If you really want to push your photography or even just take photos for your albums in a more interesting way, why not take up a photo project this summer? Agape Albums have thought of 5 different new photo projects for you to get started.
A colour theme
Have you ever followed an instagram page just because it has a beautiful theme? The reason themes look great on instagram is because the images look cohesive when they’re all brought together. Consider picking a colour theme and looking out for great photo opportunities with your chosen colours. Photos with a colour theme look brilliant in albums and collages.
Summer evenings are amazing for photographs. Try a Golden Hour project where you take lots of photos just before sunset, when the light is golden and hazy.
Step up your travel photography game and learn how to take better photos of your summer holiday, whether you’re going to Spain or Skegness. Look out for the small details as well as scenery and take care of your composition. Include lots of colour, anything that’s local to the place you’re travelling and if you’re photographing landmarks, try a different approach or angle than the typical tourist snap.
A bugs life
All sorts of wonderful creatures come out to play in the summer months, so get your macro setting on and take lots of photos up close of all the beautiful butterflies and even the creepy crawlies.
Portraits with meaning
A really great photo project, not just for summer but all year round, is to take portraits with more meaning behind them. Instead of just taking snapshots of people, come up with a story and create a photo that speaks that story.
