Our TIPS for creating awesome content
Define & Concept
Take some time to iron out the details for the project. We always have a mini brainstorm sesh before we begin creating. Write down the project details and all of your ideas on paper, so you can plan out your photo shoot:
- What is the brand's goal?
- What is the subject matter? (product)
- What is the creative concept?
- What kind of shots do we want to capture? (video? stills? Insta-story?)
- Plan out your photoshoot
Post-Production: Compose & Crop Images
After you've shot your images, the post-production process begins. We encourage you to find and create your own style / aesthetic for your images. The last step of the post-production process is KEY for producing high-quality content across all platforms. We always crop our images appropriately for the platforms we use most:
- Instagram: square (or vertical)
- Blog: horizontal
Cropping gives us the opportunity to re-compose the image. Sometimes a raw image may seem boring as-is, but cropping in on a certain part can make the final image a winner!
