5 photography project Ideas
Often when you are first learning photography it’s hard to actually know what to take images of. People often talk of wanting to take more ‘arty’; shots or abstract images. So here are a few ideas to get your creative juices flowing and get you clicking on a more regular basis.
1 365 Project
Nice and simple but consistency is the key. The idea here is that you take a shot every day and over the year you can build a real snapshot of your life. Or just have created a gorgeous collection of images that you love. It’s great for building and stretching your photography eye and helps get you to be thinking like a photographer…where you see images everywhere!
Picking a colour as a theme makes you really creative and it often makes you suddenly aware of objects, nature and effects of light more than ever before. Simply pick a colour and let your eyes roam through your day spotting new things. When you pull all the images together, you can create an impactful collection. Why not pick a colour you love in your home and create a piece of wall art to show your creation off…interior designers dream!
3 Look up
I use this one on our photo-walks, because it is always eye opening. we go about our daily lives never really looking up. There is so much to see. Statues on buildings, leaves on trees with beautiful light streaming through, shape, patterns and colours we just miss whilst going about our business. Try it you’ll be amazed.
4 Attitude of Gratitude Project for 30 days
I love this one, you must photograph and post an image that shows or represents something you are grateful for in your life. It could be a friend, your soft warm bed, wonderful food, your favourite coffee cup. Inspiring us to have an attitude of gratitude. Such a gorgeous collection to have.You can look back on your month and feel wonderful!
5 100 faces
This is one I have not done yet – but I love the idea of it and plan to do it soon. You can do this every day or just until you have completed 100 portraits, they must all be different people. I love the idea of doing this with strangers but I think it would work wonderfully to show just how many wonderful people we have in our lives too and the number of people we come across in a week, month of year!
Happy snapping x
