Orlando, FL (PRWEB) July 31, 2013
The 2013 Fall Season of Meetings and Conventions are fast approaching and Professional Images Photography has some great advice to help take the stress out of finding, hiring or referring a Convention Photographer. Convention Photography Specialization is important to provide consistent quality covering all aspects of a meeting. This includes Event Photography that has the photographer covering an opening reception that often is part of every meeting. This is the event that starts the meeting and brings attendees together again to reconnect, network and kickoff the meeting on a positive note and the Convention Photographer job is capturing images of not just posed candid’s which are often the case but of people and groups gathering and enjoying the party. The photos should convey excitement, engagement and positive energy showing signage at times in the background. It is these images that are often called the money shots that are shown on Association websites that advertise the next meeting. The next item of importance is the Keynote Speaker, this is a person that is a well known, not just within the meeting but known all over the US and World. This is often the driver for attendance. A Convention Photographer needs to be able to capture strong images of the speaker and that tells a story showing the crowds engaging to his speech, showing any signage speaker is and also shots of attendees asking questions.
Breakout sessions are small groups of attendees that are part of the large conference or convention that discuss specific subjects or aspects of the broad theme of the conference or convention. This is often the hardest to capture due to dark rooms with poor lighting and very tight spaces due to the amount of people. Using a professional long lens helps to get a tight composed image of the speaker without being intrusive to the attendees in the room and knowing how to set the aperture and shutter is key. Too many photographers use auto program, which is not the right way. Convention Photographers always manually adjust exposures and apertures. Using a wide-angle lens captures the entire room showing attendees. These images help the marketing departments to showcase what is in store for the following year.
A Convention Photographer should also have other services. For example Green Screen Photography and Onsite Printing Photography that can also include social media options to help brand and give take away photos to the attendees. Group Photography, Headshots and Online viewing of images to name a few.
A Wedding Photographer and a Convention Photographer are not the same please keep that in mind when looking at websites. Conventions groups don’t use wedding planners so why choose a Wedding Photographer when a Convention Photographer is specialized. The lowest bidders DOES NOT equate quality.
