We live in a time where the great majority of the population has access to a camera they can carry with them at all times. This may seems like a positive thing, but to be honest, someone who has spent a good amount of time refining their photography skills would tell you it’s really not. We don’t like to say a lot of negative things here at Titan Throw, but we are not alone in thinking that cell phone cameras are the bane of good photography. That’s not to say you can’t use them to take beautiful pictures, but there are reasons why it’s better to leave things to a professional. This is particularly important when you are dealing with once in a lifetime occasions. Allow me to make my case by listing three excellent reasons why you should hire someone that knows what they’re doing for those special moments.
1. You Can Enjoy the Moment
Let’s get this out of the way for those of you that actually have some experience in photography. Even if you are a really good photographer, wouldn’t you rather let someone else do the heavy lifting while you give all your attention to the moment unfolding before your eyes? No matter which way you slice it, if you are multitasking you are unable to give something your full attention. So just kick back and let others do the work for you!
2. We Have Both Equipment and Experience
What if a good friend of yours just bought a really expensive camera? They could take your wedding pictures for you, right? Sure, if your friend is not a complete dummy, and the camera is capable enough, you might get lucky and get some decent pictures. But gear is only half of the equation, maybe less. You need someone who actually knows the strengths and limitations of their equipment. You’re not only paying to have access to expensive equipment, you are also paying for the countless hours it has taken us to refine our craft.
3. You Will Have Quality Images
Let me reuse the example of having your friend take your pictures for you. Imagine you went that route, and your friend churns out 300+ pictures for you to choose from. Most of them out of focus, poorly lit, or cropped strangely. Had you gone with a professional photographer, you would have received a lot less pictures, but each of them would be nearly flawless. When it comes to special moments, quality will trump quantity every single time. The difference between a good picture and and amazing one is that the latter took a lot more time and effort to compose, and then some more to refine.
Your definition of what a special occasion is may vary, but I think most of you would agree that it would be much better to have it immortalized in the best conditions than lousily.
