I’m sure many of us have had the problem of wanting to capture a particular image and not being able to find it within yourself to do so. We all have these images in our minds that we wish we could capture but are unable to. This is why you need some photography theme ideas.

Create Illusions

There are lots of different ways photography can be used to create illusions, one of which is with a digital camera. For example, when you use a digital camera with a good shutter speed and you’re more comfortable using a camera then you can create illusions with your subject movement. How? Well, by setting the aperture to a greater value, for example f/stop 10, you’ll be able to capture movement and have the camera lens open wider. The depth of field will be bigger because the lens is open wider, this creates an area in which you can capture the subject in focus.

Another way photography can be used is when you want to take photos of water drops. How? You can have a pinhole camera, which is really cheap and easy to use. Then, you just point the camera at the water drops, set the aperture to its maximum value and take photos of them in as many directions as you like.

Now, let’s talk about photography of still life. As we said earlier, there are lots of ways this can be done but we are going to name a few simple ideas here. One way to create blurry images of a person, dog or flower is to use slow shutter speeds. To achieve this, set the aperture to its maximum value and take photos of the subject at various directions and speeds. If you wish to make abstract photography then you can play with different settings on the camera, for example on the slow shutter speed, so that the image becomes blurred.

Another way to create blurred photographs of subjects by using slow shutter speeds is to open the aperture very wide. So, in this example, you can open the aperture up until you get a blurry image. And then, you can reduce the blur by closing the aperture and then increasing the shutter speed to reduce the blurry image.

And here is another simple tip for photography. By using a computer program such as Photoshop, you can digitize your photographs digitally. After that, you can print those images and then engrave the photographs electronically by following the instructions in the software.

And here is another idea. Lighting is very important when you are taking photographs of outdoors. You need to use the right type of lighting. For example, if you are taking a photograph of a person in front of a light trail, then you have to expose the light trail for a longer period of time. Or, you can use an aperture wider than the required in the photo to capture more light trails.
