Style Guide For Men: if possible, please wear a solid coloured suit or something with a light pin stripe. Please try and avoid any busy suit, shirt and tie patterns and bring an alternative tie. Ensure that the knot is evenly and pushed up to the shirt collar and that the tie falls straight down the button line.
Style Guide For Women: if possible, please have simple hair and makeup and bring your lipstick for a fresh reapply before your picture is taken. If possible, do not wear scarves or over bearing jewellery and feel free to bring a different jacket option.
Eyewear: if you wear glasses as part of your normal day your photo will be taken with them on but there is an option for photographs to be taken with them on and off.
Background Alternative (on location): Backgrounds should only been seen as an accompanying element within the photograph and we believe that the emphasis should be with the subject we are photographing. We can introduce a background at shooting time by utilising elements within the environment, such as the example
Hair, Make-up and Personal Grooming: We can offer a professional make over before we shoot. Please select this an an added option when you book your pre paid photography session with us.
Having your hair cut, styled or just trimmed before you have your profile/headshot photograph taken is always a great idea and Ladies, if you choose to do your own hair and makeup, keep it light and fresh and also bring a few different lippy options so we can choose the best colour under our lighting conditions. And for the Men, we have a very light translucent powder that we can apply, very sparingly of course, which will help with the shin and give you a more even complexion.

RETOUCHING SKIN SIMPLIFIED – includes High Frequency, Channel Masking, Non Destructive Dodging and Burning WORKSHOP PRICE: $125.00 +GST Date: Thursday 2nd of November 2017 Workshop Hours: 6.00pm to 8.00pm Come and spend some time with the 2016 AIPP Professional Photographer of the Year Lisa Saad and 2016 & 2017 AIPP Victorian Professional Photographer of the Year and learn about how easy Skin Retouching can be. High Frequency Skin Retouching Dual Layer Skin Retouching Channel Masking Non Destructive Dodging and Burning Frequency Separation: Frequency separation helps make retouching a portrait easier in Photoshop. Frequency separation works because it allows you to separate the texture of an image from the tone and color. When retouching you can focus on just the texture or the skin beneath it. Channel Masking: also called a mask or selection—is an extra channel added to an image; it stores selections as grayscale images. You can add alpha channels to create and store masks. A channel mask can accurately select wisps of hair, tufts of fur mask out easily products on a white background. Non Destructive Dodging and Burning in Photoshop: The Dodge tool and the Burn tool lighten or darken areas of the image. These tools are based on a traditional darkroom technique for regulating exposure on specific areas of a print. Photographers hold back light to lighten an area on the print (dodging) or increase the exposure to darken areas on a print (burning). If you want to learn about some skin retouching techniques and how they can fit into your everyday workflow, then this is the workshop is for you! Light refreshments will be served!
