Then and Now
I think it was Amanda I was talking to about this. But I said I would post a then-and-now headshot comparison so you can see that *everyone* starts somewhere.
The first headshot is of my girlfriend Lindsay. The second is of my wife Lindsay! Took the first one I think before I officially signed up? Second one was last year.
So if you're not feeling it or not seeing it or feeling like you're *never* going to be making headshots that are up to snuff you are *wrong.* Keep going. Keep practicing. Keep posting. If you're just starting out you're gonna make mistakes. You'll wreck skin tones and have 'em ahead of light convergence and on and on.
