Well, this bites, and ya, I'm kinda feeling a bit sorry for myself these days, not being able to go out and shoot sporty related stuff, but I know it's for the best, and I know we all need to stay put, stay inside, and stay safe if we're all going to do our part in making sure this Covid 19 beast doesn't take us all out. How are you all coping with this? Finding other things to shoot? Working on your backlog of projects? Me, I'm forcing myself to be creative and find other things to shoot, mostly focusing on adding content to my various Stock Photo and Video portfolios. Trying to come up with ideas and projects that can be found within the confines of my own home. It's a bit of a struggle, 'cause I really like shooting outside!
Anyway, there are some interesting ideas and things to shoot that can be found in and around my place, and maybe you too can find some interesting things to shoot like these. For instance, this whole Covid 19 thing got me thinking about whether or not I had some "medical" related items lying around that I could shoot, and lo and behold, I just happened to find some expired cold and flu medicine in my cabinet that worked perfectly. I guess it was a good thing that I don't clean out my medicine cabinet that often...?
Here's an example of what I was able to come up with using this old medicine:
In addition to this sort of content, and more in line with what I really like shooting, I grabbed my board and snapped a few photos of it, more for stock, than artsy, although I do have some really cool artsy stock footage of my board, so rest assured, I'm still striving for cool angles, cool lighting, and a slightly different take on stuff. It's my achilles heel when it comes to shooting stuff.
