like a black or white tank top.
Tip 2. Hang up a black or brown blanket for the background.
Tip 3. Add a little sparkle for some bling!! But not too much!
Tip 4. Make sure the picture is taken close to your face.
Tip 5. Hair usually looks better down, in a soft curl.
Why do you need a headshot? A headshot is used for many important auditions such as an acting audition or a modeling audition ect…… you never know when you might need it. This is a shot I used to audition for "Tarzan" and "Cinderella." It doesn't have to be professional when you are just starting. You might want someone with a nice camera to take the picture though. My neighbor came over to my house to take this one.
