Fall is an enchanting time of year. As the leaves fall and the ground becomes every color of gold, and burnt orange, it's no wonder we're obsessed with the season. From pumpkin-spiced everything to cute sweaters and everything in-between, what's there not to love about fall?
But, this season can be just as pivotal for professional success as it can be for unleashing whimsy. Not only is it great for the kind of pictures that dot your Instagram feed and Pinterest, but it can also be great for professional headshots or portraits.
Why Fall Is The Ideal Time To Get Your Professional Portraits Taken
Not every professional needs fall-inspired photographs, but they work beautifully for professionals in any creative industry or job. However, if you're wondering whether you should have your professional portraits or headshots taken this fall or wait for spring, here are some reasons that act as motivation to do it now.
1// Ideal Temperatures For Taking Photographs If you're going to be taking pictures in a more natural setting instead of a studio, fall is the ideal time to do it. It's not as hot as summer or as cold as winter, or as nasally as spring. The temperatures are just right - and nothing a warm sweater can't fix - especially in an area like Winston-Salem.
You won't have to worry about allergies because of spring pollen. Or deal with perspiration issues such as much and having your makeup melt, which common in summer. Or even worse, spend weeks nursing a cold because you spent a significant part of your day in freezing temperatures.
You can avoid all of the aforementioned and still get the most breathtaking corporate photographs in a natural setting if you take your photographs in fall.
2// Lovely Golden Tones There's a reason golden hour is so popular on Instagram and Pinterest and that's because the color complements most body shapes, skin tones, and even ages. The same can be said about Fall. With all the golden tones in nature, your pictures will certainly stand out.
3// Great Clothing and Makeup Options You don't have to go overboard to make a fall-inspired photograph look good. And the same can be said about professional headshots and portraits. Because of the array of hues and colors in the background you can keep things simple and understated. But, the fact that it's not that hot that you're limited to a few options is also a bonus. And with all different kinds of nude, bronzed and natural tones in a variety of popular makeup palettes your options won't be limited in that department either.
Overall, fall is probably one of the best seasons to take any kind of portrait or headshot.
