Ismail Sirdah Shares Ways to Use Photography to Boost Engagement
How does a nearly 40% boost in engagement on your social media outlets sound? Ismail Sirdah is a professional photographer whose work has seen this level of feedback for many of his clients. The following are just a few of the methods Ismail uses to achieve these results.
Do I Need an Expensive Camera for Good Photos?
You don’t necessarily need to have a professional camera to capture good photographs. Smartphones have incredible cameras and have snapped some of the top award-winning photographs in the world. You can download apps to enhance your photos and some of these apps are so versatile that several full-length movies have been filmed entirely on smartphones using them.
What Types of Photos Work Best for Social Media?
If you want to set yourself and your brand apart, you need to create your own photographs instead of using basic stock photos. Studies tell us that social media posts with images receive at least double the engagement of text-only posts. The more relatable your picture is then the more shares it will receive.
Tips for Taking Good Photos
If you’ll be using a public space for your photoshoot then make sure you plan ahead and go before the public gets there. A great time for most outdoor places is at sunrise when the lighting is just right and there’s no one in sight. Ismail uses the ShotHotSpot app to find the best locations for his photoshoots. Make sure you capture your photos with a variety of different backdrops.
Best Places to Get Good Photos
The best backdrops are found right in the natural beauty that surrounds us. If you live near water, a waterfront photo shoot is a must. Some favorite times of day to capture a beautiful shot are during sunrise and sunset. Another great spot for photos is a state park because they are full of beautiful backdrops for your photos.
Inexpensive Indoor Backdrop Ideas
If you want to stay indoors, Ismail Sirdah has some tips for creating an inexpensive backdrop in your home. These strategies use basic things found in your home and won’t cost you any extra money. Here are his ideas for some inexpensive backdrops:
You can snap a variety of photographs against your favorite places outdoors and then head inside to add more variety. You want to have a large portfolio to grab from to have a steady flow of one-of-a-kind photographs for your social media.
