Why Should You Shoot Tethered?

So why shoot tethered? Because obviously, you need to connect your camera, which we'll talk about in a minute. Is it just not easier to shoot to card, and then download to Capture One like we saw yesterday? So what's the benefit? For me, as a professional photographer, there are a lot of benefits, actually, to shooting tethered. Firstly, there's the collaborative energy that comes with that. For example, even early in my career, one of the first lessons I learned was surround yourself with the best crew. The best hair, the best makeup, the best styling, and it will raise the level of your work. And I've lived like that, I've made my living like that. With tethering now, that was back in the film days. So tethering now, it's almost been revelatory, in that it takes that collaboration to the next level. Because everybody can be looking through that camera with you, and really with you on that shot. And shape the shot. And help you create that work. Rather than, chimping around a ...

tiny little LCD display. Exactly. It takes that collaboration to the next level, and I rely on that. I want the makeup artist to be right there, and the hair stylist to be right there, and the stylist, who's doing the clothing, to be really on everything, and they can see what I'm seeing, and that's just so helpful. And 'cause we can shape how the shot is gonna look on the fly. The client gets, maybe not the final final result after retouch for example, but very close to what the final result's gonna be. My digital tech can, if there's a specific look that we're going for, or a specific recipe, as I'm shooting, they can apply that recipe. It's kind of like a little video village. Yes (chuckles). That you would find on a film set, where everybody can look, and see what the final image is going to be like. And then you know besides that, then you also have the security of shooting tethered. Where you can, instead of shooting just to a card, and having that one copy, you can download to a computer, you can go and back it up from there. I mean the security of it also brings a little bit more peace. Definitely.
