Over 100 ideas for photography
Pupils who acquire a high School photo ID card such as A Level Photography or NCEA Level 3 Photography often look on the web for hints, suggestions and suggestions. More than 100 different creativity methods and combined multimedia methods that visual arts/photography majors want to use in their work are included in this work.
Our approach is based on technologies of combined medium photography, technique / animation photography and interesting, funny or singular compositionstrategien. Please note: The photographic creativity presented in this review should not be randomly researched in a photo course, but should be specifically targeted, if appropriate, to your subject or subject. This approach may or may not be appropriate for your own photo project and should only be taken in combination with the guidance of your instructor.
Below you will find a list of technologies that can be used to create a series of different types of SLRs and DSLRs, such as a standard SLR /DSLR cam corder, a conventional SLR cam, a pinhole cam and/or a mobile photocell. Spot, smear and EDM photos with clear sparkling mineral waters like Matthew Brandt: You can print photos on a versatile screen and expand or deform them, as in these works by Michal Macku:
Incinerate pictures, as in these Lucas Simões examples: Make or knit pictures like in the embroidered vinyl photography of Maurizio Anzeri: Make pictures like Lisa Kokin: Wind cracked plastics or other material around the rim of your digital still to produce blurred borders, as in Jesse David McGrady's pictures (via PetaPixel):
You can use a hand-held vitreous lense or Prisma to produce blurry shapes like this photo by Sam Hurd: Consciously blurry highlights to produce bokah, like in this wonderful scenery by Takashi Kitajima: Take photographs of scenery through visual manual objectives, like in this A Level Photography work by Freya Dumasia: abstracting an entire picture through three mirror and making a vorograph like Alvin Langdon Coburn:
Take a photo and make an install, a still lifes or a statue, as in this example by Joseph Parra: Make 3-D photographic collaborations, as in these works by Midori Harima: Collage composite material onto pictures, as in Vasilisa Forbes' photography: Syringe, lubricate or mix on photos, as in this Jemma Kelly sketchbook:
Sometimes painting developers on photographic papers to illuminate only parts of the work, as in these Timothy Pakron portraits: Draw directly on photos, as in these works by Gerhard Richter: Digitalize color and photography, like Fabienne Rivory's LaBokoff project: Draw on items and then take pictures of them, as in this IGCSE photography work by Rachel Ecclestone:
Select or scrape negative or photograph as in this 100 year old vinyl Frank Eugene print: You can use a CNC or CNC engraver to engrave a photograph onto a piece of paper such as aluminum, a piece of furniture, a piece of furniture, or glass: Even though most samples of on-line photogravure appear to be non-inspiring commercials, photogravure opens up new opportunities for high schools photography pupils - not only in order to be able to print pictures on interesting media, but also as a way to create a structured sheet that can be subsequently produced from there.
A lot of businesses also provide an individual etching program that can be used by undergraduates. You can use an Ink Transmission process to apply photo pictures to other media, such as this Crystal Hethcote video: Watch this movie to see a basic picture transmission technology with gels that can be useful for bringing a digitized picture to any number of imaginative interfaces.
Apply sculpted features that stand out from photography, as in this example by Carmen Freudenthal & Elle Verhagen: Shoot with a palette of scanners, such as Evilsabeth Schmitz-Garcia: Place an object on a photo and shoot, as in this example by Rosanna Jones: Place items on stills and take new pictures of them, like these pictures of Arnaud Jarsaillon and Remy Poncet of Brest Brest:
Easily project and photograph pictures onto structured surface like in Pete Ashton's experiments: Projection of pictures onto humans or scenery, as in these samples from Lee Kirby: Creating a photograph, as in this example from Joanne Keen: Take your own hole pin photography and make your own from the ground up like Matt Bigwood (via The Phoblographer):
Please note: Some educators buy a Make-at-Home hole pin system kit for their pupils, such as this from Amazon US or Amazon UK (affiliate links). The Matt Bigwood homemade punchcams are made from standard aluminum beverage cans: Expose a photo excessively and create a "high-key" photograph like this one of Gabi Lukacs: Explore submarine photography like Elena Kalis:
Utilize a self-built lightbox to provide a clear setting for photography, as in this YouTube movie from Auctiva: Arts instructors and pupils often take pictures on overcrowded class-room tables, often with sub-optimal illumination. Lightbox photography can be particularly useful in this context to support those who want to take professionally designed photos of products (e.g. graphic designers studying to produce advertising material) or who want to take pictures of sculptures or designer objects, who want to make compound works out of several items or simply want a basic setting for their pictures.
Table photography becomes endlessly easy when you can illuminate a scene well and shoot colourfast and detailed in a dependable and consistent way. For other less time-consuming photo or scenery photography inspiration, you can buy cheap lightbox sets and lighting marquees from Amazon.com and Amazon UK (affiliate links).
Try out different types of cameras, such as the neutrality lens that Salim Al-Harthy used to capture this beauty: a unique combination of the two: Utilize special photo illumination to produce dramatically contrasting images, like in this two brother portrayal of dankos-unlmtd: Use a portable photo projector (i.e. Amazon.com or Amazom UK - Associate Links) to provide better illumination within your photos, like in this indoor portrayal of Toni Lynn: Take blurred pictures and take semi-abstract photos, like Bill Armstrong's:

Take pictures of things with extremely large lens macros, like Andrew Osokin's pictures of droplets of water: Take pictures of things without context information, so that almost unrecognizable things become as in this example by Peter Lik: Shoot pictures of unusual or unanticipated vantage points such as these bird's-eye views that have been mandated by the Society for Community Organization:

Organize your works as if they were a still lifes picture, like these still lifes designed by Maggie Ruggiero and taken by Martyn Thompson (left) and Marcus Nilsson (right): Produce open documentaries, like these emotional black-and-white fans by Christopher Klettermayer: Make a piece that narrates a tale or tale, like Dan Winters' photography with Brad Pitt:
Record the same scenery at different points in time, as in this Clarisse d'Arcimoles photo series: Take photographs of things immersed in colored liquids or dairy baths, like these photographs of Rosanna Jones: Using flip-flops to generate an illusion, as in this self-portrait of the 18-year-old Austrian artist Laura Williams: Make a complexe,'unrealistic' environment and take photographs of it, as in this Cerise Dupède composition:

Notice: If you are interested in lighting art, you can also take a look at this High School NCEA Photography project by Jessica Louise. At Jessica we use a number of evening photography methods, among them the use of a lasers to draw with lights. You can use a short exposure time to capture movement like in Justin Grant's shooting action:
Scroll the lens horizontal so that a motif that is in motion is in sharp focus yet the backdrop is blurry, as in Mr. Bones' pan shot (via My Modern Met): You can use long exposure times to produce blurry movements, like this nice Antti Viitala picture of water: Zooming in on long exposures, such as A Level Photography undergraduate Freya Dumasia: Try long exposures at dark, blurry light conditions, as in Jakob Wagner's abstracted Sightseeing Tunnel series:
