A lot of what photographers shoot could be called high-pressure photography. Think about a wedding photographer – the photographer needs to know how to take photos in a variety of situations, be able to predict when great photo opporunities arise, and must always be on the ball. There are no second chances in wedding photography.
A lot of what I shoot is personal photography – family moments, or action during get-togethers. In some ways, this has the same pressure as wedding photography. There really are no do-overs, no second chances.
So take this as an opportunity to shill the training & blog of David Zizer. I recently had the opportunity to watch his “Wedding Photography: Rapid-Fire Tips and Tricks” video on KelbyTraining.com and I have to say it’s perfect for the family photographer.
