10 Amazing Objects To Impact Your Photos
In photography, most of the people do amazing photos with a nice make-up, accessories, lights set, and more only to create a good impacting photo. But, it exists some objects that can impact your photos and change the whole game without doing a lot of pre-production, the only thing you need to do is to buy them and put them in your camera backpack.
With the objects I will show you, you just need to put them in front of your lens; it could be with one hand and shooting with the other one or you can fix them with some plastic scotch (tape dispenser) around your lens without touching the glass of your camera and being very careful with it.
Yes! Feathers; they could be any color and any style you want, this could give you an unfocused color with a very natural flow. You can put it in the top, under, one side or in both sides of your lens. Also, this will helps you as accessory too in your models hair or body. Try it I’m sure you’ll love it!
We love crystals! These are amazing, not only as accessory for the background or photos of it. Mostly because you can use it in front of the lens and this will give you a “kaleidoscope” effect. The best one to use are the crystals that have division like a diamond.
3. Color Paper Cardboard
Like kids who love to do crafts with the cardboards. You’ll buy them and cut the in the form you like; circles, triangles, flowers, starts, anything you want!
You will put them in from of you lens and you’ll have a nice effect like a tunnel of colors, here you can buy colorful cardboards or just use the basic ones; black, white or brown.
You can do lots of things with real painting, but HEY! Be careful; you’ll do it painting a transparent paper, and then you can stick it into the lens. This will give a nice original touch! For a bigger production you can use the idea with a big glass, the only thing about this is that you’ll use it in a studio or at your home because it would be heavy to carry on, also you’ll need a tripod and an assistant if you want to use it in a photoshoot.
5. Glass of Water
Yes! Only a glass with a few spots of water can give your picture a very nice conceptual feeling. This will give an original touch to your photos, the best thing is that you can have a glass of water anywhere, also if your glass has a nice form with some designs this could be very interesting too. The only thing you need to do is to try and figure it out!
A mirror could be very original, it all depends how big it is and the way you want to use it. It could be a huge mirror in a photoshoot to have a nice double effect of the model’s body/face or it could be a small mirror in front of the lens that will reflect what you’re shooting or even better a pair of sunglasses with the mirror effect in the front like the aviator style “Ray Ban”.
Also, this could help you to bring more light to the photo if you use it as a reflector if you need to solve the light very fast at the moment. So, try and figure out the best way to use it!
7. Leaves & Flowers
It’s very funny but in almost every place you can find a leave or a flower, so this items are very useful to make nice photos, you can use them in front of your lens or in your model’s body or face as an accessory. This is a good option if you need to improvise while doing an outdoor photoshoot, also these nature items can give a colorful touch to your pictures if everything is really plain.
8. LED Lights
It exists lots of different presentations for the LED lights, but there’s lots of lanterns of different sizes and colors, this could be very useful in every single way from shooting videos in a macro style or just giving an original twist to your photos. If you don’t have one with bright colors just use the white one and edit the photo in Photoshop. Go and try it out!
Well, with this option you’re not going to set a huge fire, but you’ll buy a lighter and turn it on in front of your lens when you’re ready to take the picture, also you can have an assistant to do this or use a tripod, set everything and do it by yourself.
There are lots of different threads and colors, which you can use in a very original way, just try to find one that’s not too thin to have a good effect. You’ll put the threads the ones you love in front of the lens and you’ll stick them with some plastic scotch (tape dispenser) only for the moment you’re doing the photoshoot. Also, if you want to save time you can find a dream-catcher and it will do the same effect. These items will help you to play with the focus and have some interesting results.
Here you have 10 original items where you can play with your camera and focus. I highly recommend playing with them in your house before going to the out world and starting doing professional photoshoots with these items.
The most important thing here is to have a clean set up, try to do everything very carefully, because you don’t want to mess up your lenses and camera. Also, use a plastic scotch (tape dispenser) that doesn’t let the sticky glue into the objects, either ways tries to not put everything too tight. Remember that you can do also double exposures, take first the picture with these items and then your portraits, after in Photoshop you’ll do the effect of double exposure; you’ll be amazed of how nice it is!
