5 Intriguing In Camera Creative Photography Ideas With Detailed Photos
Creative Photography Simplified
What is creative photography? It is anything you shoot that is unusual or special. It is any photo you modify to make it unusual or special. Whether it has been done before or not is not relevant. Whether you copy someone else’s idea or not, is not relevant.
In camera creativity could be:
A Perspective Photo
Shoot up or down. Perhaps a stairway leading into an interesting room. Shoot through a “tunnel”, like the photograph below, or maybe turn the camera so the horizon line is not level.
An interesting reflection
Even though the idea of photographing into a mirror, or even multiple mirrors has been done thousands of times, there is no real end to the possible effects you can generate.
Everyone, including me, was looking at yet another gorgeous sunset from our riverboat on the Moscow Canal (quite large). I turned around, with my back to the sunset and saw this photo What you are seeing is the people inside the bar (very faint) as well as the people sitting on the deck watching the sunset.
Shooting Through A Filter
I am not, necessarily, referring to a camera lens filter, Your filter could be frosted glass, a piece of mesh fabric or the lens of your eyeless, You get the idea. Yes, much of this can be done post processing as well. Just saving a step, if you wish to.
All I did was put a piece of glass with water droplets in front of the beer. I did add some light leaks post processing, but that would not be necessary.
Some of my older favorites included one person walking alongside themself, which was originally done before computers with a film camera.
You can also move the camera or the lens while you shoot.
Look at whatever in camera processing you can do after you shoot, to change the effect.
It’s really all about paying attention to your surroundings. Most of these photos were not sought out. I happened to look in the correct direction at the right time or a thought came to me from out of the blue. For sure I was thinking about taking photographs, but not necessarily with any particular goal.
