When shooting “camera-aware” pictures at events, here’s a tip:
Shoot every picture twice.
You should tell your subjects “we’ll do it twice”, and then do two shots.
- People blink. But not twice.
- You may get focus wrong in one shot – but not in both.
- One or both subjects may relax after shot 1 – or stiffen.
Either way – there is a very good chance that one image will be markedly better than the other. And the better image is the only one you show.
That’s why you do this: it makes you a more successful photographer. Pros cannot fail!
