Your room, your apartment, your workplace, your favorite night club or bar... they're only a small percentage of what your camera is capable of taking pictures of. Get out of that seat, leave the car at home, put on your walking shoes and take it outdoors.
We’ve all been in that rut of what to take pictures of next. There’s only so many cute pictures you can take of your cat napping. Okay, maybe not, but there’s still plenty more of the world to be seen. You’re sitting by your window watching that tree blossom in March, turn bright green in the summer, and burning red and dark orange in the fall, and you missed the opportunity for all those great photographs.
Break that rut today and take it outdoors.
That scary outside world is not just some trees and grass either. It’s tall, glorious buildings. It’s street art. It’s dogs, cats, squirrels, rabbits, lions, tigers, and bears… OH MY!
The outdoors is also a wonderful place to experiment. Take a roll of color slide film and watch the sky pop and the grass shine. So many textures await your multiple exposures. A pile of colorful leaves covering your friends face like magic. Buildings intersecting each other. Cars speeding across the sky. The possibilities are endless.
If that’s not enough for your lomo hearts yearning, take that camera outside at night and see what you can do there.
Not only will you become better at the art you love by taking all these photos of the new world around you, you’ll also have a lot of fun, and get plenty of that much needed vitamin D.
