    What particular colors and tops do you suggest to wear? A black tank top? A black t-shirt? Do you suggest a natural no make up look or minimum make up?

    I need a new headshot. These are good recommendations that I can think about. 🙂

    Great points Scott! I’m try to stick to solid colours that generally compliment me. It is tempting to go shopping when new headshots are due!

    Hey Scott, I do headshots ALL THE TIME. Good to know I’m actually doing what you recommend, even before watching your video. Good confirmation.
    Will you make a video on how to reduce the wrinkles or just look brilliant with lighting? I am often outside too when I make my videos in many different locations.
    Welcome to check out my channel too, so you can give feedback on my headshot. Love to learn!
