I’m not one to use DIY products because personally, I don’t like the cheap look of it and it doesn’t go over very well when you get to a big shoot and all the client sees is white PVC tubing with interlocking parts and cheap clunky stuff holding your camera equipment together. It’s just not professional and I’m sure you want to look somewhat pro. Now, with that said, there are a couple of items that I would not consider to be cheap looking or give off that DIY look. One of these being a standard reflector.
Over the past years, technology has changed the way people come together. Especially in the dating scene. Long gone are the days that you would meet your soulmate crossing paths in a long hall at the library, pumping gas at the station, maybe fixing her flat tire when she’s stranded on the side of the road. Fast forward to today’s society where dating takes place on the internet.
With the growing popularity of sites like E-Harmony, Match.com and Tinder, more and more people are stepping up their game when it comes to their online profiles. Take Tinder for example, no time to read Bio’s? No problem, after a quick glance at your possible love connection, a quick swipe to the right or left will determine their fate in the blink of an eye. This is why it’s important to have a strong profile picture.
I’ve actually been shooting weddings in the San Francisco Bay Area for about 5 years now. Just recently I started my own wedding business, One Tree Hill Weddings. I haven’t advertised much but through referrals and word of mouth, business is picking up. My approach to shooting weddings is more of a journalistic approach. I think posing is old school and looks too contrived. I may put the couple in a situation where they may act out and I just shoot what ever unfolds. I’m able to capture genuine moments this way. If your’e getting married anytime soon or have a friend that is, make sure to stop by the site and inquire about our packages and availability.
