It seems that we will not be able to hold in-person meetings at least in February; so, let’s find ways to exercise our photographic skills at home or other accessible locations. Subjects are plenty; it only takes some search and a probing eye to spot them.
We will not set any themes, but we would like to give you some tips though, as food for thought and for …camera clicks.
•Macro photography is a great way to explore our intimate spaces and also nature. A close-up attachment is a very inexpensive accessory and available at photo stores. Many smartphones have close-up possibilities too. (check this website: Protected content
•Old stuff can make beautiful photos. Check your “junk” boxes, chests, and other storage places.
•Food photography can be fascinating; so much more so, as you can create your subject yourself. This includes cooked food, beverages, fruits, vegetables, etc. in spectacular arrangements.
•Parts of the body.
•Jewels.
•Abandoned- buildings and vehicles.
•Bottles of various shapes and colors.
•Eye- or sunglasses.
•Reflections, of any type, on water, glass, mirrors, metal objects, raindrops, and more.
•Stairs from unusual angles.
•Chimneys with- or without billowing smoke.
•Sunrise-sunset.
•Fireplaces, barbecue stoves, furnaces or other fire pits.
•People at work.

The web is full of ideas.
