How to Easily Get More Images With Less Effort

This probably sounds like every photographer’s dream – right?  More great images – less work.  It’s not a gimmick.  It’s a quick tip.

Once you pose your customer, rather than shoot the images from the logical position, try at least two more moves.  Your subject can basically stay where they are.  You, however, will move up or down, left or right… or all the way around.  Once you start moving yourself, you’ll realize you have more variety to choose from and often better images. So next time you think, “I’ll stand here and take pictures,” challenge yourself to circle around your subject.

Quick-Tip-1 How to Easily Get More Images With Less Effort Activities Photography Tips

Bonus tip 1: If you usually use a zoom lens, try a prime as it will force you to shoot more creatively since you cannot be as lazy by zooming.

Bonus tip 2: When shooting images in the same spot, make sure you use a consistent white balance, and when editing, use the same manual steps for toning and style (or the same Photoshop actions).  The images in the samples below were all edited with MCP Summer Solstice actions.

Here is an example of the results from our social media assistant, Kristin Williams.  Just moving around the little girl, Kristin got so many different images – the adorable child stayed in same spot the entire time.
