Dose 5 plus recap of ALL 5 doses on professional image by Paul StevenViews: 1487
Jan 11, 2008 3:15 amDose 5 plus recap of ALL 5 doses on professional image by Paul Steven#

Paul Finkelstein

Dose 1. Timing is everything, take many shots with your camera.

Know what audience you want to reach first.

I had a professor once in college mention
that it is important to know WHO you want to talk to first
before you start contacting the world.
And DRESS for success and first impressions
on the first date, so to speak.
In other words, LOOK GREAT on the first meeting!
That first meeting could be an ONLINE EXECUTIVE PORTRAIT,
or on a business card, or on other print media or press releases.
In my humble opinion in MOST cases you will want to look your BEST!
LOOK your best and ACT your best on day 1!

You can do it!

There are obviously or not obviously a variety of poses or not so posed types of portraits. The key is a certain dialog and interaction that the photographer draws out of the subject that creates a GREAT photograph of YOU!
This dialog is VERY important!
Why? Having a conversation gets the ball rolling and establishes some RAPPORT between the photographer and the subject. Without RAPPORT with the subject it's really called a SNAPSHOT. SNAPSHOTS are popular because of the BILLION dollar market with new POINT and SHOOT cameras vs DSLR fully manual digital cameras.
SOMETIMES a snapshot can produce a great CANDID.
Sometimes NOT.
A professional photographer ought to be able to PREDICT
in a certain time period of 15 minutes - some less and some more - the time it will take to make the client feel comfortable, develop rapport and create ANY pose, candid, or portrait.
An amateur photographer may not take the time to develop rapport, BUT know the subject really well and POOF, the photograph is AWESOME!

BOTTOM LINE: Timing is everything!

BOTTOM LINE: Whether you're a pro or an amateur,
you CAN get great poses or not so posed images
for business headshots and YOUR IMAGE.

Don't be afraid to take EXTRA shots.
Digital cameras are awesome!
I took 294 images in a 15 minutes time period.
Client could not believe I took that many when I went over the shots on the viewing screen!!
I had another professor say, SHOOT a lot!
Why not???? You want that 1 GREAT SHOT! NO?????
5-10 quick shots in a row, mainly for BLINKING,
headbobs, and expression changes and created 5 posed and non posed images yesterday for a family portrait with 2 cats and their owners.
It was sooooo cute. They call their cats their daughters.
It was a nice family shoot.

 

Dose 2. Backup plans and Batteries/Rechargables/CDROM/Hard drive failure/etc

HAVING backup B A T T E R I E S.

Can't always rely on electric for ALL your power needs.

You know how many couples argued at the 100 foot xmas tree in Delray Beach over something dumb like drained batteries and they MISSED their family or kids snapshot on Santas lap and they HAD to pay for mine???

Some got mine and their snapshot.

Others just took their own.

Yes, we're one of the few areas that ALLOW people to use their own digital camera and not force them to buy a Santa picture.

Very cool, huh?

Dont worry...I did over 650 already in less then 10 days.

So...

Back to batteries...

I use RECHARGEABLE batteries.

Got mine in walmart.

Have more than one charger.

Do 4 AA at one time.

A lot of flashes and some cameras use AA.

Some use AAA.

Regardless of what batteries you need,

a good professional photographer ALWAYS has backup batteries.

Back up everything.

Lenses, second camera body, lenses, etc.

Stuff happens.

Being prepared can save the day and make you look TEN times more professional.

Happy holidays.

Ready for the holidays?

Ready set, CHARGE!!!!
(those batteries)

 

Dose 3. Be prepared when your portrait subject should
not smile/Missing tooth/etc
.

To smile or not to smile. That is the question.
Is that what Shakespeare really said???

Yup!
I hereby dedicate this post to the LAST WEDNESDAY of 07!
Happy NEW YEAR!

And the topic is about the following important stuff:

tips from an expert on how to capture the RIGHT image.

