Headshot-as-a-Service was a success, but I have to say it didn’t quite turn out the way I wanted. Finding a proper location was hard, getting the lighting right (which I don’t think I did) and without any advertising except my own blog posts and tweets, the turnout wasn’t quite what I had expected.
