Final Version - Headshot

This is the final version that I chose for the back of the book cover. 


When the photos were ready, Victor and I were called to set an appointment for the viewing. We arrived at the studio. The lights were dim, and there was soft music playing. 


Jeremy directed us to the viewing area and started the slide show of all the photos. He requested that we view first the entire set, then watch again with pen in hand to mark the ones we liked the best.


It was quite difficult. I had a general idea of what I wanted for the book cover. Something serious, but not too serious. Something professional, but not too stodgey. A warm, welcoming feel to it. And of course, a shot that made me look good. That's important.


We narrowed it down to five or six, then three, then two, then one. Both Victor and I agreed that this one photo met all the requirements. We were happy with the results.


All in all it was a good experience, and probably a good choice to have headshots done on a cruise. The sun had given me rosy checks (though a bit difficult to see in black and white) and the cruise itself had put me in a relaxed state. Both good things. 


It had been nine months since my mother passed away, but the memory of her death was still heavy on my mind. It was good to have a moment away from it all. I knew that taking this photo put me one step closer to making this book a reality. It happened in the right time and in the right way.

    Undeniably believe that which you said. Your favorite reason seemed to be on the web the simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get irked while people consider worries that they just don't know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people could take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks
