For taking great pictures, what are some top concepts to grasp in order to become the best photographer? Aperture is certainly important. An understanding of ISO. Shutter speed is critical. Flash and natural light. Understanding the rule of thirds and composition in a photograph. Having your gear backed up, from the flash right down to the batteries to run that camera and the flash. Having the memory, the storage capacity to photograph your session and then another. Understanding the effects of humidity, heat and cold on your gear. How cold can half your battery life, how bringing your camera outside on a hot humid day after you’ve been in a cool, air conditioned car might just ruin, or at the very least severely delay your photography session. And then there’s the inevitable to prepare for, when your lens breaks, you drop all that expensive gear because you weren’t wearing the proper shoes or you were so busy looking through the lens you didn’t know where you were walking. Will you be able to carry on? Will your client feel you are a professional, can you steady on without a hiccup or missing a beat? These are all things to take into consideration to be a great photographer, and that’s just the camera. Let’s talk about your planning. Looking forward on the calendar, knowing when the sun will rise or set, knowing what the temperature and humidity will be, how buggy is it, or is there a festival going on at the park where you scheduled your photo shoot months prior? Does where you’re going require a permit to photograph, do you need permission to take pictures there? This is by no means a comprehensive list, but to be a great photographer, these are elements you must have down as second nature. Now to be a great photographer, you need all that and this key ingredient: You need to understand your client’s needs. Is this a first time mom, a little nervous about her newborn being exposed to the elements? Is this an engagement where the two are totally in love but the guy is rushed to get to work? Is this senior that you’re photographing comfortable, and why do you have them at a park when they’re not interested in the outdoors at all? Is this person hugging the bride a friend, a coworker, or the groom’s ex? Good to know before you showcase that image yes? How much time can you spend with this person, this work of art in front of your camera, before you begin to loose that natural glow? The first few shots are usually just for scrap to break the ice, but are you talking with your client, are you disarming the tension, relating, comforting? Did this person just lose a loved one or have they just recently divorced, and are you sensitive enough to understand that the world is not revolving around your photography session. To be a top photographer, these are just a few key elements to fully grasp. More to come…Do you want to be an award winning photographer in the Sioux Falls area?
