Thanks so much for tuning in for my live interview with @jovanarikalo
last monday. in this post i gathered some key
takeaways from our talk. 🔥🔥🔥
💥you don’t have formal photography education in photography. you can start from scratch and learn everything yourself, if only you really want to master it.
💥 when you organize complex shoots with gigantic props, smoke, bubbles and balloons, like jovana, it’s always great to work with an assistant. try to find someone, who will stay with you and become a part of your team. such a person will be priceless not only on location, but also while you’re planning your shoots: you can through ideas at each other, etc.
💥 if you don’t have a chance to work with complex props, then you can still add them later in photoshop, but your photoshop skills have to be excellent for the final image to look real.
💥 when you’re working with models: it helps if you meet them first and explain every detail of your shoot to them, including the emotion you want to get as a result. i would also add, that running a test-shoot will also help a great deal.
💥 if you’re from a small country and don’t actually see the market for your work there aim globally. don’t limit yourself by just one region. the key is to find your style, do your best for every work you share and you’ll attract people from all over the world.
💥 if you want to create more meaningful work: look inside and observe everything that strongly impacts you in the first place. if it had a strong impact on you chances are it will resonate deeply with your audience.
i think those are great tips and nuggets of wisdom that you can easily apply to what you do. don’t forget to save the post, to be able to review them later!
