If you have the same themes and subjects for your photos, it might be time to get some new inspiration. This will help you come up with different pictures that will show your photography skills. Here are some tips that will help you!
Watching films is a great way to get inspiration for your photography. There are plenty of movies that have spectacular cinematography. You can get inspired by the framing, the colors and the overall feel of the film. You will be able to come up with breath-taking cinematic stills that will be unforgettable.
Traveling to new destinations is also a good idea in order to get some inspiration. You don’t have to travel to a different country in order to do this. Start locally and visit nearby places that you haven’t been to. You might be surprised at how many things you still haven’t photographed. Take pictures of people, objects, buildings and nature.
Shoot at Different Times
Experiment with natural lighting and try to shoot at different times of the day, or for a dramatic effect, try to shoot at night time! Experimenting with lighting also allows you to play with your filters and achieve different effects.

Don’t hesitate to try out different Lomography cameras, even those that you’re not familiar with. This will broaden your analogue photography skills since different cameras have different features.
These are just some tips to get you inspired. Each photographer gets inspiration from various ideas. All you have to do is go out, shoot and have a good time!