Most of the time I do prefer a nice warm smile and captured just right the expression just glows from a young child to a person in their late 100's :) or just someone in between; They could be playing a sport or just posing in a studio for me.

But, there are times when a smile is just not possible and our job as photographers pros or amateurs is to make the subject feel comfortable and also look there best.
MOST people are not models so out job of photographers
are to CHOOSE the right lighting first, then the right background then the right subject matter or props and clothing.

Sometimes I test a person BEFORE the shoot on the same day or a different day to see what their smile would look like.
I found out the hard way when I said, "SMILE!" to a former hockey player. Well, anyone who knows hockey knows that hockey players teeth take a beating. BUT, needless to say, after saying TEETH, or BIG SMILE or say cheese, and MOST people in front of the camera DO smile when you tell them to, you find out what the real story is as it unfolds right in front of you.

That PRE shoot is like pre heating the oven or PRE paring for anything. Getting ready before you have to be ready.
Like studying for a test. So, anyway, NOW we are all ready for the shoot and we NOW KNOW if we have work around
on shoot day with a extra ordinary situation.

So, BOTTOM LINE:
My last wednesday of 07 image tip:
Determine BEFOREhand IF you want to have a warm smile or something else. Everyone is different in front of the camera. Perhaps a young child got hit with a baseball playing really hard or slid into homeplate and cracked a tooth. Sure some of us have already been there, no?
DECIDE: SMILE or no smile. Lighting one way or another.
Background or different background. etc.

 

I should add that for MODELS you can have flat even lighting and they look good ALL the time, but the challenge is to make regular everyday folks look great in from of the lens.
Making people like flattering when they are not.
:)
Stay tuned til next years tip in image and professionalism.


Dose 4. Prepare WHAT kind of clothing/backdrop you will wear to
your portrait shoot.

[Dose 4] Prepare WHAT kind of clothing you will wear to
your portrait shoot. Solid colors are probably best unless your a particular
designer or artist for clothes or other artwork. Most business portraits can look natural, just that there are some things to prepare BEFORE we get to the
shoot
before we go for that natural warm glowing smile.
One of those things to do is paying attention to how we dress. Sometimes we might match the background or at least DO NOT clash the background.
So, neutral dark colors may work best.
ALL the attention you do want on YOUR FACE, not your
loud colorful outfit.
RED though is a power color and having a touch of red for business I think is always a great idea. NO patterns and NO stripes.
Mostly a no no a lot of the time.
I know there is another expert in the audience on image consulting and I look forward to her feedback here too. See ya next wednesday coming up for the 5th dose on creating your image.

Dose 5. Makeup to wear for guys and gals during the shoot can cut down on the amount of photoshop time or retouch time the photographer might have to spend onthe computer. Maybe you can consider the extra cost to make that first impression and have a pro handle your makeup unless you are familar with how to make your features on your face look the very best. I would like to hear a ladies perspective on makeup as well.

Ever notice EYE sockets that go DARK?
Getting that sparkle in your subjects EYES.
Lighting Lighting Lighting.
:)
Even this little smiley above sparkles.
Well, maybe not, but I got your attention, No?
45 degrees and EYE level AIM a light into the subjects eyes. That sparkle is called a CATCH LIGHT.
That catch light or sparkle can really bring a portrait to life.

DOSE 9:

Where do you put your hands and legs during a shoot?
Interesting questions.
We probably could discuss this dose for a few weeks.
Maybe we'll do that.
Nothing but posing arms, legs, hands for a few solid weeks.

First thought to leave you to begin.

"Where there is a LIMB, bend it!"

That is the general rule.

So when youre taking your next people portrait, try this.
Bend those limbs.
Sometimes bend a little, just a touch.
Subtle goes a long way.

Kindest regards,
Paul
ps add your arm , leg and limb posing ideas too if you gotone.

Paul Finkelstein

Dose 10

Facial analysis.

Did you know that from the outside corner of your mouth to the outside corner of each eye on EACH side of your FACE are different sizes???????

