COLLABORATING WITH A RENTAL STUDIO

 

Collaborating with a photography rental studio can be awesome. There are a ton of things to consider when renting a studio though. Like light, electricity, accessibility, amenities, and specific rules and stipulations. As well as whether or not the space fits you as a photographer. These things should all be presented to you by an established and trustworthy studio. As photographers we don’t like to be surprised during a shoot, but prepared. We think that you do too, thats why in the spirit or preparedness we are here to help.

FITB: A DEDICATED PHOTO STUDIO

 

FITB: Y U NO VIDEO? Truth is that we only provide the best of services to our clients. Our studio is a lovely light-filled space with concrete floors and walls, original brick, large windows, and white walls. As such, it’s amazing to photograph in. It proves a difficult challenge, to say the least, for us to let you film in. Physical and audio reverberation from inside and out, echoes, environmental noise and other wild vibrations are all factors native to our studio that prove detrimental to clean audio capture. Other reasons such as close proximity to a rail yard, building renovations and construction projects, and being respectful to business neighbors surrounding the studio play factors in our focused photographic endeavors. “What if my project is not audio dependent?” you might ask yourself.. If so, please read on!

5 ways to get new clients without breaking the bank blog graphic

 

TIME TO FRESHEN UP.

 

Here are 5 things you can do as a photographer to get more clients while not breaking your bank account. Some can involve money but at their barest, they don’t have to involve any spending at all. The only precious resources that they take are time and thought power. When we spend time and thoughts on things that matter to us, and plan to succeed, our chances are much better at achieving the goal. That’s why planning, manifesting success, and preliminary producing can save a business, project, or shoot from utter failure. Things don’t always go as planned but planning prepares us for the worst, and best. The important thing is to be prepped for both so that any and all situations can be taken advantage of or dodged when recognized.

a more organic workflow with wacom and why it matters

 

Reconnecting With Your Process.

 

Have you ever thought about how you interact with your computer? As a photographer I’m sure you have because we spend insane and massive amounts of time on our images and businesses. Mostly at the desktop workstation or on the go on a laptop. I know you’re familiar with this routine of mouse, keyboard, trackpad, mouse, keyboard, trackpad. It’s repetitive. It’s dry. And even though its better than a rock and chisel it makes for a stale workflow. There is a more organic way to workflow though, and that’s with Wacom Tablets. (This is the part that I tell you that this article is NOT affiliated financially with the brand Wacom, and that I am only so passionate about spreading the work to help YOU! Our awesome readers!)

Pre-Production Also Known As Setting Up For Success.

 

Production books aren’t as common as they should be. In the big leagues of photography production, they’re necessary. In filmmaking too, they’re indispensable. What is a production book you may ask? It’s a binder (usually) or some kind of master folder filled with documents, lists, call sheets, vital information, and everything you did during the pre-shoot process. The production book can be shared with your client, production crew, and even with third party coordinators like location contacts or managers to keep everyone on the same page. It’s purpose? To document all of your hard pre-lights work in a way that makes it both accessible and digestible for you and your team! Without further ado, let’s jump into how to make one, and what to put inside!

AN ESSENTIAL PHOTOGRAPHY TERM GUIDE

 

The following attempts to identify and remedy pain caused by misunderstanding with a term guide that bridges the technical gap between photographers and non-photographers.

MOOD BOARDS: YOUR SHOOT’S ROAD MAP

 

A mood board is a creative document that can charter the life, inspiration, and aesthetic direction of a creative project. The mood board is usually centered around a single image, item of inspiration, or aspect of the project. This could be a found image, a photo that has the editing style you want to achieve, a color palette, or even an item that has just sparked the creative juices in you. Any way its sliced, it should be an integral part of the final image, and will be referenced as such.

How To Make The Most Out Of The Photography Gear You Own

 

How much photography gear do you own?

 

What camera do you use? And how high is the quality of your photography equipment? This and similar questions are asked a lot in the photo industry. The amount of megapixels or AF points doesn’t really matter though because at it’s heart photography is about emotion, narrative, and memory. In this regard the question becomes not about equipment quality, but the quality of the artwork produced. Specifically, what makes a picture a quality photograph?
