This past weekend Carmen, a Ryan Financial Services Employee, came to our Vaughan Studio for new headshots. Carmen selected a colour backdrop in Scarlet. Her portraits turned out beautifully. Her matching red lipstick and nails and contrasting white shirt make for a well put together and eye-catching business headshot.

Bold backdrop colours can be intimidating for some, but as you see here, with a little planning, it can help you stand out. When choosing a bright backdrop, there are a few things to consider. Here is a quick rundown on how to approach your selection of a bold backdrop colour:

Consider the undertone of your skin and hair.

If you have warm undertones like gold, terracotta or yellow, we suggest picking a warm-toned or neutral colour for your headshot.

If you have cool undertones like pink, blue, green, we suggest choosing cool-toned or neutral backdrop colour for your portrait.

If you are having a difficult time figuring out which is best think about what colours you look best in and wear most often, selecting a backdrop in that colour family will likely be a good match.

Do you have a colour scheme for your marketing?

Selecting a colour within that scheme will allow for more continuity.

Are you using the portrait for LinkedIn?

If you are on the job hunt and using LinkedIn, we suggest doing a quick search of your goal position, what do others have? Find a colour that suits you but is different than the norm; your profile will stand out if viewed in list summaries.

If you are having a difficult time determining what backdrop will make your portrait stand out, feel free to contact us for help.
