5 interesting things to photograph March 26, 2008

If you’re at all like me, you take your camera everywhere. But sometimes when I want to start a new project, I have no ideas. Recently, I was addicted to snapping pictures of all my meals. Then for a while it was teapots, and now it seems to be self portraits. Any photographer will tell you that some days are better for picture taking than others. But unfortunatly, even the best photographer will have an off day when they can’t think of anything to snap. With this list you won’t have to worry about finding an interesting topic on even your worst photo days.

  1. Food Even the most artistic photographer has to eat sometimes. Alot of times you have to act quickly when photographing food because in a matter of minutes your beautiful fresh entree could start to look like a big mess. (Note: It really helps to turn on Macro mode for food pictures.)
  2. Fireworks During the summer months, you are sure to see some fireworks sooner or later. However, it can be difficult. Remember to bring a tripod, extra memory cards, and a good location. Even though the thought of photographing a subject that constantly moves and disappears in daunting, it can also be well worth it when you see your beautiful pictures.
  3. Children Little kids can be the perfect subjects. If you have children or younger siblings, take them out to the park on a sunny day. Let them run around there for a while. Trust me, children at their happiest is one of the best things to witness. And being able to captue that moment forever is priceless.
  4. Pets Think about your pets. Do you love them? Do you wish you could let others understand how you feel about them? Spend the day photographing them doing what animals do. Running in a forest, making a mess, or just being cute. Whatever they do, make sure you have your camera ready.
  5. Your Breakfast Believe it or not, your breakfast can say alot about you. There are flickr groups that are all about breakfast pictures. Plus, this one is really easy. All you have to do is snap a picture before you start to eat every morning. It’s pretty easy and will work for lunch or dinner also. (Go ahead, go wild and snap all your meals)

Basically, you can photograph anything you want. When you’re feeling low on creative power, just look around you. Almost anything you see will make for an intresting picture. Just remember to be creative, use good lighting, and always have your camera with you.

    Regarding photographing fireworks: My closest friend spent this past 4th of July away from home, deployed to Iraq. I didn’t want him to miss the beautiful fireworks display. So, even though I was completely new to photography, I grabbed my camera, batteries, and all the memory cards I could find that fit my camera. By the next morning, he got to his computer in Iraq, and the 4th of July was waiting for him in almost three dozen emails. It IS a hard subject to capture, but it’s worth it. I came up with some amazing shots.
    I hope this serves as encouragement to anyone out there that’s a little unsure about whether they’ll get the right pictures or not.

    Wow, that’s amazing and such a great idea. I’m sure that he was very happy to know that everyone back home cares and is missing him
