Roc-ing a photo is really crucial. People are of different face structures and body sizes so it is important to understand how to position people to get the best out of them but even so knowing how to pose yourself so you can bring out the best in any photos.

​Here are some quick easy to follow steps from the Event paparazzi London and Event paparazzi Kent team on how to pose for an event:

 

Understand your best side

A study in 2012 found that more people’s left sides were between than their right side. Our Fake paparazzi hire  will take several photos so that there are a selection of images that emphasise your features more.

 

 

Convey positive body language

For any Event paparazzi event you will hardly know that you are being papped by our Paparazzi hire, however when you do make it natural. This will in turn make it look like you are having fun. This also means “smiling” will be seen as more approachable rather than a closed mouth portraying a stern look. Be open with your body language and enjoy yourself as a picture paints a thousand words.

 

 

Action Shot

Action shots are the best as there is no effort from you and it conveys a positive and lively image. This could be a kissing pose, a funny expression or even holding a glass and smiling for the camera.

 

 

It’s The Photo Team’s job as the Spoof Paparazzi to make our subjects look their best and therefore we will be able to build rapport with you, put you at ease and guide you to ensure you receive the best photos for you, your team and event. Therefore let us help you roc-a-foto and bring out the best images by our Press Paparazzi.

A Game Of Tones

A Game Of Tones

 

A tone describes the darkness or lightness of a particular area in an image. The skeleton or framework of every picture is based upon tones. It does not matter if it is a black & white or colour image, what is important is the range of tones and their placement within the picture. Colour does have a tremendous emotional impact, but still it is the tones within a picture that are the determining influence in a composition. In any image that has a full range of tones, your attention will be drawn towards the largest and lightest tone. From here, your attention will be attracted to either other light tones or a large dark tone, that depends on their placement and size within the picture.

 

 

Your composition should be determined by the tones that are present in your picture. In other words, if your subject is a middle tone and there is a large light tone in the picture, the viewer’s attention will be drawn away from your subject because of that light tone. What you should always keep in mind is; are the tones helping to support your subject or are they distracting from it. A picture consisting of dark or somber shades conveys mystery, intrigue, or sadness. When the tones are mostly light and airy, the picture portrays lightness, joy, or airiness.

What we have seen all too often are photographers taking photos without no concept of altering their settings on their camera and thinking ” one size fits all”. No consideration is given to the amount of light in the room and ​how to bring out the best colours or tones in a photo which then results to a shady, weak and non appealing photo. This also means altering the ISO on your lighting if you choose to have studio photos.

 

It is essential to take a photo that is a true reflection of what you see. There is something seriously wrong if you take a photo and the colours, tones and composition are nothing like what you see behind the camera. You can not sell or even provide this to a client as this could mean losing business and providing an unattractive service. Colours need to be vibrant, true and rich so the subjects stand out and are counted.

 

 

This is why we at The Photo Team hire the best photographers who are knowledgeable on how to provide quality photos in an instant. So hire our Event paparazzi London or Event paparazzi Kent today and see what fantastic results we can produce.

6 things photographers are tired of hearing

6 things photographers are tired of hearing

 

Lack of value on photography skills or the profession

Photographers need to be appreciated as artists rather than hearing “you must have a REALLY good camera”. Its always forgotten that the photographers works just as hard as the camera. They are using their talent for not only a creative outlet but for a profession as well. The photographers creates the photo through understanding the camera’s potential.

 

People who want something for nothing

There are the odd clients who expect discount on top of discount and try to ask us photographers to cut corners to lower the price. They too forget that there are man hours involved and the commute cost that all comes into equation too.

 

 

Having needy clients

Photographers who work tirelessly day and night do not need to be called relentlessly by potential clients when you have already told them you will get back to them as soon as you can. Photographers also don’t appreciate clients making unreasonable demands when you have already given the deadline of when they will receive their photos.

 

When customers say “you can just photoshop that out, right?” or “Can you make me look thinner?”

Photographers have heard this as many times as they have taken a photo. Unfortunately cameras can’t always do wonders but also think about the time it takes to a photographer to sit an edit each photo.

 

People’s expectation when you are not working

Now we all believe in helping friends and family out but sometimes us photographers need a bit of time off and actually turn up to an event without working.​ There is also the odd annoyance photographers have when they receive out of hours calls when the person calling clearly knows no one will answer.

 

Lack of respect from other professional photographers

Whether it be copying your style of photos or trying to replicate your logo and name the competition is inevitably out there. However it all comes down to respecting each other’s territory and appreciating each others’s art work without looking as if the other is copying and trying to take your hard work as their own.
