Trick #1 – Use different camera exposure settings

By learning how exposure works on your camera, you will have photos looking brighter with 0.5 to 2 stops underexposed in bright surroundings, and scenes appearing more clear with some overexposure. Just by simple tuning of the exposure level, you’ll create photos which may bring out different moods from people viewing it.

That’s why the quote “A Picture Says thousand Words” is extremely true indeed ! For begginers, try bracketing (i.e: Take an equivalent photos with different exposure levels) and take your favorite pick from them.

Trick #2 – Blur those photos in a creative way

By introducing some well-planned blur in photos, you’ll bring across certain important features, while using the remainder nearly as good complement, providing an overall nice touch. This will be accomplished with 2 basic types.

First type is depth-of-field blur. Varying the lens aperture between 0.4 to 1.4 can create a stunning , soft background blur which bring sharp focus to the topic within the foreground.

Second type is movement blur. Done by setting the camera exposure on shutter priority, and keep some time so on capture interesting streaks because the subject moves ahead of the camera.

Trick #3 – Create something out of nothing!!!

What does it means? This exercise encourages you to require a step back and rethink how you’ll take wonderful pictures with belongings you already encountered on a day to day.

Trick #4 – Take Unique Photos!!!

Try to avoid taking photos from already popular places where everyone else has taken before, it’ll not be fresh, and therefore the excitement is additionally much diminished. Try extreme photography (like: photography underwater), or it might be as easy as shooting through some thick glass for that 3D feel to add to your photo, or try shooting reflections of objects through water (works with lakes, rivers, and puddles.)

How To Start Your Own Photography Business?

Starting Your Own Photography Business

By: Matt Sloniker

When you are a child trying to decide the many ways you can make a living when you grow up, the advise your seniors consistently gave you? It was, “Do what you love to do and you will be happy.” and that must be true because when you do something you hate for a living your life is miserable, it truly won’t feel like working as much as it will feel like being played to play.

If you aspirations are to be a photographer, it is a smart idea to begin your own photography business. Yet, how to go about it? You see so numerous little photography businesses that appear to jump up from no place. What is the most ideal route for you to approach starting up your own business?

The main thing to consider when beginning a photography business is the how to start the business the right and legal way. You need a business that will last a long time so you need to plan it out right. So don’t buy into the “get rich quick” scams or books that guarantee they will spill the insider information of a successful photography business. There is no right or wrong way to do business other than what is needed to maintain any other business. To succeed you need to…

Take care of your obligations

Get your training/experience.

Learn from professionals.

Know your craft.

Organization

Networking

How to provide value to your clients.

You can achieve the most of these by going to class and working part or full time for another photography business. You may not like the possibility of more school. However, your photography business will be about something beyond cameras and photo shoots. You have bookkeeping standards to understand and execute, federal and state taxes to pay, an office or studio to rent, employees to hire and pay, business insurance, contracts to develop and sign and all of the other “stuff” that goes with maintaining a business. Start early and get some essential business classes added to your portfolio, for example, bookkeeping and finances. It will help you profit in many ways as you walk towards building your business.

Many trade colleges have a student framework where you coach under a professional in the industry. This is called an apprenticeship. Yet, it may be something beneficial for you to assume control over this issue. Plan to work for a photography business long enough to gain proficiency with the skills needed to execute on your business. This allows you to learn your craft, how to use new equipment, and may even expose you to contacts that will be crucial for your success.

Truth be told, it may be a smart thought to study and work at a few different types of photography studios before starting your own photography business. So you can become familiar with the details of wedding photography, infant photography, design photography and other professionals all before you go through your very own path. This is how you develop skills, increase knowledge, increase your portfolio, and take notes from those who are already successful to avoid making rookie mistakes.

Your bosses will be excited to show you their impressive knowledge to you as long as you are ready and willing to listen, learn, and take action. Most importantly, you can construct a customer base from the numerous clients you work with before you go into business. By dealing with another person’s clients, they can turn into your clients if they like you for your personality and style. That is good for your future business.

Why Does My Business Need A Professional Photographer?

Hiring a PROFESSIONAL Photographer for your business

By: Matt Sloniker

Summery

In this article you will get the answers as to exactly what a professional photographer does and why you need to hire one for your business or brand. When running a business there are so many things you have to think about and maintain to be successful. You have to think about employees, mortgage or rent, products, make sure your company follows government standards, and many more things. However, one of the most important parts of your business is making sales and providing value to your customers. Without sales your business will become one of many businesses who have failed.

Getting Attention

One of the hardest part of selling your product is getting the attention to reach the right audience that needs your product or service. The World is full of more than 7.5 Billion people, you only need to reach a small percent of that to succeed.

Why you need a pro

When operating your business there are so many things you have worry about to be successful. Payroll, mortgage or rent, products, make sure your company follows government standards, taxes, bookkeeping, finding clients, sales, etc… 

show me the money

However, the most important part of your business is actually selling your product to your customers. Sales brings money to your business and without the customers to buy your product your business will not be able to keep up and will eventually fail after you have exceeded your savings and credit. Trust me you don’t want to go down that path.

finding the correct AUDIENCE

One of the hardest part of selling your product is getting the attention to reach the right audience that needs your product or service. The World is full of more than 7.5 Billion people, you have to make sure that your product/service stands out, and takes the attention it deserves from potential buyers.

how to grab attention?

The easiest and most efficient way that I have found of doing this is by having modern and eye-catching photos in your advertising, social media, and on your website. The best way to do this is by hiring a professional photographer to create some of the best photos for your need and knows exactly what will grab the attention you need. Bonus tip find a photographer who is already good at capturing an audience, so they can help you with getting the exposure you need.

Photographer vs PROFESSIONAL Photographer

The difference between any “photographer” and a professional photographer is the professional has a lot of experience in creating the image that is best fit for your brand and helping you choose photos that will give you the exposure that your product/service needs. Professional photographers have years of experience or go to college to learn their skills and develop a style, no matter what they continue to learn new techniques and improve their craft to provide the most value for your business.

bringing your idea to life

You may have had a great photo idea for your business, but a professional photographer will take that idea and make it a reality that will bring in $$$$ for you and your business.

why a pro will help you dominate

They will not be afraid to tell you they’re ideas on how to improve your idea to gain the most exposure or fit your brand the best as well as help you stay on the top of trends in the world. That’s one of the best reasons to hire a pro so, you can dominate your market. A non-professional photographer would be too scared to input their ideas and do whatever you tell them too. That would not give you the results your business needs.

I’ll take the photos myself

I get this one all the time “I’ll take the photos with my iPhone for free”, unfortunately, “you get what you pay for.” 

remember why you hire PROFESSIONALS

There is a reason you go to the professionals for your health, fitness, car maintenance, buying a house, etc… The professionals know what they are doing, and why they are doing it. Not to mention they save you TIME!!! I’m sure you’ve heard before “time is money.” Don’t believe me try to make your own photos, and let me know how that works out. Is saving the money going to bring in more sales, increase your brand recognition, grow your audience, or save you time? These are all problems businesses struggle with and hiring a professional can solve some of those painful problems for you.
