. . .Make your shot one that they will see daily

What do you do with your best image from a shoot?

If your answer is “sell them Package C,” you got the wrong outlook.

Because if you want to make money at photography today the correct answer is going to be closer to “All of the Above.”

Don’t limit yourself to 8x10s, 5x7s and wallets. There’s a whole new world of products out there and you get paid for each one of them. All you have to do to get in on the bigger range of opportunities is to broaden your thinking when talking to the mom who is excited about what you have shown her.

Canvas Wraps Make GREAT add-ons!

For instance, how about a museum mount canvas print? Or a “stand out” mount? Or have two photos prepared for the end table, imprinted on a hardwood, hinged “deskmate?”

What else? Well, about a million things including cling (moveable) Posters for kids’ shots, Calendars with a different photo on each page, Laptop Skins, Jigsaw Puzzles, Refrigerator Magnets for mom. And . . .

Photo Coasters Make a GREAT Gift

• Pillows  • Coasters with Holder  • Beverage Holders (koozies)  • Coffee mugs 11 oz  • Fleece Blankets  • Key Chains  • Bag Tags  • Dog Tags  • Banners  • Mouse Pads  • Dry Erase Boards  • Bookmarks • Stainless Steel Travel Mugs  • Water Bottles  • T-Shirts  • Statuettes (cut outs with stand)  • Pennants  • 6” Round Vinyl clings  • Greeting Cards  • 3″ Buttons  • Post cards  • Bumper Stickers  • Auto License Plates  • Trading cards  • Sports Balls (baseball and softballs and small footballs, soccer balls, hockey pucks and  basketballs)

Who says you can’t add an extra 50 percent income to many of your shoots?

Studio Lighting Technique: Using the Ring Light

June 29, 2010 by

Comments Off

Do You Want to Start Capturing Images Like These?

In this video tutorial, we show you a fun studio lighting technique using the Ring Light for portraits and glamour photography. It  is perfect for models  & high school seniors who want a unique high fashion magazine look.

Typically, the photographers goal is to create a three dimensional look through the use of various studio lighting techniques.

The ring light breaks these rules – which is often the reason why it it popular.

A  ring light gives a unique look, because all light is coming from the front, imparting a virtually shadowless look onto the front of your subject, while even shadows show around the edges of any three-dimensional surface.

This look is possible in part because the camera lens sets in the very middle of the light source.   See Ring Light on White Lightning’s Website

Here are some more examples of the shots we took.

We can show you how to do it!

When you become a StudioStyles subscriber we will show you step-by-step how to use the Ring Light.

Watch and learn as Mike has some fun using the Ring Light with different background effects
