Creative photo ideas for April: 06 Shoot a single theme

Whether it’s a single colour, a person or widespread objects like doors, windows or chairs, building up a collection of photos with a single theme can provide a useful focus when you’re struggling for inspiration.

It also provides a point of connection between pictures taken weeks, months or years apart.

Let’s take ‘green’ as your first project. Spring is the perfect time to try this, with vegetation at its most lush.

But everything from beer bottles to fruit and veg is fair game when it comes to this challenge.

You’ll need to make it clear to the viewer that green is the theme. Try using composition to draw attention to the green object or lighting to highlight the colour within a wider scene.
