We are in an era where cameras are increasingly accessible in terms of price and use. Many amateurs are equipped with almost professional equipment. It is therefore important to understand what are the differences between an amateur photographer and a professional photographer, then secondly what are the advantages of a professional photographer.
With the proliferation of camera offers, the first question is whether a good camera always takes a good photo?
Obviously the answer is no. A photographer has a vision of the rendering he wants to obtain and according to this he will know what adjustments to make exactly to create the desired effects. If you have a precise brief for the images you want to obtain, he will be able to meet the conditions for the shooting to be optimal. Beyond the technique (which can be acquired with training or personal work), a professional photographer has accumulated experience that will certainly be useful to you when shooting. Making a product packshot does not require the same work or the same equipment as an event report or even food photographs. A professional will have commitments to keep, a contract and an assurance for you of the quality of the work that must be provided to you.
Post processing of photos:
The majority of photographs also need post-production. Whether it’s minor touch-ups or more significant touch-ups, this job requires a huge amount of time and financial investment. A professional photographer can spend several hours post-processing photos before obtaining a satisfactory result.
So it should not be denied that many people passionate about photography who have not made it their job today can take shots that rival a professional photographer. However, they often depend on optimal conditions, an unforeseen moment, a subject that particularly affects them. Very often post-production is put aside for lack of time. And if you are not satisfied with the result, unfortunately you will not have any recourse.
It remains to ask the question of choosing a professional photographer. The selection is made on several criteria that depend both on your product, your universe, the desired result or the technique required.
photography for children:
We went to an exhibition where the little girl did not stop taking photos. I will not say that they are all wonderful. In fact almost all of them are moved, but suddenly I have a vision of their visit to the exhibition that I did not have before. These are some of the things I learned from the images taken by my little one that I didn’t know before:
The world, at its height, has nothing to do with ours. And it is fascinating!
As much as you try to teach them things that you think they will like, what catches their attention goes a different way.
. You can’t imagine how many photos of tiles I have from that day because “Mom, look how beautiful the floor is . They are so eager to see things that they don’t wait for the “click” most of the time.
Encourage your child to take a portrait for you. You will see a sparkle in your eyes that you have surely never seen before . It’s the one you have when you look at it.
Benefits of photography for children
Not to mention what the child will learn by taking their own photographs (we are thinking about 5 or 6 year old children):
You will learn to be careful and take responsibility for your camera. It’s a big step for mom or dad to let them have it, right?
Let your imagination and creativity run wild by mixing elements and testing frames.
You will learn to be patient: it is not enough to press the button and go for something else.
You will exercise your memory when you go back to the images and remember what you did that day and what you liked the most.
