Just when you thought the COOPH team couldn't get more creative they share another top photography tutorial that's brimming with cool photoshoot ideas you can capture with your smartphone.


BBQ Photography


Three different smartphones are used to explore various creative techniques and to also demonstrate that the brand and model number don't really matter when it comes to capturing awesome shots with your smartphone. 

Up first is the theme 'BBQ' which is pretty self-explanatory but the video does explain the set-up in a much easier way than we could so hit 'play' to get instructions on this particular shoot.


Portrait from a container of cans


'Can Tunnel' is up next where a bin is surrounded by cans, the smartphone placed inside with a timer running and then someone poses over the top of the container with the cans stretching up and out to the sky. Another way the team create a frame for a portrait is with teeny-tiny rainbow beads which are placed in a glass container, space is cleared and the portrait is captured through it. They also put their hands into the beads which sit in water for a cool, abstract shot.

If you have a toy car, you can use flour, some colourful handheld lights and a long exposure setting to capture cool light patterns in your shots (the flour is used to create tyre marks) or why not have a play around with some UV paint and make your still life items glow in the dark?
