You can have all the technical skill and creative vision in the world, but it takes the ability to communicate effectively with your clients during a shoot to be able to deliver great images. If that is something you struggle with, this fantastic video tutorial will give you five helpful tips for better communication during photoshoots.
Coming to you from our good friend, Pye Jirsa, with Adorama TV, this excellent video tutorial will give you five helpful tips for better communication with your clients during photoshoots. Of the tips, one I think is particularly important and often overlooked is the importance of knowing your gear. If you are unsure of where to find certain settings or it takes you a long time to dial in the right exposure or the like, you will be distracted and disengaged from your clients, who are looking to you for direction and often, reassurance during the shoot. It will also make it harder for you to focus on the creative aspect of things. Being able to control your camera, lenses, and lights by muscle memory and without thinking makes it far easier to focus on working with your clients. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Jirsa.
