What is Tethered Photography?Tethered photography is a common term used to describe when a photographer connects (or “tethers”) their camera to their computer or tablet, typically through either a USB wire, FireWire, or wirelessly. During a tethered photo shoot, when a picture is taken, the photo bypasses the camera, is saved directly to the computer’s hard-drive, and displayed instantly on the monitor or laptop screen. This process gives both the photographer and the model/client instant feedback on the photographs being taken.
