TO TAKE PHOTOS THAT SELL 7 STEPS
IS THE ONLY LANGUAGE THAT CAN BE UNDERSTOODANYWHERE IN THE WORLD
A GLOBAL MARKETPLACE
Photos are a treasured memory of peoples lives and photographers are privileged to be able to capture these memories. I believe anyone is capable of capturing a memory of someones life and I want to inspire and enable photographers to be able to do that.
PEOPLE WANT MEMORIES OF THEIR LIVES
Every weekend there are millions of photographers worldwide who capture memories of peoples sporting achievements. Many of these photos never get shared with participants and a great memory is lost forever.
PHOTOGRAPHY IS A BILLION DOLLAR MARKETPLACE
TO TAKING PHOTOS THAT SELL
Start by researching great photos that others have taken. Understand what participants
are looking for in the photo. Look at google images or other
photographers work for inspiration. Ask the event
organiser what photos he/she thinks people will love.
UNDERSTAND THE SPORT
If shooting outside be aware of the direction of natural light.
Take note of where the sun is and be aware of shadows. Use natural light to your advantage
to capture the best light on your subject.
UTILISE NATURAL LIGHT
Too much noise behind the subject could negatively impact the quality of your final image. Make sure that the background does not distract from the story you are trying to tell but adds to the composition of your photo.
Putting people front and centre of the frame is paramount to capturing a photo. Be close enough to the action that people can recognise themselves.
FILL THE FRAME
Look for moments of high emotion. After the goal is
scored, starting lines, finish lines. Emotion and action bring
energy to the shot.
CAPTURE HIGH EMOTION
Multiple exposures of people do sell. Be sure to take a photo of
every person participating, even if they aren't a key player.
Everyone wants a memory of their day.
