  • Use a zoom lens to isolate part of a scene in the city or countryside.
  • Use a slow shutter to blur a moving object.
  • Move your camera around while taking a photo to blur the scene (intentional camera movement or ICM).
  • Take a photo of a reflection in water or glass to distort the image.
  • Take photos from unusual angles or viewpoints.
  • Take a photo slightly out of focus.
  • Use multiple exposures.
  • Use your editing software to crop an existing photo.
  • Use your editing software to artificially distort the colours.
