How Professional Photographers Make Snapshot Photos #celebratephotography
Interesting and insightful article detailing professional photographers’ strategies for snapshots from Popular Photography:
“More snapshots are being made every day than ever before,” says Preston Utley, a Denver-based wedding photographer who also produces The Snapshot Diaries, a website dedicated to his everyday pics. “Photography has become the universal language, and photo sharing sites like Snapchat, Instagram, and Facebook have made snapshots the most popular way to share experiences.”
The better these everyday photos, the better we can share the passions, emotions, and simple details of our lives. And the pros we interviewed all agree that taking more engaging day-to-day snapshots improves their professional images, too.
For many of us, our best snapshots can feel like photographic gifts of fate. But not for these pros. More often than not, they bring the same focus and planning to snapshooting that they bring to their day jobs.
