photography projects (2)

this is a second part from my old post (photograph projects) which was very popular, and alot of people feeded back me with alot of thanks because they used the tips I gave, and they felt that they achieved something in the photography word…

 

anyways, I’m giving here some new projects any photographer (Pro or Unpro photographer)  can use, and get new ideas or get more benefit from it:

 

11. Stay at home: and create some stories by the objects you have, and then take a photo with a special angle that the story can tell itself by just looking at, even if you helped the picture with some words, as a title to a picture or a small description, but don’t take a picture of one subject, as (your mobile, wallet, sun glass) you have to make a story:

12.Create a pattern: which you can be creative, that you can look for places that a pattern can be created in a picture, even if alot of people shoot that picture before.

13.Know your town: and go to the closest historical, or popular landmark, and take 100 picture for it, then go to the next one, it doesn’t have to be a building, it can be a garden, a mall, or even a stadium or a gallery room. anyways, go to each place in your town and take at least 100 pictures for it, and believe me, you’ll take more and more pictures. and even you can start your stock of photos get raised more and more.

14.Visit the streets: and take your SLR camera with some lenses and hit the streets to take some dynamic, real life pictures of people, cars and city life, don’t focus on any topic, just take pictures for anything you see and you like, but try to be professional with the right mood of shooting and the right lens, but if you feel that you will not be able to figure it out fast, then put it on manual and fix the pictures  at home by any photo editing program.

15.Portrait photograpy: your family are the easiest portraits that any photographer can reach to take photos for, because they are available for you, and after you practice your portrait photography with your family, and feel that your pictures reached a high quality level, then you can start taking portraits for random people, and even take portrait photos for people in the streets to collect some faces photos for your collection of any project you are thinking about.

Wait for my Street Photography Tips and tricks, specially in countries that they are afraid from being photographed such as the Arabian Gulf Countries…..

Stock photos and online photo uses

this is an issue that I was hearing about these days, the thing which is called (stock photography) and stock photo websites….

 

first of all, one of the university people I know was building the university portal, and he needed some pictures to put in the portal, but he didn’t have a photographer, so many people might do a mistake and take the pictures from the internet and then post in online without taking any permission, even if the person mentioned the website, that is not right.

because

1: the website might bough that picture for a 1 time use, so it is owned by the website.

2: maybe the picture was been taken by a special photographer for the source that the picture was found, and that photographer don’t want anyone else to use the photo, even if the credit was given

 

so if you you want to put some pictures in your website, and you are not, or someone you know is a photographer who owns some pictures, THEN YOU HAVE TO BUY THE PICTURE ONLINE, and that will make you own the picture, and use it in a proper way.

search (stock photos) (photos bank) (buy online photos) on any search engine, and you’ll find a lot of such websites which provides you with a lot of pictures, with a variety of prices. (from 1.5$ to 10,000$) but most of them are cheap and has very great quality pictures.
