    I'm 15 and a fairly new photographer, although i have intrest in cameras and used to work with video camera's alot.
    I'm attending worksop college in september and have been advised by a member of staff to start building a small portfolio of photographs before joining sixth form and doing A-level photography. He told me to take photos of household or strange objects and he said and i quote "stuff your gran wouldn't know of" and I was wondering if anybody could give me some advise. I tend to take photos using the macro option my camera has and I use wide angle alot. I use a Canon Powershot SX30is

    here is a sample: http://i748.photobucket.com/albums/xx121/JoshDixon4/005-1.jpg

    thanks,
    Josh

    Hi Josh, welcome to EPZ! As you are under 16 I'd especially like to welcome you to the Junior Section.

    It sounds like you have made a good start (although it is against our T&C's to link to images off site! Smile). Try uploading some of your images in your 'ePHOTOzine' portfolio and allow folk here to give you a few hints and tips. This site will also give you inspiration and ideas - any problems, don't be afraid to ask, someone on here will know the answer and be only too pleased to help.

    I'm looking forward to seeing some of your work! Smile

    Indeed it is, we have a gallery for you to put images in and for people to comment on them.
    I'll let the link stay this time as I'm in a mellow mood.

    Welcome Josh. You've certainly come to the right place for tips and ideas. I do mainly wildlife but love macro and all it's challenges, DOF being probably the greatest! As has been said, create a portfolio on the website so that we can all look at your efforts and make, hopefully, constructive comments.
    Good luck.

    Some ideas for you:
    Household abstracts

    Kitchen Utensils

    I have a few household bits in my gallery. If there's anything in there of interest i'll tell you how it was taken and what lighting was used.

    Hope that helps Smile

    Dont know much about it myself, but just a thought, it might be a good idea to go to a local charity shop,

    You will probably find atleast one abstract item
    It will probably be cheap
    It's for charity

    So there is three good reasons to give it a go Tongue Wink

    As you're quite young, I guess your teacher was referring to electronics? Circuit boards, close ups or LEDs, cases, heat syncs etc.
