Photography is both an art and science
, beyond the skills necessary with the camera, and a long list of photographic equipment as well is an understanding of how to use light both broad and sublime, great photographers need an artistic eye and the ability to be creative under pressure.

Technically, the most important part of any headshot is that it must actually look like you.
