Photography for Cleveland and Northeast Ohio by photographer Tom Szabo

Find out what your photographer really knows!

Photography is as much a science as an art.  A lot of people looking to hire a photographer may judge the photographer’s value on such criteria as:

The camera looks expensive!

My friend/relative always takes pictures!

I can get a great photographer for less than the “pros”!

Remember I  said photography is as much science as art?  I found this neat posting about photographic terms.  Read it over:  http://digital-photography.suite101.com/article.cfm/digital_slr_photography_basics

Then ask your prospective photographer to answer some questions you’ve gotten from the article.  The content of the article covers just the basics.  If they stutter and stammer trying to answer questions about the basics don’t waste your money- hire a “pro”!
