Photo Week Bus Tour - Clip 12

All right, we're going live right now. We are live here on creative live. We're live on periscope here with jasmine star, and we have stopped in the middle of our bus tour here. Credit lives sort a week, two thousand five eighteen and we wanted to stop this park and talk a little bit about social media. Of course, when you're on a road trip, it's all about showing people where you are as well as in your business, but we wanted to see what our four instructors jasmine star supervised matt paszkowski and victor hall would dio at a stop for social media let's make some media for social media. So, jasmine, tell us, what's going on right now, okay, so I'm actually talked to the paris club audiences that's okay? Because I'm gonna be showing how I would do it in relies first on the most I think you cannot. I need the people who are on periscope to drop a little bit of a line to the weekly show the internet. What is that? Because it is saturday morning and you're probably enjoying time with yo...

ur family. You're gearing up for a wedding or you just want to learn more about photography. So if you're there holler back at your girl make me feel not so alone hey great, this is perfect so what I want to focus on is the importance of using three main components for periscope you want to show what you do, which is photography who you are as a master behind what you do and why you do it so if you can use paris good to leverage that in that form of social media that's how you're going to be leveraging into most because they see a lot of photographer saying, hey, I'm at the grand canyon and they shoot video and that's great hey, I'm on an engagement shoot, but they're not actually using all three components, so if I were to use it say, on an engagement shoe, I see a lot of people coming in and for those you guys who are sharing this on twitter, I appreciate it, so what I want to do is if I'm an engagement session, I'm actually giving tips to my clients because I'm instructing them but those who are watching both perspective clients and other photographers is actually good thing because I'm educating photographers on what I do, but I'm also educating other perspective clients what I want them to do on a future shoot so that's just fantastic secondly, I want to showcase who I am so yes is it that I'm a little bit I talk too fast, maybe or you just listen slow. Could it be that I have an awkward or quirky sense of humor? Yes, quite possibly. Could it be then I talk too loud or used to much of my hands when he talked. Quite possibly that is the case to whoever you are, show that off, because the more that people know you, the more that they will be certain they want to hire you. Or they totally and completely do not want to hire you. I want to work with people who love my work and love me, justus much of the same, but you're not going able to attract thing unless they're actually showing it. Then lastly, we talked about the why? Why are you sharing the social media? You want to connect with people you want to help other people and you want to showcase why you do and why you love it so they fit the end. I will also I will always and my shoot thinking that people were watching. I think my clients and then I also want to let people know that I do it because I love it. It makes me feel whole, and it makes me phil full and on that note of filling all of those things, we're going to toss it on over to sue price, I'm going to be her photo subjects, so I'm gonna end this broadcast, but you guys can go to creative, live dot com forward, slash a live one, and you will see what's going on over there, so we're going to end this meta meets meta live broadcast things guys were seeming, and I appreciate it. All right? So that was that. Thank you for your tips. We're live. We're walking, we're alive. We're going just television people let's. Come over and see what store for. Okay, stand right here. My gorgeous subject today is beautiful. Just star. All right, so I just uploaded a video to instagram and while I was doing the video with lindsey here a little b just flew into the frame hovered around their frame, made a little cameo a little b kenya. So right now, just something really interesting for my social media is I use and I don't know if you can see it. I'm going to post another pick of it. I use a little vintage court eight millimeter I will post the link on the creative life page, it just takes amazing little videos. My focus right now is to do like a little clip of a scene to imagine that I'm shooting a beautiful client in the pac I want you guys to see her, but I want something a little bit different I open my eight millimeter f I'm going to turn it on to silent because I don't want to hear talking or cars or anything like that and basically I'm just going to find this little son flee here I'm going to get my client here I'm just going to take a little fifteen second clip of here so what I want you to do is put your feet apart put your thumbs in two days so you just in a relaxed position she's got a nice little flare and that is going to grab my iphone okay, I have chosen the you can chose all the different looks that you want and the one I've chosen is film the wire and I'm looking at your camera yeah, you look straight into the lens I'm just going to find my light fleer and I'm just going to do a little we short clips so as soon as I'm filming its not that stabia stay looking at, I'm not going to record anything yet until they just find my light and then I'm just going to use this clear yeah it's not recording my voice isa today and just a little tiny beautiful smile gorgeous, even just eighteen seconds is enough and let's do a gorgeous life that was going on and that said, I'm I met fifteen seconds. I'm going to take my little vintage clip uploaded onto my instant bid, so my favorite social media tips are really just be a little bit interesting. I've seen posting pictures on instagram from this film, so what I do is I go teo the actual riel I opened it up, I'm going to upload the video on insta bed on instagram was a fifteen second clip, but I'm also going to extract by screen shutting my iphone. I really go just still of jasmine, and I'm going to post that as well. Often I'll do these little clips I'll post a couple of others from riel shoots that I've done in the last month where I've used them and you probably didn't even know if you were watching maine's two graham going well, that's a cool feel terror or how did she do that? I did it with my eight millimeter just remember people love to see moving footage keep it short, keep it fun, keep it gorgeous and she is something interesting with it and even if it's out in about shooting today, you just always bringing attention back to what you do is a photographer, it just makes it fun and exciting and interesting. That's awesome. Thank you so much again eight millimeter is the app yeah can't wait to see that little video thank you guys we're going to move on to matt kostovski thanks again great tips that is over here all set up for us we're going to see what's going on and can't run all right matt, what have you got going on? All right, so this is it's kind of a social media tip I'm gonna assume there's a lot of people watching the have clients and everything like that you want to reach out to them but I think there's also a lot of people watching that just want to share their adventures with friends and family and if you do have clients I still think this is a cool idea to share something so thie idea behind his let me tell you what I'm