So, you’re an amateur/aspiring photographer. Whatever gear you have (or don’t have), whatever training and education you have (or don’t have) you can rectify. Equipment can be purchased. Courses can be taken. There are simple things that we think hold us back, but don’t – all it takes is time and money.
What you can’t buy, though, is experience. Many photographers lament being unable to travel to exotic locales where they can find inspiration and subjects for their photography – and use an inability to afford travel or find the time as an excuse as to why they haven’t been able to launch a photography career. But the truth is, you can find plenty of inspiration for great photography and awesome-looking photo canvas prints right in your own home. All you need to do is develop an eye for possibility.
Photo Canvas Prints from the Kids’ Room
A child’s room is usually one of the places in a home suffused with that substance known as Pure Imagination. Toys, artwork – everything in a kid’s room is designed to stimulate the imagination and the senses. It is, in other words, an ideal hunting ground for concepts that make incredible photo canvas prints. Think about:
- Legos and other construction-based toys. These can be made into incredible, colourful tableaus that can make for amazing macro photos.
- Dolls, soft toys and action figures, posed creatively against hand-made backgrounds can be turned into awesome photos that can be made to celebrate just about anything.
- Bedspreads, nightlights – anything in your child’s room can be turned into an amazing close-up photo.
Getting Inspiration from the Kitchen
Your kitchen is one of the warmest rooms in the house, suffused with lively, loving energy because it’s where you most directly care for your family, and it’s where everyone gathers at certain points in the day for sustenance and interaction.
Take a close look at the details of your kitchen – the spices, the gadgets, the decor. More importantly, consider the mess. Kitchens are living, breathing spaces in your home that get used – they represent your family in the most fundamental way. Consider taking some photos after breakfast – sunlight streaming in through the windows, your benches and table cluttered and splattered in that glorious way that shows a family just shared a meal and some memories there.
Inspiration is everywhere, and whether you have an expensive photographic setup or a smartphone and ambition, you can capture some amazing images without once leaving the house. And when you do – click here and we’d be honoured to turn those images into awesome wall art.
