Just like anything else, if you don't practice your photography regularly, things can get rusty, so avoid the atrophy with these fun summer projects: Some foods are very stereotypical of summers, including hot dogs, bratwurst, watermelons, and salads (chicken salad, macaroni salad, potato salad, etc.) Heck, even beer at a baseball game can make for some photo ops!Try to come up with excuses to make the foods and then let your creativity whirl when capturing the images!
I've just given you three ideas for summer photo projects.
But, of course, that's not a corner on the market of creative fun summer photo project ideas.
That said, you likely know where I'm going from here! Share your own experiences and thoughts in the comments!
Over the years I have put together a number of posts featuring fireworks imagery.
But, I have never given a tutorial or how-to on best practices for shooting fireworks.
So,in light of the upcoming holiday, figured now would be as good a time as any to share some pointers on how to photograph fireworks.A summer photo project is a great way to keep the creative juices flowing and to keep your skills active.Pick a theme and look for ways to capture images of your own.Obviously some will be more time sensitive (are you ready for July 4th fireworks? Yes, they are the intrepid photos we see all the time from all the world over, but every one is different, and every photo can tell a unique story, so stay out late one night or get up early one morning and find out where these classic shots can best be had in your area.The nice thing about doing this during summer is that you don't have to get up as early, and for the latter, you can usually wait until after dinner for your photo excursions - long days of summer give us extended times to approach the classic shots!In conclusion, having a project or theme to drive your creative vision is just one trick in the photographic tool bag.
