In this blog post, we will share our five top tips, so you can make the most out of your time at the event by taking the perfect content-worthy photos for your socials just by using your Phone!
Always include branding.
When taking your photo, always remember to show off and market your branding. Make sure the branding is clear and recognisable from your photo. Don’t forget to take pictures of your stand when it’s nice and busy with people with your branding in the shot too!
Get product photos in situ.
Think positioning, background and lighting to create those clean lines, and with great lighting you can instantly highlight those important details of your product and bring the feeling of your event to life.
That’s your team, any ambassadors or influencers and people at your stand!
People like to buy from people, so show the people involved in your business and sell a feeling and a connection. Get team photos and shots of your ambassadors and influencers at your stand and with your product; that’s people wearing your product, or eating your product. Think about each image bringing the right message to the right customer, that will inspire your audience and your customers to buy from you.
Think forward and get varied photos.
Our key top tip on how to take photos with your Phone is to make sure to clean your camera lens! Everyone always forgets this very important tip. Also, ensure to take varied images during the day and take photos of landscape and portraits for later use. When framing up your perfect photo, be aware of what cropping may happen when uploading to your socials too, so make sure your focus is centred.
Make your photos pop!
When it comes to social media you need your photos to pop, to engage with your audience and make you stand out when your audience is actively scrolling feeds. Play with lighting, filters and editing apps so your photos are bright and clear. We recommend the Snapseed or Lightroom Express apps to edit your photos.
