Photography Ideas




Sometimes we need a little help to try and find something different to do with our photography. To get creative with images and how to rethink the way we go about taking them.

Below are some of the ways we, as a club, have tried to put this theory into practice.


Deconstructed Landscapes


Try a new way of exploring a landscape by creating a collaged photo made up of several photos of one area or scene.

Disturbed Portraits


A disturbed or distorted portrait is an image where the photo of the person you are taking is somewhat obstructed, blurred or warped in some way.

Shoot Through a Screen


This exercise gets you thinking about what you can place between your camera lens and subject to  layer your photo without to aid of a photoshop program.

Cross Polarised Art Photography


Using light and plastic you can create images that are bright, vibrant and very colourful.

Zoom Burst


A zoom burst is created by zooming in or out while taking your photo. Effectively creating a blurred image where the scene is 'bursting' towards you.

Oil and Water Abstracts


As oil floats on water it can create a wonderful textured layer to reflect a colourful background at the bottom of a glass.

Reflected Scene


The idea is to create an image in which it appears the subject behind the window is looking out onto the scene which is reflected in the window glass.

Ultraviolet Photography


Ultraviolet photography is a photographic process of recording images by using light form the ultraviolet (UV) spectrum only. It is also pretty fun to see what objects glow under these conditions.
