Are you a realtor with several houses to sell? Are you currently working on the copy for your brochures, mailers, and posters? Do you take your own photos, or are you using the services of a professional photographer?
Many realtors have a brick-and-mortar office as well as a web presence. Having quality photos can make a major difference in the type of traffic you receive. Since your goal is to attract potential buyers and sellers–and close those deals–quality photos will highlight the homes you’re representing to their best advantage.
When people are in the market to buy a new home or sell their existing home, they may be located near your office. When you post realistic photos on your interior or exterior walls, they will have a clear picture of what’s currently on the market and the
Everyone knows what it’s like to need a break and to want to get away for a family fun filled vacation and away from the mundane chores of every day life. It does not matter what time of year it is, everyone could use a vacation. Maybe you want to get away as a couple and have some quality time with just the two of you. Perhaps you feel like it’s time for the family to get out and you want to take the kids somewhere special where you can all make amazing memories together. Maybe you even want to get away with the whole extended family and have a big group outing to remember with lots of Read More
Outsourcing Photoshop services may seem like a cheat at first, but they can honestly improve your business and save you time, energy and stress.
First, don’t think of it as outsourcing, think of it as hiring someone to come into your studio and help you. This is more of a partnership between you and a photo enhancement service. The photography is still yours. You did the photo styling, you altered the lighting, you went on location, chose a model, hired a make-up artist, among many other possibilities. This one move will not change that.
Post-production editing is often a stressful part of the process. While actually taking shots is engaging, ta
Digital photography has surpassed film as the primary source of pictures, and for good reason. It’s faster, more accurate, and often easier to store. As a result, there has been a dramatic increase in the number of amateur and professional photographers in the last few years. As of 2015, there were over 40 million photographers in the U.S. alone. However, just because you can point a camera doesn’t mean you’re a professional. Here are five myths that could be harming your photography!
All you need is an expensive camera
Although an expensive camera can sometimes improve the quality of your photography, it is most often not the case. Photography takes time, training, and practice, just like any other profession. There’s a reason why the best photographers in the world have spent years and years doing it! It’s also important to recognize your strengths and weaknesses. For example, someone who is fantastic at portrait photo editing may be terrible at real estate photo editing, and vice versa.
The switch from film to digital is easy
Digital may seem easier, but if you want to make your way into photo editing for professional photographers, you’ll need more than the instruction manual. The same is true for someone switching from digital to film. The two are completely different processes and require training and practice. Although the employment of photographers is expected to increase in the next ten years, you’ll still need training and skill to attain that job.
What you see is what you get
Everything looks amazing on the three-inch preview monitor on the back of your digital camera, but things take on a different light when they’re viewed at full size. Digital cameras made it possible to view the image you just took, but nothing is certain until you open the picture at 100% on a computer monitor. Any photo editing for professional photographers requires a large, bright screen, and dozens of copies of the same shot to adjust for lighting and exposure.
You only need computer skills for editing
Yes, you need a computer for photo cropping, color correction services, and a myriad of other editing processes, but that’s not where it stops. Once you switch to digital, you’re essentially chained to the computer. You will need a computer to view, edit, send, and print images, among other things. Whether you hire someone to do photo enhancement services or do them yourself, it’s important to have a sound understanding of the technology.
Photo editing for professional photographers is not only part of the job description, it’s an activity that allows them to ensure that their work is the best it can possibly be. Professional photographs are twice as likely to be shared and get much-needed exposure, but you need to put in the effort to get them there!
Understanding how a camera uses light is the key to understanding photography. And while there are many complicated explanations of how this process works, the example of filling a glass with was makes understanding the process pretty simple.
Pretend that every time you take a picture what you are really trying to achieve is a full glass of water. Using the glass as a metaphor, it is easy to understand the two ways to control how a glass is is filled. The first way to control the water going into the glass is by turning on the faucet full blast. With the faucet completely open, the glass will fill quickly. Partially closed, it will take longer to fill the glass. Makes sense, right?
Using the example of filling a glass with water, it is convenient that one part of the process starts with
