Photographers often set themselves a challenge – to take one photo a day for a month or even a year. Why not do the same? Take a photo of something inspiring, every day over a chosen period of time and then make a photobook. Not only will it be a great memento, it will also make you stop and look at life around you every day. Challenge the kids to do it too.
Over the years, you have probably taken photos of your kids on their first day of school. It’s always interesting to take one on the last day too – and it’s a shock to see how much they have grown in just one school year. Why not pull all these photos together over the years and make a mini photobook? It would be a very personal gift for any student who is leaving school and heading to university.
You don’t automatically think of home improvements as a subject for a photobook, but it’s a great way to tell the story of what you have done to your house. Take photos before, during and after and then add in text to remind you of all the things you went through along the way. It’s an everyday thing, but is part of the story of your life.
Sometimes you get lucky and take an amazing photo. Maybe it’s the way the light falls on the subject, the colours or just that you clicked the button at the perfect moment. These photos can happen at any time, often when you least expect it. Be ready with your camera. Don’t leave fabulous photos living on your phone or camera, free them, print them, make them into something special.
Try and take some time out to appreciate the beauty of the world around you. We are all too busy and are always rushing around. We forget to be mindful of the sights and sounds of the everyday. If you can, just press the pause button for a few minutes each day and take a moment to look around you. If you see something beautiful or inspiring, take a photo. You never know what you might turn it into.
Pets make great subjects. They are always so photogenic! Take some photos of your pets as they go about their day. If you get lots of great pics, why not make a Shuffleprint? It’s a very cute way to show off your fur babies.
If you love gardening, take photos of the plants in your garden at different times of the year, it’s really interesting to see how different they look. You could make a photobook and include the names of all your plants. People always ask about them … and can you ever remember their names?!
