This is the last image in the series and the last headshot for now. I hope you’ve all enjoyed the journey as much as I have enjoyed sharing it. Of course I wanted to leave you with a joyous shot. Something to lift your spirits after a long or difficult work week.

Something to revitalize you as you go into your well-deserved weekend off from work. And if you’re working the weekend then, something to help you power through it!

Fun with gels- Week 2, Day 1

We’re back and continuing the series we started last week. I realized something after I posted the images last week. I have to edit my headshots with a higher degree of scrutiny if I want them to look as polished as my full lenght portraits.

I started out doing headshots and left them behind for awhile. I know the level to which I used to edit my older shots and I told myself it was no longer necessary. For full-length shots, that’s absolutely true.

For these shots I’m going to show you this week, there has been quite a lot of time put into editing. More so than even last week’s shots.

Anyway… enjoy! ๐Ÿ™‚

First off, Happy Friday!! ๐Ÿ™‚

I wanted to round out the week with a high-energy shot. A mood, color and expression to lift your moods as you go into your weekends. How’d I do? What does this shot make you feel? Does the yellow boost your energy a little bit? Is the expression worthy of a “Hanif Williams Photography- Friday” post? ๐Ÿ™‚

Oh yes.. We’re doing more gel shots and they’re not going to all be happy and whimsical lol..

Different colors, different lighting, different expressions/moods.

I wanted to push myself and see what kinds of mood I could illustrate by mixing the lighting styles, background colors and facial expressions. What’s your take on the image I posted before two days ago? What’s your take on this one?
