Identify, set up, capture and edit photos for social media - on your smartphone

How do I make my images look better on social media?

Are you a little disappointed in your photos that you and your team post?


Want to Up your social media game? The first place to start is improving the images.


If you find yourself envious of other social media photos - this workshop is for you.


It is very noisy on social media and creating impactful photos that engage is a crucial tool to connect with your customers.


In our mobile world, we have an incredibly short attention span as we scroll through our feeds on social media etc.  Photos are interpreted 60,000 times faster than text.  It takes only 13 milliseconds for your brain to interpret a photo!


The convenience of mobile phone cameras and the popularity of visual marketing have resulted in an unprecedented surge in the use of imagery in our daily lives. This is a great thing! More people are discovering photography and how they can use it in a positive way (both on a professional and personal level).


Everyone is now including a visual asset (image, video, infographic) on all their blogs, social media posts – placing even more pressure to consistently produce genuine and engaging visual assets.


Video is very on trend and for good reason. I am a huge advocate for video. However, the best videos require a lot more preparation, design and scripting than an image.


Do not post stock images. They can be easy to spot and are regularly circulated. Sharing happy snaps on your phone could be even worse. It is not fair, however, your business may be judged by your images.
