In this episode, I share a few fun photoshoot ideas that you can try today. Most of these ideas are practical and easy, but they might spark some new ideas or inspire you to take more photographs!
We talk about:
- Artistic ideas to try during your photoshoots
- How to collaborate with people online
- Why leaving your comfort zone can boost your productivity as a photographer
& much more!
I hope that this episode motivates you to try something new today. From collaborations with fellow photographers to abstract glass effects, this episode has everything you need to get started creatively this week.
Here is a preview of this episode.
Use In-Camera Filters
Fujifilm cameras already have these, and they can help you take outstanding photos without needing to edit your photos in any other program. If you don’t have a Fujifilm camera, you can just experiment with the standard filters that your camera already has.
Aside from black and white filters, cameras usually have a lot of interesting effects that you can play with to make your images pop or look more saturated.
Some of the filters might seem a bit extreme, but I think that they’re a great way to leave your comfort zone, discover new colour styles, and familiarise yourself with an unconventional way of taking photos.
Rent/Borrow a Camera
This is a little bit more challenging and might involve spending some money. However, if you have the chance to borrow a friend’s camera or rent another camera, don’t hesitate!
Chances are that you’re not used to the settings and buttons of another camera, so you’ll feel like a beginner again. This can be a refreshing feeling, especially if you’ve been using the same equipment for years. This might be the creative boost you need to discover inspiration!
Shoot Through Glass
Shooting through glass will create an interesting abstract effect. Hold the glass in front of your lens or partially cover the lens with it so that a part of the frame is still sharp and clear. By glass, I mean the glass you drink from, but you can also use eyeglasses.
This will work best if you shoot against a source of light.