doing first and then I'll tell you the set up for what I'm doing is whenever I go on a shoot now what? I take my iphone and I set it up I take like a little many like a little tripod doesn't have anything expensive I set it up and your phone has a time lapse after built into it a lot of people don't know that but it's actually built right into the phone and if it if your phone doesn't then there's maps you can download that have time lapse built in so what I do is I set up a time lapse and I let it run I said that I set the phone back and I let it run while I'm shooting my sunrise or so whatever I'm shooting and you see people walk through you see me walk through but most importantly you see the light changes see everything it looks really really cool it's a fun little video to share your phone takes care of it all for you so rather than by a whole another dslr to set up for a time lapse just let your phone do it because that's where most people are going to look at this stuff anyway he's allowed behind the scenes yeah and I think it just call it like I said whether it's clients or whether it's just friends and family I think we want something to share from our shooting I think it's anything to do a cz faras what I use this for a setup so I'll give you the cheap way the cheap way is our khan a r k o in it's this little many tripod basically if you don't have another tripod you could just wrap it around your tripod and clamp your phone to it and just let it do its thing so that is the that's the cheap way to do it the more expensive way with about ninety bucks which can and I we we were looking at this yesterday for a sweet it's this thing it's from call it sin amount cinema mt um and it's this kind of contraption that you put your phone into its ninety bucks it's beef here, it's great! If you want to walk around and hold it and take better video and it also comes with a lens. It's got a super wide angle lens on it. It's got graduated neutral density filters. It's got a lot of things, so it could just be a holder for your phone to attach to try pot or it's also got some other cool stuff on it, but either way, send it up record a little time lapse of your your photo shoots and it's a fun thing to share. Awesome so we don't have your camera here to actually set up because we're on the bus tour. Yes, but let's reenact. Okay rina run through you would sell your stuff up. I said myself if I go off when I chew in it it's also one of the types of photos that, like he said that you get the most engagement with with your audience. The audience loves those there's a little time, I suppose you know the other thing is this is crazy. I will post a photo taken from my phone of my tripod with my camera and I'll stand back and I'll take a shot which is another fun thing the post I'll stand back and take a shot and I'll get way more engagement over that then I will the actual riel photo from the photo shoot it's crazy but it always happens people love behind the scenes all right, everyone, it is time for victor ha victor get a head on over to you. Thank you, matt you want so much? Alright, victor, what have you got going on for us? We're making media for social media and you're so maker. Yes, so a lot of things that I've learned about social media is I pay attention to people massive fallings and I pay attention people who wish with little followings and I think what what the major theme I get is there really true to there's that that type of social media right? So if if I'm gonna do social media, I'm gonna try to give you guys a glimpse of who I am on a day to day basis and you guys are on my instagram then you know that right now I'm all about my puppies, right? What's your instagram it's hot talking for h a t o g r a p h e r all right? Well anyway, so you'll notice my life right now is all my public got it right, so and then today this past week I've been on a bus tour, so I try to give people an insight into my life because it's more personal that way there are photographers who make their entire instagram feeds about the work they do and they generate massive fallings because of that so I think like, pick the social me that you want to do be very specific with your social media and honestly start with one don't try to own all of them try to stop with one and learn how that one works and then move on to the next one you know? So what I did today was I just got the bus and I can I did a bts really of everyone setting up and doing their own thing, so if you go to my instagram account right now, you'll see the quick little video put together and just one thing about instagram that people tend to forget is you don't have to just record one long entire clip you could actually hold the record down button down just for a couple seconds and then record consecutive clips that will kind of make the video a little bit more interesting, you know? So so like this right now absolutely I knew you were going to do this so I started one yeah, we go I just got part of my little clip of in instagram I'll post that later but keep going well anyway so you know and because social media is ever changing like we just saw singing about periscope we talked about instagram a lot we talk about facebook a lot you know, one of the up and coming types of social media that younger people tend to be using so your age range between like thirty on thirty and under is something called snapchat you know? And so I just kind of started getting a snapshot and it's actually evolved quite a bit and there's something called stories that are involved and if you guys really start to kind of like instagram and you really want to get more personal with your client do you want to get personal with just people who follow you snapchats a really wonderful way of doing that because it's a little bit off the hip it's not nearly as curator and it's a lot more I think more spur of the moment stuff you know, I was hanging out with a bunch of people like a month or two ago and all of them were in snapshots just hearing them talk about snapshot and hearing him interact with snapshot in a way that I just I didn't understand I don't understand so tell me so I'm in that not in the under thirty crowd, so I think what snapchat does is it gives some gives a user or really quick quick disposable moment that allows you to kind of like share with your friends that's a lot of times silly but it's a lot of time really personal and funny and comical but also you could integrate it into your story and have like a twenty four hour snapshot that people can view for an entire day so sometimes it's a little pressing you know so between periscope and snapchat and instagram and facebook there's a lot of different ones you know he added twitter you just kind of get into social media overlooked so I think that really focused on one learn how to use that one and then maybe add a couple more that help expand what one temper social media doesn't do for you that's awesome all right while everyone that was our many stop thank you so much victor thank you soon jasmine and matt we are going to head back on the bus because we're on our way to portland we can't wait to meet everybody that is going to join us they're going to be there from one p m to two p m so check that out on creative lives facebook page there's an event we're going to be giving way big prizes somebody's gonna win photo we two thousand fifteen somebody is going to win or everybody that comes is going to win one hundred fifty dollars in creative live education so come join us everyone else keep watching us on credit live dot com.
