In this great video from COOPH, they ask you to challenge yourself by photographing one object!
Will you do the challenge? If so, show us your results in the comments below!
Look for a versatile object that allows you to photograph it in different ways.
Take your object and try the following techniques:
1. Get texture
Go close-up or use a macro lens to create different effects
2. Play with Colors
Add color using crayons, pencils or textas. Elevate your object to create bokeh with the colored background.
Experiment with color gels. Make contrast with color.
3. Experiment with Black and White
Use dramatic lighting.
4. Shoot Silhouettes
Cut some wire and attach to your object. Shoot in front of a bright light source. Bounce your side light with a mirror to create a glowing silhouette.
5. Cut and Peel it
Cut it into shapes. Use a whiteboard to reflect and a translucent surface to place your object on. Place your object on the translucent board, and backlight it.
6. Shape it
Make some creative cuts. Find interesting patterns that match and place your object onto it.
