What sort of image?
One of the first questions I ask clients is where the images will be used. This is the most important thing to establish as this dictates the type of shot you need.
The main places that images are used are as follows:
- PR – used in magazines and other promotional material
- Online – on your own website or others e.g. facebook.
There are also two main styles that are used those being Lifestyle and Still Life on White . Each has their merits and their own place. It really does depend on what you are doing with your images so really do give this some consideration.
