On the Couch with Naomi Reiter Photography

Image
I am really not very comfortable in front of the camera. I get quite nervous so this was great practice and as you can see ended up being a lot of fun. 


We only did one practice prior to this video and this is a straight take, no editing (other than text and transitions). We used natural window lighting plus the lamp in the background for ambience because we wanted the living room affect.


I definitely think this will be an ongoing event. Who would you like to see interviewed next?

Location Headshots Give A Consistent Professional Look To Company Website

Image
CONSISTENT IMAGES COMMUNICATE PROFESSINALISM...
As well as getting images of the entire available staff at once, what I love about location shoots is that the client gets a consistent look across all of their images. This in turn gives their website a uniformity that communicates professionalism. When the "ABOUT" page on a website hosts a number of images which are inconsistent, it makes that company look in incohesive, or even disjointed.

TRY MAKING THE SHOOT AT THE SAME TIME AS THE BOARD MEETING...
The gear and the photographer also make a difference. We had another photographer shoot in another State with my instructions and the images were completely different. So I guess the only real way to get true consistency is to use the same photographer as best as the budget allows. Sometimes this means waiting for the next board meeting and doing the photo session then!

LinkedIn Headshot Session with a twist! - Portrait Shoot in Chatswood, Sydney Studio

Image
Generally, we go for the more conservative background colours but for this LinkedIn headshot session, we not only got to break out the coloured backdrops, we also got to shoot some more dramatic black and white portraits.

Why not, right? You want to stand out, make a statement. Especially on LinkedIn. If you scroll through all those profiles, you know who is going to make the biggest impact. Mike here will. One, because he took the time to have a professional photo but also because he chose a fabulous blue. 

We still shot on the more conservative background but now Mike has choices! 

These images are perfect for a variety of purposes not only for LinkedIn but for his website, professional organisation website, Facebook profile and as a gift for his wife!



How To Setup a Remote Triggered Photo Booth

Image
These are the most fun shoots! Even better than an actual booth because you get to use awesome equipment and hang out with fun people!






To setup my Photo Booth, I used the following gear:
Canon 1D X
ProFoto B1
Octabox with grid
3 x Pocket Wizard Plus II's
1 x Flash Sync Cable
1 x Remote cable
Lightstand
Tripod
32GB Memory Card



1. LIGHTS - I setup my light or lights, depending on the scope of the backdrop and the look I am going for. I have previously used my Alien Bee Strobes and more recently, Profoto B1's. You could probably use Speedlites too. I've just never found them reliable or battery efficient besides, the quality of light from the Profoto or even the Bees, is infinitely better. Besides which, you would need two to get the job done nicely.
2. TRIPOD - I setup my camera onto a Tripod. A good sturdy tripod is useful, especially if there is going to be alcohol at the venue!

3. POCKET WIZARDS - I hook up my remote flash/camera triggers. I use Pocket Wizard II's (yes they are st…
