15: iPhone X Photography

New phone = new upgraded camera. So how do I capture better photos with the new iPhone X? In todays podcast we go into detail about some of the things you can do to step up your photo game. Some things still remain the same no matter the device you are using.

  1. The Rule of Thirds.

    in your cameras settings you can turn on the “grid” overlay. This will overlay some intersecting lines onto your screen. Then make sure one of the object you want the viewer to focus on in one of these cross sections. This is a simplified explanation of the rule of thirds.

  2. Clean Your Lens

    No matter how expensive your camera may be shooting with a dirty lens will result in amateur quality images. Unless it is a creative direction you are taking with your photograph I recommend cleaning your lens before capturing any image.

  3. Using the cameras features

09: Photographing At The Griffith Observatory

20160827_3.jpg

Photographing at a popular location like this can be a daunting task for a photographer. When the goal is to capture engagement photos it can be even more of a challenge because for engagement photos the goal (at least mine) is to ensure that the couple is seen together and more importantly ALONE. So working in a busy area with lots of foot traffic takes first and foremost patients from the couple and more importantly from the photographer. In todays podcast I share a bit from my fist engagement session at the Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles.

08: Guests Brining A DSLR To A Wedding.

How to deal with a guest who decides to bring their pro or prosumer level dslr to a wedding you are hired to capture. As a preface to this podcast episode it may come off as a little bit of a rant but i assure you this is not my intention. Every wedding I have had the opportunity too capture has had at least one person with a dslr camera. Don’t get me wrong I am not opposed to people capturing the day to share on their social media or to look back on later but leave the big camera at home. I say this to all those who are on the fence about brining their dslr to a wedding. Maybe you want to get into wedding photography and think this is a good way to build your portfolio. I say think about the potential photos the paid photographer may miss out on because the guests think you are also their as a hired hand. Couples spend good money so that their guests can enjoy the celebration with them and one of the reasons they hire a photographer is to capture the day for them. If a friend or family member is out their confusing guests as to who the paid photographer is it leaves room for missed moments.
