>>3336689>>3337115>and I can't tell if people like my photos because they're good, or if they like the photos because they like me
It's because they like you
You've only posted 3 shots but they're all terrible. My original response is still on-point though- you're going to have to take shit photos for a while and there's no reason not to post and share them to grow faster and sus what works and what doesn't- it's what I did and why my old instagram posts are mostly garbage
tl;dr You're shit but keep shooting>>3337142
Over a second or two and nothing helps much. Handheld gyro is the cheap option- they're as little as £20 on amazon>>3337614
Parkinsons- slow shutter speed and spasticly moving friend>>3337915>What are some things I can read up on?
A better thing to do is shoot one for free before then- experience is always best, particularly when dealing with and managing people>>3337915>What lenses would be best to use?
Depends on the event- outdoor you typically want somewhere wide- 16 to 35mm so you can get reasonable portraits but also group/stage stuff. Indoors you want to stay on the low end. Parks and stuff you likely want to head towards 50mm
Obviously a zoom is usually the better choice but if you're confident changing lenses and not missing anything then primes can work>>3337915>What additional equipment should I think about?
A good strobe, trigger, light stand and diffuser, and tripod.>>3337915>>nightmare mode: Im introverted and prefer not to interact too much with people. But down want to let my friend down.
Somewhat similar, and I had my first formal/professional shoot the other day- out doors and we had a bunch of performers/comedians arrive for some free photography (though I've since made a few bucks on it after being contacted) outdoors- so it was mostly just about talking to them and finding out what their show is and what they're looking for (PR shots, headshots, etc), and mixing the two into nice shots...
