At home is where you feel most comfortable, so you'll probably be tempted to just laze around and catch up on your favorite series. How about taking photos at home? Through the lens, we hope you'll find a new appreciation for things you often overlook and see your loved ones from a different perspective. Just don't forget to load your camera with a high ISO film and a reflector (a piece of white paper will do). Take advantage of ambient lighting for a cozier feel!
Use Your Mirror
Taking straightforward self-portraits with your favorite camera is classic, but use mirrors creatively, too. Use it to bounce off light, to frame your subject, or for documenting a good hair day!
Find Beauty In Everyday Things
Capture the things unique to your home — a childhood toy, a special space where you spend time with your loved ones, a favorite shirt. More than just physical objects, they are reminders of a particular time of your life or a sweet remembrance of home.
Document Daily Activities
Spend quality time with your loved ones and take lovely photos while you're at it — casual, candid, and intimate.
Let's be honest: pet photos are probably taking up space in your camera roll. They have endearing characteristics and are super cute, so it's just natural for us to keep snapping photos. Give your mobile phone a break and capture your pets on film for more charming photos!
Perfect Your Portraits
Shooting portraits can be quite tricky — you need to master lighting techniques and find your subject's right angle. Practice taking portraits of your loved ones at home where they can be comfortable, compared to a stiff and intimidating studio setting. And without the standard studio lights, you'll be able to challenge yourself to shoot flattering photos in limited lighting.
Sunlight and Shadows
Catch the sunlight in the morning or afternoon. Seek the perfect light in your home and capture how the sun hits the scene to cast shadows on your subject.
