If you're looking for an inexpensive way to have a bit of fun with photography while still capturing interesting photos, the COOPH team may just have the tutorial for you.

We've seen the creative COOPH team take everyday objects you can find them in your home and use them as a tool for photography quite a few times but this is the first time they're putting the umbrella to good use. 

Tips include playing around with coloured smoke bombs (be careful if you try this), turning it into a DIY light source, creating shadow shapes for interesting portraits, bouncing light and creating overhead patterns (you'll need a drone for this one). 

What creative portraits have you captured? You can share them with us in the Gallery
