Photo Quality

I used a photo taken with my iPhone on the cover of one of my ebooks. It is enough to clearly convey the purpose and meaning of the book.

I like taking photos with my iPhone 6. The results are almost always acceptable. Some of the newer phones are even better, but the iPhone 6 and that generation of devices have hit a point were I feel the results are well within reason for promotion of products and services in small business.

If there is a bigger budget for photography it might be better applied to the distribution efforts for the message that is being conveyed. That budget is almost always an issue.

Certainly there are exceptions to this thought. I just can’t conceive of the situation though, for a small business on a small budget, where that would apply. Perhaps if the business owner is a photo buff. Someone that has the equipment and the inclination for a more perfect outcome artistically. Remember though that higher density digital photos require more to store and more time to load on line. So tradeoffs are required for real professional grade photos. Expertise is another matter. A good photographer can made any shot better by considering lighting and the set up for the shot.

What we’re trying to achieve is familiarity and positive empathy toward the business. Decent photos that tell the story are among the tools needed – they aren’t the goal.

I am a writer with an interest in conveying meaning for customers through the development of storytelling about the business. This can be told with narrative, with photos, and with videos. Those are my interests. My history is in commercial construction. There I sold, managed, and developed business opportunities for large projects like airports, hospitals, museums, hotels, and the like. My wife and I travel. We have traveled through Europe many times, but we are closer to home now. We are using our camping trailer and our pickup truck to visit and enjoy the southeast at the moment. We shoot north or to the mountains in the really hot summer months, but we like the coastline too. We’re having a great time.
