Lockdown. Stay at home. Quarantine. Isolation. Social distancing. These certainly are unprecedented times for us all. How are you finding it? Are you desperate to let loose with your camera?

It may feel like you can’t enjoy your passion for photography right now but we have some tips for you. Photography can be a great way to help us all get through this!

A room with a view

How about nature photography from your window? The animals are taking over in some places. I’ve noticed the birds being much braver and we now have a resident muntjac in the garden! For these photos you might need a telephoto lens and a tripod.

Get up close to the subject

Macro photography has become very popular in the home. Check out the fibres in your materials, liquid making a splash or even insects, particularly spider webs are great. For the best results a macro/close up lens is best, tripod and good lighting is a must.

Portrait Photography

You’re probably spending a lot of time with your housemates or family. Have some fun to break up the day. Why not get them to pose for you? In the future your kids/grandchildren might ask how you got through the 2020 Global Pandemic. Capture the moment! Any camera can achieve this, however for best results a prime lens, tripod and lighting equipment will give you the best results.

Take to the streets

Street photography increases your options too! It’s important to have your daily exercise. Running, walking or even popping to the shops…they all give you a chance to capture this unique moment in modern times. We’d argue there has never been a better time to take pictures of the streets. The emptiness and light can only usually be found at the crack of dawn. Again, the best results are achieved with prime wide angle lenses, but any camera can currently work in this situation.

Don’t forget to print

Why keep the images locked away digitally. The best way to showcase them is still printing. We are still operational on both digital and film. Use the Fuji imagine app and receive your pictures through the letterbox. You can also create some photobooks to log those moments for posterity.

We’re here to help

Me and the team at Campkins Cameras really do hope you are keeping safe and making the most of the lockdown. If you want to chat about our tips or anything else then we’d be happy to hear from you.

Take care.
