Heyy Heyy y’all! Today I am giving you a bunch of words that are always floating around the photography industry that you may not know but, NEED to know before taking the jump into your business.
Ready for the rapid fire?
Straight Out Of Camera; what an image looks like immediately on the back of or straight from the camera with absolutely no manipulation or editing.
The amount of money a photographer takes up front in order to book your session. Usually non-refundable since it is meant to cover their time they’ve already spent in the booking process. (Best to be referred to as a “retainer” as the word “deposit” insinuates that it is refundable.
The act of sorting through images and getting rid of the out of focus, duplicates, blinking shots, etc.
The text or logo a photographer puts over an image (usually slightly transparent) in order to prevent the image from being stolen.
Cost Of Doing Business; any expense a business incurs while in the process of conducting business. What it costs you to run and operate your business per day, week, month, and or year.
The blur in the background that caused by what the camera’s aperture is set on.
The time frame 20-30 minutes after sunset or before sunrise when there is just a tiny bit of sun giving the entire sky a deep blue color.
The timeframe roughly 30 minutes before sunset or before sunrise when the sun gives everything a soft golden glow (my favorite time to shoot.) 😉
A photograph that is taken without a stiff or posed appearance (what I personally strive to deliver.) 💃
The shooting mode in which the photographer has full control over every single setting within the camera.
In Person Sales; the practice of meeting with clients in person to show and sell photographs (usually prints & products,) rather than sending them access to the digital downloads via an online gallery.
