When photographing, take more pics then you think you need. And don't use a flash most of the time. I just use a point n shoot, but a better camera where you can control your F stop will yield a better pic for sure.

Thanks for the heads up. Honestly, the few events I've done I've been running like a maniac to the last minute. Probably has to do with my OCD tendencies and overthinking everything. Pictures have always been an afterthought and then I feel weird taking pictures with the show going on.

One of the reasons I'm having a box on wheels made to help streamline everything. Once I get it I'll take some pictures of it. I want to get to the point that it's pretty plug and go.

Neil I might take you up on your offer for one of your pics for my brochure. I will PM if you if that's okay.

Thanks,
Armando

Thats fine.

I always have taken extra time and money to streamline a setup and make setup/teardown faster and easier on me. We don't make any $$ except for performance time, so all the extra effort helps .

I am hoping that dedicating a few guys to just screens and not the bouncers as well will help. Usually running all over the place and I ended up doing the whole event a few times. I'm sure the learning curve will come down eventually.
