For most people, photoshoots are a way of recording the most eventful moments in their lives - both personally and professionally. At FORDPIC, we capture these moments for you to keep and cherish for a lifetime. 

We provide shoots, edits, prints, and even displays to allow you and your professional endeavors to flourish. We specialize in family photography, pictures for exhibitions, home decor, school displays, and wall mountings.

To help you gain the most out of your photo session, we have compiled a list of the most common mistakes people make in a photoshoot.

1. Not choosing outfits ahead of time
If you have decided to get a photoshoot done, you must have a theme or a vision in mind. Speak to your photographer about the kind of setting and color theme that will be appropriate for your shoot.

Accordingly, finalize your attire to balance out the final look of the photos, or else your pictures can turn out to be too dark or too light.

2. Undermining the role of a photographer
Please trust your photographer if you have hired one to take your pictures. Allow them some time to visualize and execute the photoshoot according to their proficiency before judging their capabilities. Also, you need to show patience with their process, just as they might require you to be a little cooperative throughout the tedious and long process.

Trust us, this job can get really taxing even for us, but we find it worth it every time we manage to bring a smile to your face.

3. Expecting high-quality work at low prices
The best things, as they say, in life are free. But free, only for your eyes to see!

But if you desire to capture and preserve those moments realistically, you need to pay the price for it. Photographers devote their crucial time mastering the techniques, bearing the additional cost of acquiring highly-functional cameras, paying for those editing tools, and always being on the go - all to ensure that their clients are satisfied. The least they can expect for all their hard work is to be paid sufficiently for their profession.

4. Assuming that the photographer would figure out everything
Always let the photographers know how you expect them to execute the photoshoot. We cannot see through you or understand what you expect from us. At times, important people are often missed out in social gatherings. To avoid this kind of happening, you should discuss the guest list with the photographer (especially the special ones) well before the actual day!
