Photo project ideas when you get stuck…

Creative Photography ideas

Some days are harder to get inspiration. Some days you need help to get you snapping away.If you get stuck on what to photograph, give these a go and you will be surprised on how much time one can spend on one topic.

  • Rainy days
  • Hands
  • My lunch
  • My desk
  • My family
  • Things I love
  • All things pink
  • Toys
  • Flowers

Pretty much anything you can think of.  The most important part is that you enjoy what you are taking pictures of and if you stick to one theme it normally gets the creative juices going. Take picture often and do not pack your camera away. It needs to be close by to capture the smile or the acquired moment. Challenge yourself to take one picture each day, or one every week. Keep them in a file and after one year you would have captured a great story. Make moments count by capturing them forever.

After all, every moment is a memory.

Taking pictures of children

Tips for taking pictures of your children

Any one that has children and animals in the same photo would know that it’s not an easy task to get them all to look at you, smile and look natural, while mom is pulling the dog off dad’s shirt and dad is clamping the boys between his legs, in an attempt to keep them still for the picture.

So my solution to this is – let them be. Let them be who they are. There aren’t many children I’ve met before that are great with sitting dead still for long periods of time. So I let them run around, play with their toys and even get dirty. I like to get the natural shots when they are tackling each other and dad is just shaking his head. Or that shot when you are not realising I am taking a photo. Those are the great shots.

Tips to take natural photos of your children:

  • Get down on their level
  • Use an environment that is child-friendly
  • Use a fast shutter speed for the active children
  • Take photos when they are rested and not hungry
  • Incorporate their toys that will keep them occupied and happy
  • Relax and have fun while taking photos

Enjoy the time spent with your children – Every moment is a memory!
