Adding A Split Background Helps to Create A Compelling Portrait
A popular new item for commercial photographers who shoot a variety of subjects including corporate headshots is a product called V-Flats. This is essentially two 4x8 sheets of heavy foam core, black on one side and white on the other side, that are fastened together. These panels can be used in numerous ways to create different effects.
One way to use the panels to create a compelling black and white business headshot is to split the V-Flat panel into black and white panels to increase the overall contrast of the image. In some cases, like the image above, we'll add ratio to one side of the face to help create a more dramatic corporate headshot.
Some clients want a professional headshot that is somewhat more conventional with both sides of the face evenly lit. The aspect ratio used for the above shots is 16:9. This is also a bit more contemporary and a popular trend. Others may want a classic business portrait ratio of 8x10 like the image below.
