Summer themed canvas ideas
Please don’t shout too loud in case we scare it off again, but it does look like summer has finally arrived! Everyone’s favourite season is also a great opportunity to get your camera out and have some fun – especially on your holidays.
You can have a lot of fun simply recording your vacation adventures, but this week we thought that we would share some ideas for more creative images that would look great on canvas and give you a more lasting memory of your family break.
Fun on the beach
There are loads of fun photo opportunities to be had on the beach. You can get the whole family involved in some of the following:
Writing in the sand is a classic way to immortalise a holiday moment, but you can make these moments more special by using pebbles or sea shells to spell out your messages. Why not try writing out your location and the date and then have the whole family sit above it. If you do this on successive family holidays you could create a wonderful canvas collage of all of your family vacations.
Burying their parents in the sand is something every kid loves to do, but you can go a step further and turn them into mermaids and mermen instead – especially if you use seaweed as hair!
Bored of mermaids? Try this: bury one of your family members right up to the neck then stand over them with your feet either side of their head facing away from them. If you bend down and hold onto the sides of their head it will look like you’ve dropped your head in the sand! You may need a couple of tries to get the perspective right, but it’s worth it.
Collect smooth pebbles and arrange them in the shape of feet walking across the sand. This is such a simple idea, but we can’t even begin to tell you how sweet it looks when you get it right.
Draw funny faces in the sand and overlay them with your shadow. You can expand this idea using bits of seaweed, pebbles and driftwood to create a really cool, clever and funny image.
We hope these ideas have given you enough inspiration to take some great photos on your next trip to the beach. We love to see your creative shots arrive in our lab because it gives us all such a boost while we’re printing them, so get out and have some fun!
