The selection process for photographers and videographers is often talked about but is one of the most critical skills for a shooter. The decision process when choosing specific photos and clips over other is arguably the most important part of the process as it decides what the world will see. The difference between an ok and great shot could be two inches in composition, or the slightest change in lighting, or the subject’s body position. In this episode we dive into the value of being strict with your selects, why its necessary at times to “kill your darlings”, and methods of moving through the selection process quickly. ✘ Want to make more money from your clients?