They are!

Not all photographs or photographers do a facial analysis but once you know the rule, perhaps it's ok to break the rule, but it's worth investigating this tip.

Look in the mirror at yourself.
See which side of your FACE is SHORTER.

This method might make it easy to explain WHY each of us MAY have a GOOD side.
(Course we view ourselves differently than others view us)

I found that my LEFT side of my face is shorter, so I would want to light from the left sid eof my face.

Test yourself out.

Kindest regards,
Paul

Jun 26, 2008 4:43 pmre: Dose 11/ - PhotoTips - ready for your next dose? One way to place images on a network post#

Paul Finkelstein
Tutorial: How to post pictures on a network forum as this
 
So, I will also host the following images doing the SAME thing I teach ya.
:) So, now you know it is possible, easy and doable. 
Anyone can do this for free.
 
Let's try to explain this in steps.
1. First you have to take the picture or have the picture ready to use
(in JPG format is probably best and also in web file size format 72k-96k)
Ever notice that some pics load real s l o w and others load real fast?
Well, the fast ones are low resolution and the s l o w ones are high resolution or just have more info
or pixels in the image file.
 
2. Now that we have a low resolution or low res file or 96k, I like to use -
You need to STORE the image file on either your paid web server or host service.
Free ones like GEOCITIES at yahoo.com are available, but once you use more than so many photos
you loose bandwidth or simply not many people will be able to view the image often.
I use Geocities and also a paid domain name for my company website.
Either place is good and you can pull the image from the host server to your intended webpage or
network forum like a ryze post.
(I can walk you thru how to upload this to a free site or how to upload to your own domain relatively easy on th phone or I can point you to several members here who should be glad to get the attention and help you too.)
 
3.  Once your image is loaded on a server or web host service,
You just use ALL html code which I get easily by copying and pasting.
To do it really quick, I go into outlook, a program on most computers to do this.
There are more than one way to do everything.  So, there are other programs to use to
accomplish this.
 
4. When sending an email in outlook, ever notice that the bottom of that email BEFORE you send it says you can view it in html or view source or code?
 
Let's take a look at the next set of illustrations to walk you thru the process.
If you have ANY questions, NO Ques is dumb, just PM or private message or call me.
 
 
 
 
 
This window ABOVE that opens in outlook is where you insert the url or web address with the image.
 
Now, here's that sample where to host an image for FREE.
:)
 
 
Ready to post a picture in a forum now?
You might need to review these notes again when you have a little more time.
What you put in is what you get out.
Kindest regards,
Paul

Paul,

With all due respect to your expertise and your great willingness to always help, I think you are making it way too complicated to post a photo on a network like this.

All you have to do is surround the url for the photo with a few html tags like this and voila - the photo appears. The photo of course needs to be on a server in order to have a url. So, just put the following tags around your photo url and you're all set:


< IMG SRC=your photo url" >


(Don't put spaces in as I have above. I had to add the spaces so it would show up here on the Web)


I don't even see that little "insert photo" icon on my toolbar and I have a very sophisticated computer. There is an "insert photo" option on Microsoft Word but that has nothing to do with the Internet.

So I think you are providing WAY too much information to members. It was too confusing for me.

By the way, your new photo which you cropped from that larger one, is a great professional shot of you.

Good points Marilyn, 1 html tag is all you need.
But, the above info relates to HOW and where to HOST the photo. Without the hosting place and that tag is useless. :)

With photobucket they GIVE you links to your photos for free. Pretty cool. then I take the link and use the outlook intructions I showed you above. Hey, it's MY way. There IS more than one way to do many things. Esp, photoshop! There are more than 10 ways to do EVERYTHING! Thanks for pushing me to look into this. Maybe this IS easy for newbies. NOTE: The bottom right of this screen shot of photobucket. The link is there to refer back to an image you STORE on their servers. EITHER you use photobucket or your own website host. Either way, you gotta store it somewhere. You can't pull an image out of the sky! :)

When I do use photobucket, it's generally to resize an image. However, when I am done, even though photobucket hosts the image, if it's business related I "save target as" and bring the photo back to my own server or just store it neatly in folders on my computer. I like haven't important images close to my heart :-)

I haven't used Photoshop (my computer came with Corel and I have only used the basic version) but Susan is going to teach me how to size images on another software program called "Gimp" which everyone says is the same as Photoshop with one exception - it's free :-) So it will be good to learn the skills with that until the day when I may want to spread my artistic wings a bit more.

