5 Simple Hacks For A Successful Photoshoot

by A.Rrajani Photographer A.Rrajani

If you are a photographer, you have most likely been involved in the following situations: you have a client requiring multiple photos, or you are photographing a moving object and need to adjust the exposure settings. The result is that you have taken several bad shots and ruined your entire day. You might even have had to shoot the object multiple times and get the best results. It's frustrating and you know it's not the right thing to do. Well, there are several easy hacks for a successful photoshoot that you can apply to eliminate frustration and save time.

Adjusting the lighting is one of the simplest hacks for a successful photoshoot. You should always be adjusting the lighting in your photos no matter what else is happening. Using light meter software to see the intensity of light is important, but in reality, it is often too difficult to see the full spectrum of light necessary to take a great shot. Also, changing the lighting in the scene will alter the mood of the entire picture and will change the overall impact of your photo.

There are many different reasons to use a narrow aperture. You want to make the background appear larger so that everything stands out more, and this can be done with a wide lens as well. However, if you are going with a narrow aperture, you want to make sure that the foreground is illuminated as well. Shooting from the shadows makes everything blurry and you don't want to create a scene that is dark and shadowy.

You can also use diffusion when taking photographs. This helps to soften the background so that you aren't being too harsh with your lighting. There are two different settings: manual and automatic. With a manual setting, you simply place light against the background that you want to diffuse. You can move it around until you find where you like the best and basically experiment with the intensity of the light.

If you want to really add some dimension to the scene, then using a spotlight on your subject matter can make it stand out even more. You need to start in a dark place and work your way to the light. Try and take a picture of a wall or a ceiling to get a good direction on where you want to direct the light. Then you simply apply the spotlight to the subject so that it highlights them. This works the best if the sun is high in the sky.

Another method that some photographers use is the silhouette technique. Basically, you just take a photo of a small object and focus it using the backlight of your camera. You then want to move the object until you have it just slightly lit. Then you take another shot and you'll see the exact effect that you were after.

Something else that is often used is bouncing. What you'll use is a bouncing cube that you can buy at any department store. You place the cube against a wall and adjust the light that comes through the bottom part until it bounces off of the wall and stands out. Then you'll take another shot and see the effect. You can also bounce the cube on a floor rather than a wall to see how much of the light hits the flooring.

These are just five tips that you can start using right away to get better lighting for your photoshoots. Try to use as much direct sunlight as possible and try to cover the frame as much as you can with shadow. With these few simple tips in mind, you should be able to get pretty accurate shots and improve your overall lighting skills for your work.
