How To Use Digital Backgrounds for Headshots in Photoshop

In this tutorial, I show you step-by-step how I add digital backgrounds to headshot images in Photoshop. Digital backdrops are such a great way to add variety and interest to your headshot and branding sessions. You don’t have to worry about getting permits for locations, what the weather will be like, or if there are too many other people on-site to get a nice clean background. Just photograph your client in the comfort of your studio using natural or studio lighting and then add any background you desire during post-production editing! Not sure what the best background for headshots is? No problem! You can try out different variations to find the perfect headshot background that suits your client’s wardrobe and matches their brand.
