Everybody Loves Photos

Who doesn’t love photographs? The truth is, there is not a person alive that isn’t taken aback by looking at a photo that touches their soul. If you want to sell photographs for a living like I do, you have to learn how to find the right imagery to draw the audience in. A lot of people are more than happy to read my blog and even visit my website, perusing all of the different photographs available for sale there. However, the key is getting them to look at those pictures. While I make some of my money from monetizing my blog, I also like to make money from selling the photographs that I take. Therefore, I have to know how to get the audience to make that decision that they simply can’t live without that photograph.

The key is to take really good photographs that draw the largest possible audience in. Whatever you decide to photograph, you have to be sure that it is interesting and breathtaking at the same time. Be careful about the colors in the photographs and the way you that you let the light play with objects in the photo. All of this affects how many people are interested in buying that particular picture.

Without a doubt, one of the most important things you can do is be fearless. Don’t be scared to push the envelope and try new things. A lot of people are interested in something that is different. They don’t want the same photograph that everyone else has, they want something that is unique. Sometimes when you push the envelope, you fall flat on your face but other times you fly. The most important thing to remember is that if you don’t try, you’ll never know how it would have come out.

Making money off of photographs is something that I consider a gift and there are other people out there that feel the same way. If it has always been a dream of yours, pursue it. What are you waiting for? As long as you can find a way to draw the audience in, you will be able to find success. The best thing you can do is make the decision to try and then refuse to give up, no matter how long it takes.

8 Things You Don’t Want to Miss Shooting

I love taking photos. Well, as you can see, I am a wedding photographer. I particularly love shooting wedding occasions. I feel that there is something mysterious about shooting wedding that in any other occasions. I am not the one attending the ceremony but with every wedding’s that I do shoot, I can totally feel the love atmosphere. I would feel really delighted to be able to shoot their precious moments. But with every wedding, there are things that you shouldn’t miss shooting. Every little detail is already important.

Here are 8 little things that you shouldn’t want to miss taking a picture:

1. Bride solo

All the brides are beautiful especially on their wedding days. You could see the glow from their cheeks. You could see their wide smile. They look happy. I particularly want to shoot bride solos, from their preparation, make-up, dress, poses, the ceremony, the reception and until the end. As I look at the pictures that I have taken of the bride, I could clearly see their happiness. I can see their nervousness. Physically you may not be able to see these things, but I know it in my pictures and I am glad that I could share it to them, their feelings during their wedding duration.

2. Groom solo

Aside from brides being beautiful, grooms were also handsome. Grooms tend to look cool and mostly joke around during shooting and that’s what I also like. It’s making the shooting very comfortable. I definitely don’t want to miss shooting every groom because I also need to pair up their solos from their brides.

3. The couple’s ring

The ring is the symbol of the couple’s union. This is really symbolic and taking a picture of it before they exchanged vows is really a must for me. It may just be an ordinary thing, a little detail but it is definitely important.

4 The Preacher’s bible

The preacher’s bible is religious in its atmosphere in a sense and when I take a photo of it, it becomes so meaningful. Even if I am not religious, I would still take a picture of the preacher’s bible.

5. The outfits and footwear

I love to take pictures of the different outfits of the attendees as well as their footwear. And when I do take one, I would also blur the face of the wearer. It will make the picture appealing and mystery. And no, I don’t have any weird foot fetish in taking pictures of the footwear. It’s just a matter of photo creativity.

6. The reception

The reception is where all of the attendees gathered to celebrate the union of the newlywed. In that reception, that will be the moment where emotional feelings are now being shared and shown. I also see many emotional faces of the newlywed’s parents and relatives there. Every emotions I wanted to capture and you definitely don’t want to miss it.

7. The foods

I love foods! Pardon me for taking pictures of all the foods serve but I definitely don’t want to miss it. I guess you can say that I am also a food photographer.

8. The Kiss

Ah, the kiss! The rings and the kiss, both are symbolic. The ring that bonds and the kiss of true love. In every wedding, a photograph of the newlywed’s kiss is not anymore optional but a must.

These are the 8 things that I definitely don’t want to miss capturing in my camera. Some of these may be absurd, not to your liking or even optional but capturing photographs of these enhances the photographic memory that I can give to my clients.
