“Shooting tethered is a reassurance that there will be no surprises when you get home.” – Paul Lindquist, professional photographer based out of Stockholm
There is a certain aura of professionalism that comes with shooting tethered. You’re respecting your client’s time, you’re producing a higher quality of images, and the end result is a satisfied customer.
If you’re shooting commercial, you know that a happy client is a long-term client. Everything you do is for the convenience of the client, and shooting tethered allows your client to be an active part of the shoot. Your client can be on set, check the shots as you go, but won’t be in the way – instead at a computer or tablet. You can even utilize a tethered workflow that allows your clients to view your shots on the web from anywhere in the world using Lightroom.
You know the old adage “time is money” – well that rings true for you and your clients. Shooting tethered can help fine-tune image quality and simplify the selection process. Your client can be on set, checking shots as you go, and you’ll all know the shot is perfect in a fraction of the time that it might take otherwise.
Higher Quality of Images
Tethered photography allows the photographer, assistants, and clients to see images in real-time on a monitor much larger than the camera screen. This has several advantages when checking the color accuracy, contrast and focus of your shots. Software programs such as Capture One or Lightroom also allow you to adjust your camera’s settings or fire your camera remotely from your laptop workstation, saving your valuable and allowing for adjustments on the fly.
