    1. No more grey winter

    We love spring because everything turns green and blossoms again. The first blades of grass and flowers shoot out of the ground and we’re once again woken daily by the birds’ twittering. A new breath of life is breathed into nature once again! This makes it the perfect time to go outside and capture this awakening of new life in photos.

    2. A discovery tour

    There are finally things to discover again: happy people in the streets, in cafes, walking with their four-legged friends. In winter, people stay holed up at home. Who wants to venture out of the house when it’s freezing cold outside? Now it’s the exact opposite: the sun smiles down on our faces and we literally soak it up. As the city comes to life again, there are great motifs for moments we want to capture.

    3. Good vibes

    People are simply in a better mood again – this affects our photo motifs as well! Smiling faces and bright-eyed children are some of the most beautiful. You can read more about how to take brilliant portraits here.

    4. Ice cream!

    Okay, we don’t actually have to say anything else here; who doesn’t love letting this lovely, cooling dessert, which seems to be available in thousands of variations, melt in their mouth? As the temperatures rise, so does the desire for this tasty treat. Also, this colourful dessert makes a brilliant summery motif.

    5. Express yourself – fashion styles

    Street-style photographers in particular love it when people can use fashion to express themselves. Personal taste and how you’re feeling on any given day translate into creative outfits that can be shown off with flair. While functionality tends to dominate fashion choices in the winter so you don’t end up shivering in the cold outside, spring comes along and puts an end to this. It’s time to let loose!

    6. Colourful famers’ markets

    Fresh, crunchy vegetables and a wide variety of fruits and berries are available once again. This results in brilliant food photos! Simply try it out for yourself: meander through the local famers’ market and take close-up photos of flowers, fruits, and vegetables. Sound boring? Then maybe first read our article on macro photography and get inspired!

    7. Everything’s in bloom

    Cherry and apple blossoms make brilliant motifs for spring photos. Such photos can appear especially attractive if you photograph in the mountains, where a bit of snow might still be lying around: shoot the spring blossoms in the foreground with a bit of snow visible in the background.

    8. Green as far as the eye can see

    Vast landscapes flourish in lush green tones. After the dull and monotonous winter, this kind of landscape is great for a change of pace and makes the perfect spring motif.

    9. Close-ups of nature

    You can take great close-ups of nature, birds, and insects. Spring also brings along with it the advantage that’s it’s still a bit cooler in the mornings. This means there won’t yet be any strong winds due to solar radiation and animals will need a bit more time to awaken from their slumber. This is the perfect time to take macro shots when everything is standing still.

    10. Newborn animals

    As far as the eye can see, animals are no longer out and about on their own. Whether it’s a couple or maybe even a small family, baby animals can make your photos that much more special. Ducks, birds, and insects can be particularly well observed in the vicinity of water. Mating season is underway.

    Elegantly display your most favourite spring impressions with an ifolor wall decoration in your home. As a multi-panel display or in another format of your choice, you can bring the fresh spring atmosphere right into your home.

    In closing:

    Spring is the perfect time of year for anyone who loves to photograph life and nature. Don’t let the chance slip away!
