While walking around with your camera, chances are you've passed by a window more than once and didn't realize its creative potential. Adorned with intricate details, paint peeling off the sides, or stained with history, windows make great subjects and they're bound to give your shots an extra oomph. Here, we share some visual inspiration for your next photo walk.
Windows As Your Subject
Not all windows are alike. They give character to a home and reveal a structure's history. Mundane as it may initially seem, they make great subjects. Get creative by incorporating light and shadows, shooting double exposures, or making colors pop by using color filters.
Frame Your View
It's a no-brainer, but when you want extra detail in your composition, use windows to frame your subject. Straight, angular edges will help to dramatise a picture-perfect view, or draw the eye directly towards your subject.
Do a Double Illusion
If you love the double exposure look, glass reflections can give you a similar effect. Move around and shoot from different angles, you'll be surprised how many unique photographs you'll come up with!
We'd love to see how you incorporate windows into your photographs, so don't forget to share your favorite snaps on your LomoHome, or on social media with the hashtag #heylomography!
