There is so much you can learn in wedding photography and so much to explore. After determining your style and tone, you are probably eager to explore something new. With multiple successes on previous weddings it is only fitting that you begin to explore new ways to revamp your pictures and results to even better or expand your service and package.
Do not proceed to a new line of photography
You might be bored. Yes, we all mostly have reached that point where we are just bored with what we are doing and would like to take a rest from it, thinking about exploring something totally new. But should you do that?
Yes, even if that line is going to be food photography, it is still photography. But the techniques and orientations are totally different. Sudden change in the line will not give you credibility. Instead, you can be dubbed as unprofessional as you don’t specialize or focus in any specific line of photography.
However, if you are planning to delve into a more varied wedding photography, such as engagement, boudoir or even become the emerging gay wedding photographer, do so as it enhances your knowledge of wedding and shows that you are still a professional in the field.
There’s the usual poses, modified poses and totally new poses. Couples may get bored if they see the same pose and idea over and over again, which demands you to brainstorm something new that you can offer to your clients and ensure that nobody will have the same picture and it really emphasizes them.
It can be somewhere within the country and somewhere abroad! Take the chance when destination wedding is offered to you. Explore the new perspectives and ways of capturing things. Not only will this increase your credibility and market; it will also inspire you by gaining various perspectives and ways of capturing things.
Do not take things lightly. If it is somewhere that you are not familiar to, make the extra effort of researching about the venue, previous wedding photographs taken there and visiting the place yourself before the wedding day and arriving earlier to the site.
Change in time
Accept it that things change and stuffs that you did 20 years ago to your pictures are considered old school by now and that you need to continue learning and honing your skill. Update yourself with the latest trend and fad and even new markets, such as becoming a gay wedding photographer.
Do not let yourself be satisfied and assume that all your clients are satisfied with the same way and method over and over again. Always strive to find something new to add and changes you can make to deliver an even better service to your client.
Subscribing and attending seminars as well as community meets can help with this. There are many associations filled with passionate photographers who are always eager to share experiences with each other and their new methods and ideas they incorporated when faced with problems and opportunities.
Being a photographer is about creativity and never stop learning!
