How To Photograph A Conference

Posted on: 16 November 2008

While there are a good number of photographers out there who will offer advise on how to shoot a wedding or the best way to do portraiture or expert advise on landscape photography, I’ve not seen this one before–How to photograph a conference. I’ve been to conferences and wanted to photograph some but I seem to run into a host of issues like the details of lighting and setting up a tripod where I won’t be in somebody’s way to permission to photograph those on stage.

In this article from dPS you’ll learn about these 10 things:

  • Bring extra batteries, memory cards, your cables, and chargers
  • Get out of auto mode
  • Be unobtrusive. Casual shots are better
  • Pay attention to the background
  • Try not to use the flash
  • Pay attention to the lighting
  • Set the white balance
  • More is better
  • Zoom less, walk more
  • Have fun

If you think about it conferences are a little like family reunions. If you’re planning an upcoming holiday with family and friends indoors, many (if not all) of these tips could apply.
