This is a business head shot of Ashley. Thanks to the feedback I have been receiving from Ilona Smyth, I now know why this would be more a business headshot rather than an actor head shot. Ilona is the casting director at the premier casting company in the national capital, Smyth Casting. I recently met with her to discuss what casting directors are looking for in a good headshot. This has been an eye opening experience to see what casting directors consider good head shots and the different looks Ottawa actors need to be successful at getting the roles available in Ottawa. I just have to say shooting head shots has been way harder then anything I have ever done photographically, even though previously I had thought it was the easiest. It is much easier to get good images when you can involve body parts to fill in negative space, but when you limit it to one's ability to just their lips, eyes and mouth, it becomes very difficult.
