TRIBE Member
hey...I am trying to find some information on what would be the difference between doing a photo shoot for print vs doing a photo shoot the web. Any lighting, layout...nuances of set design.
Is there anything?

you need a good modem for the ones on the web, and a good dark room for the prints

This belongs in the Photography thread.

There's no difference other then file size. Shoot at the maximum resolution all the time anyway, and then downscale to 72 dpi for web.

If you KNEW your photos would NEVER EVER EEEEVER be printed, then you could set your pics to a smaller size in camera... but that would just be ludicrous.

EVERY photo deserves the option to be printed... Drives me nuts when I see people shooting on small size on their camera... But I'm a fucking lunatic... so don't take my word as gospel.

If you have a DSLR then shoot RAW format, and edit in Photoshop or Lightroom.

Go read the "Photography" thread. Scores of good tidbits of info in there that are worth all the reading. Go soak it all up.


Have fun!
Happy Shooting.

are you the photographer or the client? what is being shot?

like PJ mentioned, there is no difference. you may not tinker around with things as much if you know that something is going to be 600x800 pixels at 72 dpi. if you are shooting product and it will be close cut, there are different things you can do to make it easier for the person doing the post. besides that, i dont really do anything differently if i am shooting for web instead of print.
