A List Apart
"I'm never disappointed by Photojojo." -- Dave Johnson
As photographers, we plan and plan for big shoots.
But, we all have those days. The ones where that black cat that crossed our path, or we accidentally walked under a ladder.
Despite our best efforts, things can go wrong from time to time.
We’ll show you how to ward off those photoshoot nightmares. Our tips will prevent scary photo scenarios like garlic chases vampires away!

No Memory Cards, No Problem
I booked a photoshoot, and when I got there, I realized I had forgotten ALL of my memory cards! I apologized to the client and rescheduled, but I felt like such a dummy. How do I prevent this in the future?
This happens to the best of us. Here are some simple ways to keep track of your memory!
Grain, Grain, Go Away!:
I got home from a shoot only to realize I shot everything at 6400 ISO. The grain and noise is insane! What do I do?
Dear Grim and Grainy,
Keep your chin up!
White Balance Woes:
All of my photos have a strange color cast. My indoor photos look orange, and outdoor ones look blue.
I’m guessing I have the wrong white balance settings? What is white balance anyway?
Is there anything I can do?
White Balance can be tricky, even for the most experienced photogs.
Eyes Wide Shut:
I photograph weddings. It never fails that during group photos, someone will blink or make a face.
Are there any tricks for getting people to keep their eyes open?
Dear Eyes Closed,
It’s definitely hard to get everyone to look perfect at the same moment.
I recently did a photoshoot for a friend, and now she’s calling me everyday to check on her photos. I want to stay friends with her, but her constant calls are driving me crazy!
How do I tell her that editing takes time?
You are not alone in this situation. Try to stay positive, and remember she is just anxious to see your amazing work.
With the Holidays coming up, I’ve started booking more sessions with kids and families.
How do I deal with children that won’t quit crying?
Dry those eyes,
