WPPI Highlights Part 1
This WPPI (Wedding and Portrait Photographers International) has been a great show already with tons of great speakers, two huge ballrooms of vendors, and lots of great networking with other photographers. Unfortunately you can’t be in multiple places at the same time so you have to pick and choose which speakers to go see. Right off the bat I headed over to see David Ziser. David was testing out some new material for his upcoming Digital Wake-Up Tour and if this talk is any indication, the tour is going to be a must-attend if you want to take your images to a whole new level. David discussed off-camera lighting to add depth, detail, dimension, and color saturation to your images. Go sign up and reserve your seat now.
Want to make your shooting easier so you do less cropping in post production? CropLines has the answer with engraved focus screens for 8×10, Rue of thirds, school portrait, or other designs so that you can nail your image in-camera.
Many photographers use or are considering flash brackets so that you can keep your accessory flash above your camera regardless of whether or not you have your camera in its vertical or horizontal position. The Reporter Flash Ring is one of the simplest flash brackets I have ever seen Instead of a series of hinges and brackets, the Reporter Flash Ring has a rong around the lens that doesn’t move and the flash slides around on the ring on a set of rollers. The design is simple and effective.
While not everyone wants their own photobooth, if you are looking to make you own, check out the new photobooth software from TOFURIOS. Their photobooth software is the best I have seen so far.
Stay tuned, more to come!
