3D Summer Photography Ideas
There’s no question that summer is the ideal season for photographers. With perfect weather and long hours of daylight, there are so many opportunities to explore and experiment with photography ideas. If you’re looking to master a new photography technique this summer, we recommend learning how to master 3D photography with LucidPix! To help you get started, here is a collection of the most double-tap-worthy 3D summer photography ideas that you’ll want to add to your must-capture list this season.
Still Life Photography
Taking photos of still life is a great way to practice your photography skills, as there are so many photographic opportunities around you. Even with items you have lying at home, you can easily set up an arrangement of flowers, fruits, drinks, and other summer decor. The beauty of summer is that you can either take your still life photos inside your home, or even outside in your backyard! Additionally, taking your still life photos in 3D will bring a unique perspective and movement to your photos that will allow you to bring the season to life.
Summer Food Photography
If there is one thing that summer is known for, it is all the delicious treats you can eat during the season! From fruits like mango and strawberries, to frozen desserts such as popsicles or slushie drinks, summer offers a variety of colorful treats. Not only do these treats satisfy your cravings, but they can serve as great subjects for your 3D photos!
So gather up your favorite summer treats and head out for a socially distant picnic in your local park or backyard. Set up your food and drinks against the backdrop of a picnic blanket or green grass and capture your 3D photos. Read our blog post or watch our YouTube video to learn how to create amazing food photos in 3D.
Outdoor Summer Photography
With the extended hours of daylight during summer comes more opportunities to spend time outdoors and capture photos. Summer is the perfect time to take advantage of the great weather and go hiking or camping at a nearby state park. We definitely recommend heading outdoors early in the morning or in the evening to capture the vivid colors of the sunrise and sunset.
In addition to getting the soft warm lighting during the golden hour, you can also stay out for longer to capture your photos during blue hour, which is the period of twilight when the sun is below the horizon and the sky takes on a deep blue shade.

Another genre of photography that is perfect for the summer, water photography is a great way to learn new photography techniques. Head out to your backyard pool, the beach, or a nearby lake and capture the refractive surfaces of water as the sunlight passes through the waves of water. You can also step out of your comfort zone and capture your photos underwater as well! Just make sure to purchase a waterproof camera or phone case first!
One neat summer photography idea for capturing moving water is to take long exposure photos. Long exposure photos will help you create the soft, flowing effect of moving water in your photos, and converting these photos to 3D will make it seem like the water in your photos is gliding through the screen!
