I have heard people say that professional photographers are not worth the rates they ask.
You may have possibly thought the same thing. Below are reasons I believe a professional photographer adds value.
Posing and composition
A professional photographer will guide you into the best poses. Posing is important in creating a good photograph that flows and is appealing to the eye. Knowing the sequence of poses to follow during the shoot also allows for more efficient and productive use of the time
The photographer will also be able to compose photos that get the best results. Knowing where and how to place people add to the artistic value of your photographs.
Using the best light
A professional photographer knows the best time to take photographs. The best light for photos is around sunrise or sunset. This is when the light is softer and most flattering
Knowing how to pose people according to the type and direction of the light also adds to the artistic charm of your photos. A professional photographer will know how to get the best out of the available light - whether it’s an on location shoot or in the studio.
Locations and backgrounds
A professional photographer will know the best locations for your shoot. Whether it's a beach, forest, urban or studio shoot, your photographer will be able to suggest suitable locations.
In photography the background of a photograph is just as important as the subject in the picture. A good background will add a lot of artistic flair to your photos.
I believe a photo shoot should be a good experience that the couple, group or family remember. It’s a great bonding experience for everyone. As a photographer, I enjoy the intimate time I have with my clients and getting to know them a bit better.
Knowledge of the photographer
A professional photographer has spent years mastering their craft. They have the technical expertise and the correct equipment to create the best photos possible.
Besides the initial taking of the photos, they have to be edited afterwards. Editing is where the photographer's artistic touch can really enhance the artistic value of your photos, which will set them apart.
Printing your photos
A professional photographer will deliver high resolution images which offer the best quality for the printing of them.They can offer advice on the best images to print if you are note sure. A photographer will also be able to offer advice on what medium to print on, such as canvas, metal prints, normal prints etc. or even help you create a photo book.
I hope this blog post has convinced you of the great value that a professional photographer can offer you. I believe hiring a professional photographer is important if you want to create unique artistic photos of you and your loved ones that create lasting memories.
