Thinking about colour in a headshot - Sian Edwards, Conductor

Colour is much more challenging in a headshot so range of tones need to be limited.  

Aside from being one of the nicest people around, Sian has ageless skin and wonderful coppery hair.  The colours chosen for backgrounds make the most of her colouring, they're either complimentary or contrasting colours or, in the case of the last shot, no colour at all.
