For the past few days I’ve been working on my resume for a job that I really want. One part of the application asked for a full body shot and a head shot. That’s no big deal right? I mean, I take lots of photo’s for the blog and to practice my craft. Yet I’ve never taken some for serious purposes, if you know what I mean.
I’ve been fretting over these pictures and whether or not I have the skills required to pull off what I envision in my head. Yesterday, I just went ahead and took the pictures and edited them. I know they’re not as good as other people could do and I suppose I could have hired someone to take them for me, but that would have defeated the purpose.
I need to learn.
I want to improve and I can’t do that if I’m outsourcing my work.
Of course I wouldn’t talk about something I’ve worked on and not add it! You can view them below. Feel free to stroke my ego a little bit. I sure could use it about now.
Please note: they are intentionally plain and basic. I was after a more relaxed “school photo” kind of feel.
Here’s the full body:
And here’s the head shot:
Of course I will list what I am wearing and the poses that I used. Both photo’s were taken in my studio at my tiny little home.
