Why dark background headshots are worth considering
Dark background headshots can be the most powerful of all headshot styles. As with white background headshots the emphasis is still on the subject but the atmosphere is different, stronger stronger in many ways.
Dark backgrounds can add drama to headshot photographs and can be a very effective alternative to white backgrounds. Lighting on the subject has to be just right though. In a professional headshot the subject still has to look approachable, empathetic and professional and the choice of clothing is important.
Dark background portraits work best when people choose light colours or bold colours to wear. Sometimes though a dark suit with a white shirt can be just as effective.
