Your Feet Can be the Stars!

If you are shy and you don't feel like exposing your face and for those times where you don't feel like a star on your photos, then you might ask yourself what other unique subjects you can shoot... Here's a tip: Why not give your wonderful feet a chance to show off their talents?

Do you sometimes feel like having an analogue camera on hand but not wanting to show your face in the photos? It may be because you think your hairstyle is not good enough or you are not wearing any make-up. You still want to shoot some pictures yet you have run out of subjects to photograph. Why not look down and see that the right subject has always been there in front of you? Yes, you’re right! It’s your feet!

I like shooting my feet very much. I use the photos to keep track of where I’ve been. In my blog, there is even an album for what I consider my “big star”, my feet! At first, I took pictures of my feet just because I got very bored. I just spontaneously did that. In taking photos, we usually just see what’s in front of us but actually, I realized that the scenery around our feet is really quite good!

Shooting your feet makes you truly feel that you are standing on the ground, on the earth. It helps you to record different textures or substances on the ground such as a particular shop, an open ground or lawn, the sands of the beach, or even in the air or water around you. Capturing your feet with a friend’s will also be a good subject.

Looks like our great star—-the feet, can indeed act! So next time, when you have your camera with you, give them a chance to take the stage!
But remember to watch your step when you shoot!
