Making Time Travel Possible With The Power Of Photography

It’s been so many months since the pandemic started, and there is still no end in sight. For now, the best way for us to protect ourselves and other people is to stay in our homes and avoid going out too much. The bad side here is that many people could not handle putting themselves in isolation for a very long time. We would need something worthwhile to do in our house, if you were not to meet our friends outside.

Some people take photos of their houses to practice their photography skill, which is a great way to let time pass. If you want to put a little twist into your photography project, you can use the power of the lens to take a trip back in time.

Yes, it would be as if you have entered a time machine and visit the yesteryears!

Re-Imagine Your House As If It Existed In The Early Centuries

Have you ever wonder what your house would look like if you live in the 18th century? This is where you can put your photography skills into good use. Of course, you have to do a little effort behind the camera to make your captures as believable as possible. If your house and the stuff inside it are kind of modern for your “travel back in time motif,” then you can remove some things from the background place something in to achieve that old, classic look.

Just like in every photography project that you may have done before, you have to visualize a nice concept in your head, then narrow it down further as to what subject you would like to capture. It could be a person sitting by the window, which is easier to capture a realistic 18th century vibe as you only have to prepare an applicable dress and other accessories for it.

There is nothing too hard or challenging if you think of photography as a great hobby. It is not only for the sake of improving your skill and gaining experience with the camera. It is about enjoying yourself and knowing just how much you can do when holding your camera.

You can be a little specific in your next sepia photography, like capturing people working at a storage in London back in the olden days. In this case, you need to do deeper research.

Getting Bored Staying At Home? Start Practicing Your Photography Skills!

The COVID-19 pandemic has taken our liberty to go outside the house to have fun. At this point, there is still the threat of catching the very dangerous novel coronavirus as we go out of the house. This is why the authorities strongly advises that the public should just stay at home, especially if there is no important business to deal with outside.

Seven months into this pandemic situation, people (including me) are already dying to have fun and enjoy outside the house. Doing nothing within these long weeks of quarantine is very tiring and lonely, and it is natural for us as humans to find entertainment, or at least do something that makes us productive.

In this case when going out of the house is still risky, it is best to do stuff that we can enjoy inside the walls of our home. Why not try picking up a new skill that we can use later on in our lives? Why not try photography?

Don’t Be Scared Of Trying Photography If This Is Your First Time

As they say, every professionals started somewhere. It is not like they were born automatically with honed skills and talent. For professional photographers, they have their own humble beginnings. Of course, they also started with very limited knowledge about photography. Heck, many professional photographers did not know most of the buttons and functions of a camera! It is like the only cameras they know how to use are those found in mobile phones under 25000.

Do not be afraid to try photography. Handling a camera may seem intimidating at first, especially if you have zero knowledge of its parts. Nonetheless, you have the Internet to search about the basic parts and functions of a camera. Take time to learn all these things, and then the next step for you is to capture your first social media-worthy shot.

Time To Get Serious With Photography

There are people who are into photography for their own enjoyment. Capturing their subjects at its best view or angle gives them some sort of achievement or fulfillment as they add their magnificent captures to their photography collection. However, there is no way for them to learn more and dig deeper into their creativity if they will not compete with other photographers in terms of skills.

Joining a photography contest is a major plus for experience. Your future clients could be looking into your history of joining, or perhaps winning, photo competitions and exhibits to know your capacity as a professional photographer.

Bragging rights and prizes aside, winning in a photography contest can give you the best feeling of fulfillment, especially if you want to find something to keep you motivated in this field.

It is also important for you to do your own research in looking for effective photography techniques. Of course, be mindful of those info that are erroneous. Luckily, there is review to help you in sorting the right information to help you in your photography.

Put Your Photography Skills Into Good Use By Creating Your Very Own Photo Exhibit Online!

We had never imagined that we would be staying inside our homes for several weeks, being unable to visit the usual places that we go to. Thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic, the entire world was put into a halt. This can be terrible for people who lives through outdoor activities. For those who are into visiting art and photo exhibits, they may have to wait until such time when the coronavirus cases begin to subside.

For now, we are strongly advised not to go outside our house when there is no immediate need to do so. However, the authorities would not understand how important it is for us to go to photo exhibits. We are given a brand new perspective in life through these photographs presented to us in every corner of the gallery.

At this moment, we may not be able to go to photo exhibits physically. However, there is still a way for us to enjoy going to one of these exhibits in the comfort of our homes. Why not have a virtual photo exhibit of your own?

Turning Your Social Media Into A Walk-Through Of Your Best Shots

If you have the photography skills, you will find it easy to capture interesting subjects even if you are confined by the walls of your home. Without going outside, you can take different shots of objects, be it in the bedroom, living room, dining area, or even the bathroom. You can make your own story or concept behind these shots and compile them for a worthy photo exhibit. To help you with some ideas, visit and pick the right ones for your exhibit.

