The majority of the photographers start taking photos hoping to be able to capture the unexpected. There is a certain rush that photographers experience, but the truth is that as time goes by, this rush is replaced by routine. However, there are some things that they can try in order to spice up their photos.
If you would like to have some experiments, you might want to start with the human face. This is one of the most important sources of inspiration for photographers because it can express millions of different feelings and it is the duty of photographers to capture all these.
You may ask yourself what a face tells you if it is partially hidden. What does the subject make you feel when he or she is wearing sunglasses? Did you ever think about having your subject wear a gas mask? What if the first thing that you think about when you see a picture of this kind?
In case you are ready to broaden your horizons, think about buying some body paint. These usually look like crayons and they come in many different colors. In order to achieve a higher impact, add some sugar to the model’s wet face and add some red body paint. You can be sure that the effects you will achieve are truly unique.
Go Crazy with it
You could experiment with different kinds of fluids and the way they reflect light. As one of the crazy ideas that you might try, you should pour some milk over the face of the model and try to capture the random patterns that the milk creates. You can be sure that this is a portrait people aren’t tired of.
If you would like to have more colors on your photos, think about pouring food coloring on the models. Sometimes photographers find the food coloring to be too watery. In this case you should add some milk and sugar to it and you can achieve a gel-like substance. The best thing about this technique is that it is entirely random and unpredictable.
Finger Painting Colors
The photographers who jump into the world of colors may find that finger paint really does the trick. Again, you have to make sure that you use the colors totally randomly in order to achieve a more special and chaotic effect.