I just want to mention how instrumental Susan has been in changing my technical life and empowering me. She found free software programs for me to use that allow me to work on my server and create all my own website pages now and I never would have suspected that I could have such an instinct for the artistic side of technology.

It's very empowering to have learned the skills myself instead of having to depend on others for every little update. Thanks to Susan, I have earned the distinctive title of "Techno Mama." :-)

Photo images are just the next step in my evolution.

Paul Finkelstein

Here's today's photo tip/dose of info.
EYEBROW or higher height when photographing
individuals.
For groups little lower.
This is a photographers basic rule.
But, once you know the rule, you can adjust from there
for your situation.
So...bring a step stool...walmart sells that plastic
one that folds up and gets you a few inches OFF THE
FLOOR.
That should make the difference in your camera heights.

There is a counterpart to this tip that I learned many years ago from photographers...

When you are having your photo taken, tilt your head ever so slightly down. You don't want the camera looking UP at you. I recall photogs constantly telling me to tilt my head down.

Goes along with Paul's tip for the photographer...

In reply to this, I add that tilting the CHIN slightly down WILL help remove or AVOID glasses glare for our four eyed subjects like myself I wear glasses since the third grade.
I have NON GLARE glasses whioch work great head on...
But for GLASS glasses, THIS slight tily down should do the trick

Nov 06, 2008 4:04 pmWHY the tilt the head in a picture or portrait???/ Tuesday - ready for your next dose?#

Paul Finkelstein



To tilt or No tilt???
Sometimes it's personal preference...but, it's really up to you if you want to look more like a MUG shot or more like a fine pro portrait....
Tilt toward the lighted side is more masculine...
Tilt toward the SHADOW side of a portrait is more feminine.
ALL business headshots look more business like with the TILT toward the lighted side of your face.
business is business...your not modeling or at a party... :)
Unless your business is fashion..rules can be broken but depends on the audience and reasons...
So, a SLIGHT head tilt...NOT too much now...

Ahead of Tues...photo dose of the week....


Bring along a pro photographer EVEN if you have a great shiny new digital camera with so many settings on it etc...

do you really know how to use all those buttons?

Does your photos look like snapshots or do you want to improve the composition?

How bout the lighting??

where do the shadows fall in your pics?

does your digital camera take FAST pics or when you click the shutter button,
it takes what feels like so many seconds and you miss the shot???

If you answer YES to any of these questions..

you MIGHT want to take along a pro photographer and reply on his or her
equip and experience.

Maybe.

Hey...here's my plug...ready...
If you in SE FL...
Call me..

Hope you like this weeks dose.

Hi Photo people!!

In advance of Tuesday thought I'd mention this tip...

Today I was testing out an old camera...but it's still digital...so not that old of a camera..
6 megs...Nikon...etc..
But, this camera, like most consumer point and shoots take FOREVER to focus and take FAST photos!!!
So a D200 or better Nikon for taking fast photos with kids, and sports might be a ket tip.
So, investing in a camera that is FASTER than a point and shoot type or D50 Nikon or below is my tip of the week!

This Sunday will be using a D200 Nikon to capture runners in a marathon in Fort Lauderdale.

:)
Till next Photo dose...ta ta

Paul

http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=90750&id=69486688518&l=e2cfd51e65
With point and shoot cameras, the shutter speed is too slow to catch a lot of action or good action shots.
