Hire Professionals for Corporate Event Photography

• You have a better business value – While your guests and clients notice professional photographers present at your event, they tend to value you more as it brings about a skilled touch to your work. While you have professional and high quality images of your event for showcasing on your website and brochures, you get to bring about an appeal that is professional.

• Proficient services – While they come along with a set of high quality equipment to capture your event, they would ensure the fact that you do not have to instruct them on anything after an initial briefing. If it is a large event, they would ensure that several photographers in the team would capture the event from different angles.

• Helps in future business prospects – While you have a stock of high-quality images to showcase your clients, you have better chances of business for the days to come. Your employees can use them as references and also helping you bring out a good picture of your company o the world.

• Creates a good memory for your organisation – While you collect photographs from your employees and guests that they have captured during the event, there is a variation in the quality of the photographs that you may not like to preserve. While the photographer captures the best photographs of the moments from your event, you get to have a collection of the best photographs of the same quality that would not only enhance the look of your collection but would look appealing as well.

Digital Photo Frames

However, problem with those regular, non-digital frames is that you can only display one picture. So if you want to share ten pictures you will need ten different frames. That’s not a practical thing to do. Today, given our lifestyle and our reliance on digital media so much, we need something that could multitask even if it is a display item. Digital photo frames are thus your best bet. These are specifically designed for showcasing multiple photos of you or whoever you want to gift to. They give a brilliant and novel look wherever you intend to keep them. You can enthrall anyone with the idea of displaying his/her pictures in digital format without using any gadget.

They come handy with Wi-Fi connection, SD card or USB port. These are the sources that display your photographs in digital format. Some also have Bluetooth and printer application through which you can easily send commands to printer and take out hard copy of your favorite pictures.

One of the most interesting features about them is the extensive connectivity these offer. All the time you can connect with Facebook or WhatsApp, in the same way you do on your computer, mobile phone or laptop. You can easily share your pictures with your family and friends, just enter the email address to which you want to share pictures and enjoy amazing, uplifting comments.

Digital photo frames come in varied shapes, sizes, colors and features. The best is the one with rotating display feature. It keeps updating everyone. Timed display is yet another interesting feature where you set time to change the display after a specific interval. It cannot get more customizable than this, isn’t it!

Highly Effective Photographers

Understand that pressing the shutter is only half of making a good photograph.

Modern cameras are no match for the human eye, and still have lots of limitations, especially in low light situations.

Post-processing has been done since the invention of photography (either in a traditional darkroom or on a computer). This is where you polish your final images, and make adjustments to compensate for the constraints of the camera.

Select and present only the very best images from a photo shoot.

Store a back-up copy of their images onto an external hard drive, or somewhere safe.

Publish photographs, so they aren’t destined to die on a dusty hard drive, unseen by the world.

Share their work to get constructive feedback from peers, (e.g. via on-line galleries such as 500px, Flickr, Google Photos, Instagram or a Facebook group.)

Present their images as a means of self-expression; their contribution to recording the world, from their point of view, (e.g. framed photos, greeting cards, calendars, art galleries, photo-books, or merely as prints inside a simple photo album).

Get inspiration from other photographers they admire.

Read eBooks, magazines, blog posts, look at Facebook posts, or view YouTube videos.

Visit galleries, take workshops or go on a photography tour to learn from a more experienced shooter.

Travel in search of fresh subject matter; this could be interesting locations or photogenic people.

On a micro level, they use their feet to find fresh angles and perspectives – they ‘work the scene’, and don’t just settle on the first composition they see.

On a macro level, they visit exotic or remote locations away from home, opening their eyes to new possibilities.

Avoid shooting clichés, looking for a new ‘take’ on well-photographed subjects.

 

Some Amazing Effects of Photography

Panning

Panning is a photography technique that is mostly used to shoot moving objects such as sports cars, race competitions. It involves the horizontal, rotational and vertical movement of an image or video. To achieve best results of a sharp subject with a blurred background, you need to stay with an object as you frame and press the shutter button. It is among the old techniques, so it needs a lot of practice and patience to master.

Thirds rule

It is a method that is frequently used by artists and painters. Work produced using the technique can be found in art galleries. The rule of thirds method involves breaking down the photo in thirds, vertically and horizontally to have nine parts. The focus object is usually not placed in the middle which results to it being interesting, moving and dynamic. Factors to consider are the point of interest and the frame. Mentally divide your viewfinder into three to frame the shot.

Golden hour

Also referred to as the magic hour, it is the first hour of sunrise and last time of the sunset. The light is of different quality thus add quality and interest to the photo. It requires one to be fast for the quality of light fades quickly

Fill flash

This technique involves filling the dark areas of an image using flash. The background of the picture is usually brighter than the subject. A photographer needs to adjust the shutter and aperture speed to expose the background. The circumstances when to use flash are:

• When foreground light is less than in the background

• When close to the focus subject

Long exposure

It is an effect that creates a dreamy landscape, it both captures still elements and moving. Objects in motion usually are blurred. The photographer narrows the aperture and sets the shutter to a long duration speed.
