Since the birth of digital photography and the popularity of the mobile phones with built in cameras, photography has got to be the fastest growing story telling tool and creative outlet for the general public. With an iPhone in every pocket, the accessibility of a simple and effective point and shoot camera is unprecedented. And with photo sharing apps like Instagram, it seems everyone’s got photography on the brain. So, now that everyone has got a camera—and are not afraid to use it—how about taking it to the next level?
As a self-proclaimed everyday photographer, I’ve stumble across some unique and handy techniques that have piqued my own creative curiosity and have challenged me to think outside the frame (pun intended). If you’re looking for a new way to see the world through your lens, perhaps one of these ideas will not only help you do exactly that, they might even inspire you capture more compelling images. Never underestimate the power of photographic play!
All of these tricks work with your DSLR (big fancy camera), your point and shoot, and your iPhone. The images of this series were shot with my iPhone and edited via Instagram. I like to keep it simple, and fun!
If you’ve got any great photo tricks of your own, I would love to hear about them. Inspiration comes in all kinds of surprising ways. Add yours to the list!
