I had the joy of partnering with Leilu for headshots (they're auditioning for Julliard and the American Academy of Dramatic Arts, y'all)! and for some really rad Senior pics. In prep for shooting for their headshot, I started researching how actors prepare and what they hope comes across in their portrait. It's pretty tricky to have to have a 2-D image carry your energy across to the viewer all by itself, especially in print format. This one professional shot serves as your first introduction and the thing that makes them remember you. It has to show your energy as an actor, your uniqueness, and your ability to be cast. No big deal for an 8x10 print, right?
When we were done with the formal stuff, we got to shoot some senior pics, too. The robo arm was made by Leilu as part of their costuming work.
