Got windows? Why not set up a simple photo shoot in your home using nothing but a window and a table… then sell the best photos in online stock photo agencies? It’s fun! Let me show you… Below are some “spring-themed” photos I took in my dining room this morning, based on the photos I found yesterday for inspiration (see those here). Props: Ever since Valentine’s Day, my local grocery store has been full of flowers — perfect for spring themes — so I picked up some of those, along with jelly beans, and cut a piece of paper to look like a blank card. Setup: Basically, I pulled my kitchen table in front of the window. Then, using a few tricks I’ve learned from our stock photography instructors, I tried to compose the photos with stock in mind… I tried to “work the shot,” taking as many different variations as I could. With such a simple subject, it’s fun to try every angle and composition you can think of. In the end, I had a LOT of fun and came away with photos that I can sell as stock, too. Thinking about Easter, I tried putting jelly beans into the scene… … But it doesn’t work. As a viewer, I think “Why are there jelly beans with tulips?” Besides, I can think of something much better to do with jelly beans — a real creative twist! Can’t wait to show you what it is tomorrow… [Editor’s Note: Learn more about how you can turn your pictures into cash in our free online newsletter The Right Way to Travel.
