:huh:

 

Hello PN family.

 

The PJster has been busy with his camies doing photo-shoots and was asked to do a Prom Photo-Shoot. No experience in this mode of action but I know that my PNers have experience and good advice for the PJski.

 

Asking for any tips, procedures and advice on accomplishing this mission. Date of shoot ... 30 May 2015.

 

Thanks.

 

:)

Well for most Proms Jazzer you set up a photo station with a back drop and a lighting setup with a soft box at a minimum. The couples photos are done at the photo station and then you do the King and Queen shots with their court. Plus the usual walk around candid shots of dancing etc but the most important was the entry shots at the photo station and then the King and Queen shots.

 

You will need to see how they are setup and what they expect and how much you will charge for the shots. Some prom photogs now even print on site and have the display folders to mount the photos in and sell the photos right there.

PJ,

 

If you did have to shoot in a crowded place, you would definitely want to cordon off your space. If you don't you will have people traipsing through, usually  between you and client. I use red flagging tape to make my space.

 

Good luck and we look forward to seeing your work.

Thanks Jim and Charles.

 

I will not be at the prom only at my niece's house. Doing before she departs for the prom. I will have the area blocked off.

PJ...you definitely have to make space for yourself...Everybody with a cell phone and iPad will be taking pictures. Did my niece and nephew's prom...People will be all in your way especially when they get ready to leave and you are outside.

Hi PJ,

I would just shoot if you were shooting a decent wedding,

At the proms house, at the hairdressers/make up, 

Make sure there are images with the parents at the best locations at the home, and anybody assisting, (relations and friends always buy images with their image in there)

Image of pick-up in the limo

Images of arrival, in the limo, getting out etc

Images of her partner, family etc at his/her  :) , house, same deal, include parents and friends, 

take plenty of film, at least 12 rolls, oops, just realised its 2015! :lol: No, just take plenty of cards and back-up battery

 

The rest is easy,

Do a recon of the location, try and get some dialog of proceedings and communicate with the MC etc

Take as many images on location with their friends

Images leaving etc

........Gary
