1. SUBJECT FOCUS

This one is kind of a typical one but there are soooo many different subjects you can choose to focus on. Here are some ideas...

  • Lines

  • Technology

  • Transportation

  • Family

  • Shoes

  • A colour

 

2. NAME PROJECT

You can do this one two ways. Either you find the actual letter, or you use things around you that naturally form the letter. Once done you can use this cute collage as your banner, front page etc.

 

3. DAY IN THE LIFE

Basically a VLOG, but just photos, so a PHLOG. You can do this with or without your face actually in it and I know we like to capture the super interesting days but try this on a day where you not really doing much, even if you’re at home all day.

 

4. Close-ups

So for this you pick indoors or outdoors and either get real close with your camera or stand somewhere and zoom in as far as your zoom takes you. The goal is to have images that you would have to really guess what it actually is.


5. 10 STRANGERS

Now this one can be quite scary because you have to go up to random people but being a photographer involves stepping out of your comfort zone to get amazing shots sometimes. This project is good because it pushes interaction as well as photos and you may begin to notice how different interactions/stories shape the direction of how you shoot.
