Often it is interesting and helpful in reviewing your business working and benefits. Here I present simple things to grow your photography business-
Workflow
Make sure you are done with all the projects and try to maintain consistency in your work flow and regular programs.
Reminders
Send appointment reminders. Phone calls, e-mails and texts all can increase appointment success rates. This is especially true for retail customers. Even business-to-business clients appreciate follow-up and a friendly reminder.
Follow Up
Make sure to reach up to satisfaction and thus assure everything went well.
Be Prepared
Be prepared for your assignments and ready to work for days and nights to get your work done on time.
Learn to Say No
If you are not perfect in the required skills then never accept it and never squeeze jobs into your busy schedule that you don’t have time to do well.
Refer
Refer jobs you cannot take on to other photographers who would do the same for you. Offer to trade commission (25 percent is standard) for referrals.
Rate List
Keep an easy-to-access list of your rates so you never have to guess. Guessing off the top of your head often leads to under bidding. If the job is not on your list, say no.

How to shoot a good home video from camcorder

Creating good home videos takes practice and some important points to keep in mind before starting to shoot home videos. The following tips will help you in creating videos that you and your family can enjoy for long time.
1. Use zooms efficiently – Using too much zoom can make your video look bad or even can make it worse. If you need to zoom in and out, take it slow and steady, and don’t zoom out again too soon.
2. Framing shots – Fill the frame with your subject, and don’t be afraid to place him or her slightly off-center. For example, when filming kids at the pool, it tends to be more visually interesting to capture the children talking, laughing, or diving a bit to the left or right of center.
3. Shoot from different points – To make the video more effective and interesting, shoot it from different points. For example, when filming kids’ school game, use effective angles to shoot so that you can shoot the entire game with your kids being the center of attraction.
4. Plan your video according to editing – If you’re going to edit your footage, then you can shoot every second of the event. If not, then only shoot the important parts of the event else you will shoot the DJ testing the mike or of waiters going in and out of the kitchen which are not part of the event and make the video less enjoyable.

5. Use Tripod – Shaky handheld shots are one of the biggest culprits when it comes to bad home movies. Although many camcorders come with various image stabilization technologies, these in-camera features can only do so much to correct handshake. Shooting from a flat surface or, better still, a tripod, is a good way to remedy this problem.

6. Keep enough memory cards, tapes, or discs on hand – Running out of recording space in the middle of filming is no fun, so you’ll want to make sure you have more media available. Be sure to pick up extra discs, tapes or memory cards, even if your camcorder also comes with built-in memory.

7. Keep a spare battery – Backup battery power is just as important as keeping extra tapes or discs on hand. Some spare batteries offer longer recording times than the battery that came in the manufacturer’s box.
