Top February Posts from theLoop - PPA Today

Top February Posts from theLoop

By Sarah Ackerman

We got an extra day to get down to business in February (hooray for Leap Day)! Since you have an extra 24 hours this year, take some time and check in on some of our top discussions from theLoop!

Do you struggle with light ratios? You're not alone! Check out this great thread on how to understand them and where to get some extra help. 

Are you less than pleased with your accounting and book keeping systems? Read up on what works for your fellow photographers and what programs you might want to avoid. You didn't get into photography because you love accounting, so take a few moments and see if making a switch can streamline your business! 

Social media can be confusing. So many platforms to put your work out there, but are you sure any of it works? Join one photographer on a journey of Facebook pages vs. personal profiles vs. Instagram and everything in between. Whether you're a social media novice or pro, this is a great read!

Obtaining releases for street/public photography has come up a lot in recent years! When do you need a release? When do you not? What are your usage rights for an image you don't have releases for? Get in this discussion and know where you legally stand.

Do you often do corporate headshots? If so, what's the appropriate file size and do you keep your water mark on them? Jump in on this thread to see how your peers handle this situation. 

Headshots are a hot topic this month! How many can you complete in an hour? Help a fellow photographer out and estimate how many clients she can photograph in an hour. Even if headshots aren't in your product line, it's a great read on time management! 

Do different product lines constitute having different websites? How many websites is too many? If you have a diverse business, this is a great thread to get some ideas on how to streamline your website maintenance and web traffic. 

Finding the right light is key to creating any beautiful image! Get a quick lesson in lumens and see what light(s) are right for any project in this active thread!
