Got flowers laying around your home? Doesn’t matter if they are real or artificial there are too many poses and small photoshoot ideas you can use flowers in. Sit in a chair and shoot yourself in 50 different poses. Lay on the ground and sprawl them around your hair and face. Throw the petals in a bubble or milk bath and create some awesome content!
Hats, earrings, purses, sunglasses,magazines, newspapers, you name it, you can use it. Above are some examples at some “outside the box” photoshoot ideas with your accessories.
Shooting in your bedroom should be one of the more comfortable places to shoot. But what can you do beyond just the “getting cozy” or “netflix in bed” kind of shot? Well, there’s plenty. Ever thought about dressing up to get in bed? That’s right- put on your finest dress and heels. Jump and twirl around until you get the perfect shot. Just be careful while doing it. Want to get messy? Rip open that old feather pillow and use it as confetti. Hang up side down. Take portraits and use the lighting and bedroom sheets to obscure the image.
There are so many ways you can get creative in the kitchen. Just look around and see what you can use as props. I have a small kitchen so there are only a few good angles I can really capture. When shooting in my kitchen I love to sit up on the counter, pout myself a cup of coffee, cook some breakfast and shoot away. And never forget about the food- which brings me to my next point.
FOOD & DRINK
Food photoshoots don’t have to be a typical flatlay of something you just cooked. Unless, of course, that is what you’re after. Get CREATIVE with your food and use it as a prop in a styled home photoshoot. What can you shoot that shows movement? Juice, Milk, Coffee! Try capturing yourself pouring a cup of cereal, make a big splash with milk, or drip some from your spoon. Here are a few of my favorite “shooting with food” inspiration:
You may need your roommate or partner to help you with this one. But try shooting through windows and capture the essence of “looking through the lens.”Use a rainy day to capture your reflection in the glass, or just use the lighting from outside to capture your shiloutee. Or use one of the mirrors laying around your house and get creative, indoors and outside!
All you need is your camera, a backdrop ( I use a sheet), and some good lighting. Get ready to take some self portraits and make them unique. You can do this by painting your face, using glitter, stickers, stick-on gems, buttons, or butterflies! You can order online or shop your local craft store. You can try doing your makeup by doing a Spring, Summer, Fall, or Wintery look. Blow bubbles, or use bubble gum. Try a new hairdo. Laugh. Cry. Try something NEW and get out of your comfort zone.
