A few tips, on and off over the next few days, about shooting events. Events such as parties, clubs, openings: lots of people and they are camera aware.
Today: What to shoot. I recommend that you shoot “all three views”:
- Overview shots, showing “the whole thing”: wide shots with the entire venue, entire room, and so on.
- Medium shots, with one or two people
- And finally: detail shots. An aspect of the room. The stereo and a CD that’s playing Notes on the fridge. Or like in this shot, the food:
(Can you see that I bounced the flash off the ceiling behind me?)
If you shoot plenty of all three views, you will have plenty of material for a great album. And people remember the details!
