A great reason for offering your clients a Lush Album is that you get to create a story with a number of their favorite images. However, creating a great story isn’t always easy. If you want to create a compelling story in a photo album you are going to need a mix of sharp emotive portraits, fast moving action images, and wide shots as well as close ups. Capturing all of these types of images during each of your photo shoots will ensure that you have a great variety of images to create a visually interesting, page-turning album.
At times, it may seem that in order to get all these different shots, you have to have all the gear you can possibly imagine (even when it’s not in your budget). But there are plenty of ways for photographers to get all the shots for the entire story without having to use a warehouse full of gear. In the videos below, Tamara Lackey shows you how you can use a single lens to capture almost any image you may need to tell your client’s complete story.
In the first video, Tamara shows you how you can use a single versatile lens to capture extraordinary macro images, beautiful close ups, and classic portraits. The video shows you exactly how to capture great macro images using either auto-focus or manual focus, and Tamara explains in detail how she changes her settings when shooting in manual mode.
In the second video, Tamara shows you how she uses the same lens (AF-S VR Micro-Nikkor 105mm f/2.8G IF-ED) to capture action. Like the first video, she goes into detail about her manual mode settings, and explains exactly what settings are required to freeze her active subject. Then Tamara talks about how she gets perfect focus, even on a moving subject.
Follow the tips in these videos and you will be on your way to capturing all the shots you need for a compelling album. Then all you have to do is use Fundy’s incredible software to lay out the images to tell a great story. Your clients will love their new Lush Album and they will love you for creating it for them!
