Ideas For Your Winter Photography Project
Photography is a year-round profession and hobby, with many going to great lengths to get a shot that perfectly captures a provocative moment. We work closely with photography professionals (check out the innovative magic mirror flight case we made to order for Bright Photography here) and as a result, have seen some stunning images and concepts released. Inspired by the colours, weather and landscapes of the upcoming season, we’ve put together a quick bank of wintery photography ideas that always deliver awesome results.
Weather dependent, this classic seasonal shot can be fairly straightforward to capture. Falling snow offers a magical, idyllic and altogether unusual view of familiar environments (a dawn view of that field you drive past every day, your street aglow with streetlamps in the evening or even your kids playing outside).
Many photographers opt to snap snowy landscapes at night, as the contrast between the light snow, dark skies and (if needed/available) other lighting creates an incredibly dynamic and often peaceful view of the world. Transform even the busiest of city spaces into a peaceful winter postcard with good timing, the right angle – and by being lucky with snowfall!
Some people might not be too excited about the notion of shorter daylight hours, but the darker skies present a fantastic opportunity to collate some stunning long exposure images. You can immortalise the stars with a super-long exposure night time shot or capture your city alive with fluorescent lights in motion. Either way, long nights and inky skies make drastic snaps with magnificent colour contrasts. Despite not having huge circumstantial requirements, make sure to plan your shots to ensure you capture those winter landscapes.
As we approach Christmas, villages, towns, cities and urban centres deck themselves out to the max with rich seasonal colours and sparkling lights. Make the most of the colour scheme that comes just once a year with co-ordinated shots of European markets, outdoor events, carolling crowds and seasonal nature (berries, holly, robins – you name it!) Think about how to integrate festive decorations into your winter photography – from the quaint to the spectacular – and create a themed portfolio packed with scenic shots.
