Essential Photography Skills For Beginners
One of the most painful experiences felt as a photographer is the moment you check your photos realising that you have completely missed the focus on an image or set of images that can’t be reshot.
This is a common problem, however there are focusing techniques that you can use to help increase your accuracy to capture images with perfect focus more often than not. In this video tutorial by Phil Steele you will learn five professional techniques for focusing your DSLR and overcoming problem situations.
One of the hardest skills a photographer has to learn is how to effectively communicate the value of their photography to prospective clients so that they not only make sales, but more importantly get paid what they’re worth.
Getting paid what your worth isn’t easy and has been made even more difficult with the advancement in digital technology which has led to almost everyone owning a digital camera in the form of a smartphone, not to mention access to thousands of digital camera and photo editing apps.
One of the most common problems I see photographers make is choosing to base their pricing of that of their competition and then wonder why their photography business isn’t profitable.
It’s important to get your pricing correct from the get go, otherwise you’ll likely be faced with the prospect of potentially closing up shop and going out of business sooner than you think.
Starting a photography business isn’t easy, especially if you’ve no prior experience in the industry which can in the beginning make decisions all that more difficult.
One of the hurdles that you’ll have to overcome is finding a reputable photographic lab to outsource the printing and finishing of our photography.
You may not be the first, but you definitely won’t be the last to jump on the facebook bandwagon, joining countless others by creating a fan page for your photography business and it’s easy to see why this makes sense for the average photographer because chances are you already have a facebook account and the process of creating a facebook page is relatively easy compared to that of creating a website.
