When the coronavirus pandemic swept across the country, upending plans, and making most of us stay at home, many people started to pursue their creative endeavours. From knitting to cooking and also some indoor photography.
A home photoshoot is a creative way to pass the time and capture moments with your loved ones. Whether you’re working with portraits, still lives, or other genres entirely, the art of photography can promote healing and daily motivation during a challenging time.
For those who got interested in photography during the lockdown and seeking for offbeat ideas to try out home photoshoot, here we’ve rounded up 5 creative ideas that you can try at home.

 Photograph Your kids

Photography allows us to capture precious moments that you’ll love today and that your children will love in years to come. When you’re at home, you might notice there will be a lot of cute moments of your kids in simple daily activities.

For example, maybe your kids are playing with toys, reading a book, colouring, heart-melting cuddles or kisses with their sibling.

Just be there and watch them in quiet, those moments will happen magically ad once you capture it, try to turn them into something that they can hold and treasure like a photo book. Looking back to those moments one day will remind them of their childhood days and how much they’re loved and cared for them when you spend some time at home with them.

Up close and Personal

Try close-up photography! The beauty of close -up photography is that you can do it at home with very minimal equipment.

Just look around your house, if you have a garden or any houseplant decoration at your home, snap some close-up pictures of them. As plants make wonderful subjects for macro and close-up photography, it’s a great way to experiment with your photography skill as well as your creativity in taking photos.

If you’re not really sure of taking pictures of plants, you can go for close-up shots for water droplet from the faucet, your jewellery or something that have a different texture to level up your photography.

Pro Tip: If you think that you’ve clicked a very nice close-up picture, why not print them on canvas prints and show them off in a stylish way. You can either print them on different canvases and arrange them on your walls or turn them into story tag cards to do a scrapbooking. It all depends on your own creativity.


Capture Your Fur Baby

Many people love taking and seeing photos of pets, even if they don’t own them themselves. If you’re someone who owns your own pet, why not get good, sharp and well-lit images of them at home?

look at the best ways to capture them, from shots of taming, quirky expressions and Fun poses that can yield unique photos. To make it easier for you to get their attention and the type of pictures you want to take, try some tricks like giving them food or throwing toys to them.

Taking their pictures with their favourite rope or snack can add character, not to mention a playful sense of mischief. Think of something different like catching ball mid-air, or pawing a bone. These can act as a focal point, help them to relax and make it easier for you to snap the pictures just as how you want it to be.

Pro Tip: Your fur baby deserves to be the star too. Make them a star by either printing their best photos on Mounted framed prints or turning them into a photo book.


Play With Shadows

Want to tell your story using only light? Wait until the golden hour and capture your photos to get long or distorted shadows.  Since an object’s shadow is just as intriguing as the object itself, your photos will look more captivating.

All that you need to do is look out for large windows and pay attention to surrounding areas where natural light is streaming to your place your subject and make use of it. Play around the shadows that come streaming from the sunbeam light and try out different shooting angles until you get the shadows where you want them.

If you want to take pictures of yourself in an artistic way, allowing the shadow to be cast on part of your body, ensuring that prominent features such as the eyes are well illuminated or flipping shadow photos vertically in post-processing can create amazing and mysterious images that make the viewer stop and stare.

Capture a Rainy Day

 Rainy days present some great photo opportunities just waiting to be captured.  As rainy days can add drama and a sense of moodiness to your pictures, taking photographs on rainy day-focusing on the windows or doors can be a great way to unleash your creativity in photographing your pictures.
