Try Out a Different Genre
Try a whole new genre of photography if you’re seeking for some excitement; it’s one of the simplest things you can do. Try taking portraits if you often shot landscapes. Find great architectural settings to photograph if you are a wedding photographer. Or try your hand at one of the more challenging subgenres of photography, such astrophotography, microscopy, underwater photography, etc. We offer a comprehensive selection of significant photography genres that may inspire you.
Start a Photo-Per-Day Project
A weekly or daily picture project is frequently one of the first ideas that comes to mind when individuals begin to come up with photography ideas. These kinds of initiatives are frequently discussed online, and for good reason—they keep photography on your mind all year long.
Photo-per-day (365 Projects) and photo-per-week (52 Projects) challenges occasionally have a specific subject. Shadows may be the topic of the first week, followed by red and blue, texture, and so on. Other times, it’s more about setting a personal objective, like committing to really taking at least one decent shot each day of the year.
Rent a Different Lens
Sometimes a photographer’s interest in impromptu photoshoots and exploration is just piqued by a small amount of new gear.
It is not necessary to have a very powerful (or costly) lens like a 400mm f/2.8 supertelephoto. Even renting an 85mm f/1.8 prime or a macro lens is sufficient to release a lot of the energy and inventiveness that had been kept under wraps. Better still, if you can borrow anything from a buddy or trade equipment with them for a few days. Although I usually photograph with Nikon cameras, I have occasionally borrowed Canon models to test them out. This has always been a good reason for me to take more pictures and go out shooting more frequently.
Use a New Post-Processing Style
Not only is experimentation an aspect of field photography. It holds true for post-processing work just as much, if not more, given the astounding array of post-processing lessons accessible to experiment with drastically various styles of photography.
Try out some post-processing methods for double exposure. Make your shots more conceptual by combining many photos into a single image. Alternately, add text to an image to make it appear like a magazine spread or poster. To create something intriguing and original, you don’t need to be a Photoshop whiz, but you will undoubtedly get better at editing as you go.
Experiment with “Wrong” Settings
Nobody should take macro photographs at f/2.8 with zero depth of focus or handheld pictures with a 5 second shutter speed. not when you ought to.
In actuality, a lot of supposedly incorrect camera settings just don’t produce average photographs. That’s OK if your aim is to capture your topic in a picture that is razor-sharp and conventional. However, there are instances when trying out strange camera settings will provide the best results.
Therefore, the next time you’re seeking for new photographic inspiration, consider photographing the same things in drastically different circumstances (including different lenses and post-processing styles). Use a zoom lens and lengthy shutter speeds to take a series of street photos.
