Stuck indoors and looking for photography ideas? You’re in just the right place! We have dedicated this article to dive into 10 fun ideas for indoor photography that are super easy and have results that are absolutely lovable.
So why delay any further? Let us first see a list of the content below :
First on our list is Bokeh photography. The idea involves using lights and manual focus. The Bokeh photography technique is a great way to do low-light photography easily at home. All you need is a spacious setting, fairy lights or Christmas lights, a long lens camera, and a photography subject.
You only need to put some distance between your subject and the lights, make sure your room is dimly lit just so your subject can be deciphered, and set your camera to manual focus before starting to snap pictures. The results will be pictures with cozy vibes which are also perfect for any party scene!
Reflection photography is another great technique that is super easy and all you need is a mirror, a subject, and some photo editing skills. This photography idea is phenomenal for product photoshoots in both indoor and professional settings.
All you need to do is to get your mirror and position the subject on top of the mirror or in front of it, depending on how you placed your mirror, and then click pictures and edit them to your liking.
This technique can also be done using water or any other reflective surfaces. The results you get from those creative shots are way too fun and artistic — the perfect aesthetic!
Macro photography has a whole other fan base. Once you get into it, you just can’t stop! Though you have to keep in mind that this technique requires sufficient lighting. But to do this, you’ll need a macro lens attached to your camera. Such a lens is made to support close-up focusing, sharp and highly detailed image capturing.
A standard macro lens is optimized to have a 1:1 zoom ratio and a 30cm or less focusing distance. But if you do not already have a macro lens and are short on budget, an obstacle for you to try out this awesome photography technique is that macro lenses are rather expensive.
A more DIY approach to the technique which is also cost-effective can be reverse mounting a minimum 25mm camera lens. Many recent smartphones also come with built-in macro lenses, but the quality of the photographs isn’t exactly the same.
The name of this technique says it all. You just have to click through a glass — literally! While it may sound boring, the results of this technique are beyond fabulous. All you need is a sheet of glass and a subject and some editing. Any glass window or door, glass table, car window, or windshield is perfectly usable for this idea.
All you have to do is fix the setting and lighting as you desire and position your subject on the other side of the glass. Use your camera to click the photographs and edit to your liking — that’s all.
This photography idea is yet another widely used technique on our list. You can see food photography all over the internet, not in just food blogs and cookbooks.
All you need is a monochromatic setting or a backdrop with complimenting colors or a setting with nude shades and of course a scrumptious-looking meal set as the main photography subject. Once everything is ready, go ahead and click away.
Finally, do some image editing to enhance the results and your photograph is advertisement-worthy!
The lace shadow technique is mostly used for living subjects. It is one of the popular photography ideas that have gone viral and is still very much in style. The technique is indoor-friendly as all you need is a sheer lace cloth, sufficient lighting, and a subject with props if you want.
To get the best results, capture the photos during the daytime when sunlight is abundant. You can make the subject hold the lace cloth or hang it in a way so that it casts shadows on your subject. Make sure no external light is interfering with the image to ensure good light and shadow balance on your picture. Lastly, edit and see the stunning results!
It seems like still life photography has been going around since the dawn of time. All you need is a good camera, a backdrop (optional), a setup with good lighting, and a subject. You can click anything and everything with this technique! The technique is great for indoor photography as many inanimate objects are within the reach of your hands.
There are two types of still life photography — still life and created still life. We won’t be delving into the details of those distinctions today, but we assure you that this photography idea is super easy and works just about anywhere.
Let’s all agree — there are two types of people, one who likes abstract things and the other who doesn’t. To get the best out of this technique, you have to appreciate the aesthetic nature of abstract things.
Your props can be soap films that diffract light to show you rainbow colors which when captured via photography can result in great wallpapers or images for web usage.
Another technique can be using incense to capture the abstract movement of smoke. The possibilities are endless.
The depth photography technique is great to capture movement and depth in your photograph. Many retro aesthetic photographs that you see online are created using this fantastic idea. You’ll be needing a prop for this one along with your subject, a tripod, and some editing.
You’ll need to place your tripod somewhere high and position your camera at a downward angle, then hold your prop such as flowers or sunglasses that you’ll reach towards the camera with to create depth. Edit the photo with some filters and a bit of a grain effect and you’re insta-ready!
Last on our list is the levitating object technique. This technique requires a bit of editing skill, but once you get the hang of it, you’ll realize how fun and creative it can be! Sure you could just throw up an object and try to capture the object still in the air, but the possibility of getting a worthy result is very rare.
So, you could use a tripod instead, click two pictures in the same pose and merge them while editing out the tripod. And you’re done!
