Solid color themes bring more focus on the subject in photos.

Some of the brilliant blues could be red-love, bright yellow-cheerfulness, bold blue-sad, black-power, and baby pink-happiness.

Pairing these colors with a white outfit results in amazing shots. Every color has an emotion connected to it so the themes convey some emotional vibes though.

4. Aerial themed photography

Again a unique theme is here. The aerial theme is something with a different feel, a different vibe.

But aerial shots of everything don’t look so perfect. Some subjects fit perfectly for aerial shots.

Such as aerial shots of colorful flower fields using a drone.

In simple words, this theme he’s us capture the world from the view of a bird’s eye. This theme depicts the world in a different elegant and classic way.

5. Abstract theme

The abstract theme is kinda unique but it lacks a connection with the visual world. Though it has perfect shots to give based on color, texture, light, etc that imparts different expressions which are not worldly related.

The above themes are a must suggestion to try for. If something inspires your photos make it your subject theme.
