Ep 243: How to take photos that stand out in a crowded market

If you want to stand out in a crowded market, you need to ensure that your pics exude a certain quality that’s hard to put into words. It’s not about using the most expensive gear or the opportunity to shoot a supermodel. It’s about understanding a few simple rules that can set you – and your photographs – apart from everyone else.

In this episode, we discuss what you need know about gear, your point of difference, lighting, posing and how to go the extra mile.

Show Notes

With so many photos being uploaded every second, how the does a photographer get their work noticed these days, or better yet, care about the work you are doing?

  1. A better camera will not make you a better photographer, doing the work will.
  2. Find your point of difference
  3. There is no growth without resistance
  4. Go the extra mile

The difference between good and great images is that extra 5%. It’s all the little details that are often overlooked that add up to make a great image. These include:

  • Lighting- most photographers shoot daylight or simple flash
  • Posing
  • Post-production- WB, colour grading and good editing
  • Composition
  • Pre-visualise your images
