Top Tips : 6 Event Photography Tips

I get asked to attend lots of events to capture the day in photographs.  Here are my top 6 tips for event photography. 

  1. Plan ahead - this could simply mean getting to the venue early enough to make sure you know what is happening where.
  2. Move around the room/event - this helps people get used to you and your camera.  As people get used to you being around they will drop their guard and you will get some great natural photographs.
  3. Cover your angles - if you are taking photographs of a speaker giving a presentation try to take some close up, wide (to include the audience), shots from behind the speaker so you can see the audiences faces and use a lower angle to include the back of some of the guests to give depth.
  4. Capture the detail -  take some detail shots of what is happening at the event - not all your photographs have to include people in them.  
  5. Avoid taking photographs of people eating - no one ever looks good eating.
  6. If you are using flash try to bounce the flash from a ceiling or wall in a directional manner (think about where you want the light to fall) - which will make the light softer, directional and avoid the awful look of direct flash.

That's my top tips for event photography, but if you don't want to do it yourself but still want your event documented in photographs contact Serco Video and Photography.
