After a long, cold winter it’s great to have more hours of sunlight and warmer weather. Spring is the perfect time to get outside and work on your photography. If you’re looking for a specific project to get your creative juices flowing, here are 5 ideas that will allow you to enjoy spring while photographing the nature around you.
Spring Photo Shoot
With the warm weather and beautiful colors, spring is the perfect time of year to take pictures! Whether you’re looking for ideas for a spring photo shoot or just want to snap some fun pics of the kids this Easter, you can try some of these inspirational ideas.
Don’t let the rain keep you indoors. Put some rain boots on the kids and snap some pictures of them splashing in the puddles. It’s a darling and inexpensive way to add a touch of personality to your cute Easter pictures. Have them jump in puddles, walk next to a stream, or even line up multiple kiddos and get a shot of just their boots!
Bright, fun umbrellas are a great way to add a pop of color to your spring photo shoot. They come in so many different colors and patterns that you’re sure to find one that speaks to you! Plus, we’ve never seen a kid who doesn’t like playing with an umbrella! Try having your little ones spin them, peek out from behind, or stand underneath. You could even get the whole family in on the fun and create some wet and wild Easter photos where every member of the family is standing under their own umbrella.
Spring Engagement Photos
When you’re thinking of spring engagement photos, think warm lighting, lots of greenery, flowers and cheerful color palettes. Shoot dreamy and flowery spring engagement photos complete with cherry blossoms, canoes, and flower crowns.
How romantic is a kiss under a beautiful floral canopy of cherry blossoms?
Even if you get a gray day without those perfect rays of sun beaming down everywhere, you can still incorporate some spring into your spring engagement photos with special accents like a flower headpiece.
Spring Family Photos
Spring always brings life, freshness, inspiration, and new ideas. Here are some amazing spring family photo ideas to shoot with your Fujifilm X-T200 Mirrorless Camera from Beachcamera.com when the warmer weather arrives this spring.
If your family loves riding bikes together, why not add one to your spring family photo shoot to personalize it a little? The best part is that you probably already have one sitting in your garage! Consider adding a basket to the front and filling it with fresh flowers. Make the bike the central focus of your photo and have the family gather around it.
Bubbles are great for getting genuine smiles out of the kids and add a fun element to spring family photos. Get a close-up shot of your little one blowing a stream of bubbles from the wand or blow some yourself and capture a pic of them running or spinning through them! Bubbles will work to create a truly magical element in your spring family photos.
Spring Landscape Photography
Spring is a great season for photographers. Everything seems fresh and vibrant, and it feels as if the surroundings just want to be photographed.
Go into the Forest
The foggy mornings during springtime are great opportunities for stunning spring landscape photography. Compose with the fresh greenery and foggy landscapes to create a mysterious look. When processing your images, you can emphasize the fog by adding more light.
Photograph Two Seasons in One Photo
With the snow just starting to melt, you may come across landscapes reminiscent of the harsh winter. Snowy mountains with new vegetation can give a feel of having two different seasons in one frame. Capture this dual season from above by using your drone from Beachcamera.com.
Spring Flower Photography
Spring brings such a dramatic change with all its colors. It’s the perfect time to experiment with different lenses and try something new with spring flower photography.
Macro Floral Shots
Because you can honestly never go wrong taking close-up photos of flowers. They’re the best subjects because they’re naturally beautiful and colorful, plus they won’t move around. They just sit there looking pretty and waiting for someone to capture their essence. If you’re not afraid of them, you can get some great macro shots of bees doing what they do best, collecting pollen on the pretty flowers.
Tulip Fields Forever
If you’ve never seen a field full of tulips in bloom, you’ve never lived! They’re quite the sight, and a great place for taking some fun and colorful portrait shots.
