Often we feel stuck in photography, lack of inspirations and passion. Try out the following tricks to re-ignite your photographic love.
Weekly/Monthly photography assignments
Okay, say you can’t afford to take a photo everyday. I bet you can always spare a minute or two in a week(or even, a month) for photography, right? Try to set yourself a new topic every week, hunt for the moment and publish your work (eg. to Steply). Posting your photos is important as the social pressure would push you to keep going on.
Start the trend! Shall we make this week’s topic “Clouds”? Post your photo on Steply and hashtag your best clouds photo with #Weeklychallenge . Let the community drive you forward.
Take photos in showers/swimming pools/beach
Okay I get what you’re thinking. Waterproof gear is expensive, right? Here is a cheap option: use condoms.
Sam Noyoun has come up with the idea of “Dual Waterproof Consumer Electronics - the condom housing”, which is inspired by Navy SEALS’s approach to seal firing assemblies for their underwater explosives using condoms. The original author of this tutorial also created this to demonstrate the effectiveness of this technique with a cellphone.

What is your most wanted super power? For me it’s flying as it’d make taking birds eye view photos easy. But with this trick, I guess I don’t need to have super powers anymore.
Mike Larson, the photographer, tossed his fish-eye lens equipped dslr into the air and took a paranoma photo for his crowd. To mimic the effect you can have a iPhone SLR mount or one of those mini phone lenses from Photojojo.
iPhone toss how-to:
1. Set a slow shutter speed setting using these apps
2. Use a self timer of 1 or 2 seconds
For Steps 1+2 you can use the following apps: Gorillacam
3. Now toss your camera by running the timer. Careful! Don’t take it higher than 20 to 40 cm in air.
4. Don’t forget catch your camera back after your amazing toss.
For amazing effects, have a light source you have set for yourself and toss. This creates an amazing light-painting like effect!