However, even without the pandemic situation, it would be hard for anyone to hold their own photo exhibit. For one, you will need to get sponsors for your event, and it will take most of your time and resources to make sure that your photo exhibit will be a success. With a virtual photo exhibit, you don’t to worry about any of those things. All you need is your collection of photos that you are willing to share to the public.

You can use any of your social media platforms to hold your virtual photo exhibit. Although, using Instagram for this purpose is the best choice, since its user interface is easy to understand and your visitors will find it very comfortable to swipe through your photo collection with the IG feed.

Of course, before you present your photo works to the public, make sure that your photos are wonderfully shot. You can practice your camera techniques many times before you finalize the photos that will make it to your virtual exhibit.

A Good Activity To Do After The Pandemic: Making A Mural Painting For The Community!

Appreciating art is one of the best way for us to connect with the Earth. Art allows us to be connected to other people or cultures that are diverse and different from our way of living. With our God-given gifts, we can also make others appreciate the beauty of living by making wonderful works of art ourselves. Unfortunately, with the sudden occurrence of the COVID-19 pandemic this year, we were put in a situation where we have to disconnect from the rest of the world. Also, going out to see artworks in galleries is no longer possible.

While we are waiting for the situation to ease up, we can now think of those things that we can do once the crisis is over and we are once safe to go out in public. When it comes to our imagination, the sky is the limit and therefore, we can come up with fun and engaging artistic activities for everyone to enjoy. For one, putting up a jaw-dropping mural art for your community is a great way to give back and remind others to hope for something better and brighter in the future.

Making The Community Appreciate Mural Painting In The Same Level As High-Class Art

There are many things that every household is worrying about right now. Once the lockdowns are lifted, people will rush to do the things that need to be done. Some people might continue pursuing their passion, like improving their photography skill for their career. In terms of leisure, going to the mall or watching movies in theaters are obvious top choices. But what are the chances that these people will want to go to an art exhibit? That is possible, but what’s not likely is to get them to appreciate mural art all of a sudden.

The problem in our society today is that the appreciation of art has become a classist issue, because even if we deny it, only those in the upper class have access to renowned visual artworks and study about them. This is through taking up art classes and visiting art galleries and museums, and we know that going to these places would require you to shed some bucks. Fortunately, there is a way to promote visual arts in our simple and humble communities without having to spend too much. They will be lucky to have free Robux as well.

The Origin Of Mural Painting, And How It Can Help Your Community

The word “mural” pertains to an artwork that is placed directly to a wall or ceiling. What’s interesting is that the practing of creating mural actually originated tens of thousands of years ago. The first murals are believed to be created by the first men in walls inside the cave where they lived in. Of course, back then, the concept of art is not as pronounced as what we have today. However, because creativity is inate to every human, the first men were able to express their artistic juices by drawing figures in the walls through carving. Throughout the years, we have discovered many ways on how to create figures. At this point, we now know how to apply paint to a wall.

Because anyone can create murals in empty walls in a community, for as long as you have permission to do so, this makes visual art more accessible to everybody. Not only those who can afford a trip to large museums have the chance to learn more about art. By looking at the magnificent murals in the community, everyone, even the young ones, can appreciate art more deeply and even discuss among themselves about their understanding in art.

Develop Your Photography Skills Inside Your Home To Ease The Pandemic-Induced Anxiety

Many people were caught off guard when the coronavirus disease of 2019 or COVID-19 was declared as a pandemic. The World Health Organization has given warnings that the virus causing this pneumonia-like illness, the 2019 novel coronavirus or the SARS-CoV 2, can spread at an exponential rate once it is let out in the open. And just like that, COVID-19 cases are rising continuously in every continent of the world. Major cities were forced to enforce lockdown measures in hopes that the spread of the deadly virus would be halted. Unfortunately for the millions of people struggling to live their lives, they need to find comfort in their very own homes and wait until the situation gets a bit lighter.

When a city is in a lockdown, mass gatherings are not allowed and social distancing must be practiced at all times. Every household is also expected to remain inside their home unless there is an urgent need to go outside, perhaps to get something to eat or be treated for their sickness. All this points to us getting used to be isolated from the rest of the world.

Sure, it can get very lonely, but we are doing this for the sake of battling the pandemic. Also, there is no reason for us to feel lonely as we can always find something interesting to do. Why not try photography inside your house?

Finding A New Hobby Inside Your Home With Photography

Photographers who rely on income from events such as promenades, graduations and weddings are feeling the negative impacts of the lockdown. Aside from having no income to sustain their needs, they have nothing else to do with their time, or at least to practice their passion.

You must remember that a part of being a skilled photographer is to understand how to challenge yourself to put the skills you already have to the test. Also, in every situation, you are being challenged to acquire new skills that will allow you to expand your boundaries as a photographer. In the case of being locked inside your homes during a pandemic, you can find an opportunity to hone your crafts by trying home photography.

Of course, if you are still a beginner who wants to experience photography, starting at home to look for interesting subjects for your lenses will be a good idea. Increasing your skills cannot happen overnight. It is not like you are just counting up to 0345 and suddenly, you are a master of photography. Everyone needs to start somewhere at his or her own pace.
