A couple of weeks ago, I spent an hour working with Alison to create a professional head shot for her new business. We had hoped to do the shoot at the Oxford Union (lots of options with very different light and great background options – see another pro head shot shoot I did there here), but access was limited that day, so after a bit of head scratching, we headed to the newly redone Ashmolean Museum. The Museum is worth checking out purely for its light and architecture, let alone its contents – and after trying some shots in different places, we found the light we wanted on the steps outside the cafe – fantastic bright white light, plus bit of interest created by the diagonals of the hand rails. Great to identify another reliable location in the town centre (ideas for new ones always welcome – just drop me a line ). Results below, and thanks Alison for a fun shoot, and for following me round the museum!
