Four features you must have on your camera

Old Spitalfields market East London, England

“I turn my camera on, I cut my fingers on the way”

Can’t say I’ve cut my fingers when I’ve turned on my camera as Spoon did in 2005 in a song called, unexpectedly, “I turn my camera on”.

I have, though, been in the embarrassing position of not being able to turn on a feature I was looking for and consequentially lost the moment.

That’s why it’s so important to know how your camera works and what features you need

So, the next in my series on features to have on your camera comes in two sections

4 features you must have on your camera

8 more features to have on your camera

At the end of the series (there’s one more to go), if you haven’t had time to read them all, then you can scroll to the bottom of the last post and get all four in a PDF.

Don’t forget even if you are not in the market for a new piece of kit, these articles apply to your existing camera or even Smartphone.

So, I hope you get something out of these.

Feel free to pass onto anyone you know who may get something out of this.

And why you are feeling free, let me know your thoughts on what else is a challenge for you in marketing and photography?

Just comment below and I’ll get your response straight into my inbox.

OK bye for now and talk to you next time

8 reasons to post Images and Visual Content online

Why good photography is a great investment for any small business

“Don’t let nobody take care of your business better than you!”

So wrote James Brown in his lesser known song “It’s a new day” and he is as right today as he was in 1970

You see

In the game of marketing the big brands are winning hands down.

They hire large marketing companies and/or specialist photographers to make their brands stand out in an increasingly crowded market.

So does that mean that the small business like you can’t compete in the visual stakes?

Of course not!

As I wrote in 8 reasons to post Images and Visual Content online the internet has changed things for the better.

Expanding on that subject – well sort of anyway –
Why good photography is a great investment for any small business is pretty self-explanatory.
