Tips for Event Photography

June 25, 2014

A well planned event is going to be filled with special, spontaneous moments that are simply begging to be captured on film. However, it is admittedly easy to get caught up in the planning and execution of an event—such as preparing for the venue, finding caterers and booking bar hire packages—to the extent that many of those would-be memorable moments end up being lost. That’s a shame, and it certainly doesn’t have to be that way.

If you are in the midst of planning an event in South Australia, make sure to devote some time to finding a commercial photographer in Adelaide who can see to it that each memorable moment is properly recorded. In the process, you’ll be taking out what amounts to an insurance policy on the day’s memories.

But even if you have a professional team snapping photos throughout the day, you’ll still undoubtedly end up shooting some of your own photos. These days, virtually everyone has a digital camera on their smart phone, so it makes sense to take a few photos even if you know that the professionals will be doing the same. After all, you can never have too many photos on file. Instead of traditional photos, how about a film production company. Be the envy of all your competitors with your very own film of your corporate event

With that in mind, here are some tips for taking outstanding photos at your upcoming event:

Be Prepared

Amateurs are often surprised to learn how much preparation goes into a beautiful photo—even when it’s a candid that appears to have been more or less spontaneous. In fact, an accomplished photographer in Adelaide is likely to go into an event with some very specific shots in mind that he or she will attempt to capture. For example, plan ahead to capture up-close shots of the band members on stage; or plan on sticking around to catch a candid of the groom getting help with his tie or cuff links.

Plan for bad weather

Many grand-scale events in South Australia are hosted outside, and you always have to be prepared for surprises from the weather. If you have an outdoor event scheduled for the winter months, it’s worth waterproofing your gear. Of course, this applies more to a commercial photographer in Adelaide than to the amateur hoping to snap a few memorable shots on a small digital camera or phone.

Tell a story

The best images in a photo shoot are going to be those that tell a story. Perhaps the most effective way to approach an event—at least from a picture-taking perspective—is to look for images that tell the viewer what has happened and how the venue has changed. Likewise, if an exciting development occurs, zoom in on the audience for reaction shots. These are often priceless.

Don’t be afraid to get up close and personal

Those who do not have a professional background in photography in Adelaide are likely to be hesitant to get up too close and personal. However, any professional worth his salt is not going to be afraid to jockey for position. After all, the right position is going to create a truly memorable photo that everyone is going to cherish for decades to come.
