I was doing corporate headshots with lights and backdrop set up. The CEO approached me with a request.
Client: Don’t make me look bald.
I chuckled thinking he was joking because he only had a tiny bit of hair around his forehead. He didn’t laugh.
Client: What can you do to address this?
Ultimately we decided to crop tightly to the eyes so 2/3 of everyone’s faces were used.
Client: Is this just going to look like I’m trying to cover up the fact that I’m bald?
I can’t cover up the cover up, unfortunately.
