Getting some incredible photography done inside your home, some tips and techniques – Part 2

Tip 766 (Learn the tricks of depth and field and focusing): Using the concept of Depth of Field can make some very interesting photos. Control these through your aperture control (a higher aperture of 1/22 means a larger Depth of Field, and a smaller aperture of 1/2.8 means a much smaller Depth of Field), and see how some of the sharp focus on subjects while a much more blurred overall background can convert the normal everyday view into something else.

Tip 767 (Learn the tricks of composition): Inside your home is the true test of composition. You have seen the objects on a regular basis, and this is where you can experiment with how to decide on the best composition. Let your mind be refreshed, try to think about changing angles, what subject should be included where, what should be the best background. You will find that if you are able to really do some experimentation, this will help you incredibly in your photo composition when you are out shooting.

Tip 768 (Review the distance from which you shoot objects): When shooting objects inside your home, you need to be able to experiment. An object can look very different when you vary the distance from which you shoot. For example, a flower vase may look ordinary when you are shooting from a distance, but there may be some intricate art work that looks very interesting when you go closer. Similarly, shooting from a macro type distance of a few cm can give an entirely new perspective to many shots.

Tip 769 (Experiment with Black and White photos in your home): You must be having many objects that are much older, made of more antique type materials such as brass or bronze; experiment with shooting these in Black and White or converting their color shoots into Black and White. Some of these may be very interesting photos.

Tip 770 (Shooting light objects inside your home): Shooting light sources in your own homes can present some very interesting photos. Consider the case where a candle is being shot insider your home; in such cases, the wax melting forms some very interesting patters and structures, and can look great.
