When using my camera inside, the lighting is either too yellow, too dark, too bright, and very…fake looking. Also, do you want every photo to look the same? Do you enjoy cool effects and something that makes your photo POP? Here are some items I used to get these fun photos…
I could always use a reflector to reflect the sunlight from outside onto the object or person I am trying to capture, that always works fantastic. It also gives the object interesting shadows and highlights, depending on the objects outside the window as well. Trees will show branches on a face through the window, and blinds will show horizontal lines on your subject, which always looks cool!
If you don’t have a reflector…use tin foil! Does the same thing, and you can get a whole roll of it at Dollar Tree for just a dollar! Just place it under your near your subject (wherever you want the most light) and bam! You brought the sun to your home.
Now, that is an easy tip…if you want to get really creative, head to your local Walmart or any other store that sells fabrics (I use Walmart because there is a discount section of cut up, leftover fabric for under a dollar). Look for fabric like this…..Fabric for cheap
Now, with the fabrics I found, pink, white, red…thought maybe it would be cool to place over a subject, or maybe put over the lens of my camera in a bright setting? Let me try it out…and I will show you my results.
Here are some examples of the work I did recently.
Just like that, you have some interesting photos. The ones above, creepy, but there is something about the blur and the lighting that really makes the photos pop, to me anyway. Well, good luck and check out my other blog posts for more photography tips!
