Projects to do in quarantine for filmphotographers… It’s a difficult time right now. Your life is probably very different than it was a month ago and with you there are a lot of people facing the same problems like boredom, stress, worry. One luxury problem the creative people might experience is not being able to get out your creativity as usual. I find myself being frustrated at times because I feel like I should create right now, but I don’t know what project I could do. Even more now that I am stuck at home and have time for it. Here 5 things I thought could be fun projects to do at home.
1. Minimalistic objects.
You know that feeling when you look at something and you realised you never knew it was there? I am sure there are places like this, even in your own house. Make a very minimalistic photoserie containing al those little corners, objects such as pipes or a doorknob.
2. Work with food.
If you already survived the craziness now going on in the supermarket, you’ll have enough food to take some beautiful photos with. You could keep it very minimal or documental and warm.
3. Subjects like water, light and flowers
I thought about putting these together because the subjects you use is actually up to you. Which one you use and whether you use them together. I think all of them have something very magical and could be used in many different ways.
4. Make portraits
Sounds impossible and it might be in some countries. But if you have some freedom to go out of your house you might be able to ask people to take their portrait, in front of their house, or even through the window (if the project is planned before of course, let’s not be creepy).
5. A photo everyday challenge
One of these projects to do in quarantine for filmphotographers is challenging yourself by taking a photo everyday. About what you are seeing, how you are feeling or simply documenting how your life is going now during the pandemic. By writing notes and taking a photo every day you will feel way more productive, and you will have something meaningful when this all is over, which hopefully is, soon.
