This week's topic is “Make a head shot”. This is probably part of a huge part of youre pictures. If you have a person there, you also have a head shot. But this is probably the area we all can gain the most if we can improve it. Great pictures of peoples head, makes you popular. For a great inspirational input, watch this video: http://www.youtube.com …hn8C1HqCI&feature=related
To get a nice white background head shot you can do this. Go out find a great big window without direct sunlight, get someone to stand next to the window, put a big construction light to shine the background (overexpose it)... shoot. Or use a tripod and shoot youreself.
That would give you something like this:
