About this Event
Having great photos for social is a common pain point among most brands, especially small businesses with small budgets… but it doesn’t have to be! In this panel discussion, we’ll discuss how to take and utilize photos better + more efficiently — as well as when it’s time to bring in a pro to help. Additionally, we’ll take a deep dive into the legal side of photo-sharing on social media + what you need to look out for, so you’re always covered.
We know not every picture (or panel) is going to be perfect…but we want to help you get closer to it!
• How to use your phone to take quality photos for social
• When to hire a photographer + what you need to know
• Understanding the legal aspects of posting photos on your brand’s social channels

Madison Public Library Foundation builds better libraries every day by supporting the city’s public library facilities, collections and programs while fostering community engagement. It raises millions of dollars each year beyond municipal funds that allow library staff to deliver enriching experiences and vital resources to the community, including funding for free, year-round Wisconsin Book Festival author events. Gifts to the foundation — along with proceeds from its two annual fundraisers, Ex Libris and Lunch for Libraries — help the library achieve a new level of excellence. The foundation emphasizes equity and access, funding many projects that reach and benefit people of color and underrepresented populations.
Ex Libris 2020: Box Set Edition: The foundation is in its 10th year of presenting this fall fundraiser, which was converted to a “box set” theme. The boxes filled with local beverages and other small surprises sold out quickly, but this virtual fundraiser also includes an extensive silent auction of items and experiences donated by local businesses! Access the auction beginning November 2 at mplfoundation.org.
Wisconsin Book Festival: The festival has gone virtual! All author programs are free and live streamed via Crowdcast. There are about a dozen events left this year, and more to come in the spring. All are recorded and available to conveniently watch anytime if you miss the live stream.
LOCATION: Virtual – Facebook Live
