Enhance Your Own Photography Portfolio, Just by Adding a Wedding to it!

Weddings are a grand affair, not just for the couple getting married, but for all the others who have put in much time and effort to make the event a successful, joyous and a memorable one. A photographer does the most basic and significant job there – capturing those extraordinary moments and in the most beautiful way possible!

We here will tell you how by capturing a wedding, you enrich your portfolio in so many different photography categories

1. Candid Photography – A wedding is full of emotions and all sorts of emotions – right from nervousness on the bride’s face to a cold feet groom, a teary eyed set of bride’s parents to a totally frolic bunch of friends , you as a photographer can capture all these emotions under the Candid Photography label.

2. Culture Photography – The very recent genre in photography could very well be enhanced in your portfolio with a few wedding snippets attached to it. No matter which part of the world it is, every wedding is a portrayal of the culture, customs and rituals of the community. Customs and ceremonies happening in a wedding could very well be used to represent a specific region and its people.

3. Heritage Photography – Destination weddings is your answer to this one! With more and more couples choosing to be wed at some scenic place, your portfolio can encompass places and backgrounds of heritage value. You can be clever, reach a little before the scheduled time of the couple shoot and get few snippets for your own collection!! Win-win situation, isn’t it?

4. Portrait Photography – This HAS to be the most important component of any photography portfolio. A wedding offers a wide range of willing posers in the best of their attires and even wider range of random shots which just make it to the best of your Portraits captured ever! Apart from the bride and the groom, there are adorable kids, gracefully wrinkled clan, the help and even the flower guy! Anyone can give you that “Your best portrait till date”- so, do look around and get the best while you can!

5. Experimental Photography – If you are a little bored, or feeling productive or are made to wait before you begin shooting the main subjects, look around and have some weird fun with your camera. You can experiment with anything and everything – it only depends on high your imagination is soaring at the moment. Food, forks, objects, shoes- it could be just anything.

5 Awesome Ways to Become An Instant Celebrity

Art in any form attracts you, you love people with creative instincts, you try attending all the art exhibitions, photo exhibitions, you love reading good writing pieces and you yourself also compose something in the night under your table lamp?? Congratulations, you qualify all the requirements of being called an artist and an art lover!

Now that you are a proven artist you can continue reading below.

An artist suffers from many difficult phases in his journey of being an artist, being called an artist and improving as an artist. And to your rescue comes our much loved child Social Media. Social media is not only about socializing these days; it has the capacity of giving you and your art the wings to fly and fly high.

Here’s how you can use it: 1 problem, 5 solutions.

#1 Make your display counter: Begin by creating a dedicated Facebook page (page and not profile) or a blog for your artworks. Love it like your personal diary which is open for public reading. Decorate it with all your chosen artworks, may it be stories, poems or photographs. Give an enhanced peek-a-boo in your own art-gallery and make it public to let all the eyes in the world see it.(Read here: Blogging your way)

#2 Audience is your God: Identify your audience and its whereabouts. Analyze what kind of people would like your artwork or be interested in it, whether such people are more active on facebook or on blogs. Two ways to carry it forward would be:

  • Grow within your circle: First becomes a star in your own group. Invite friends to visit your facebook page or blog by filling up their inboxes with constant updates about your page/blog. Share links, status messages and other updates with them by email or direct messages.
  • Go Public: Set your blogs/page for public viewing. Visit other blogs, post your comments on their posts so that they come back to check out your profile and find your blog/page instead. Every time you update your page/blog, share a link to it on your personal facebook profile, G+ and wherever else you have an account.

#3 Remember Twitter: Twitter remains the supreme of all the social networking sites being perfect place for sharing links and making the world see it. If you don’t have twitter account yet, open it right away. (Read here: Tips for artists to use twitter) Follow, get followed and share, share, and share.

#4 Visit other houses as well: Making a page/blog and inviting guest/audiences there is all about hosting. Now learn about being a wise guest as well. There are many forums, facebook groups, communities which are dedicated to individual ideas/genres. Join them now! Start posting, sharing, liking there. There will be many people out there who will be just like you and they would treat you the same way. Eventually, you will get connected to so many Likeminded friends.

#5 You v/s him: Now that you are an artist-star by every means, show some mettle elsewhere also. Search for various talent contests that go online. This doesn’t takes much on your time and effort and instead winning it or even getting shortlisted in it, adds big time to your credibility. If there is an evidence of award say a gift or a certificate, share that as well on your page/blog and express your gratitude. (Read here: Warnings before entering an online contest).

As an artist it’s very important to understand the people, the art is exposed to. Reciting a poetry in the middle of hippies would never earn you more than a laugh. Therefore connect right and connect well!!

Happy creating, sharing and applauding!!
