Wind can be a good friend for photographers. It gives shots a sense of motion and creates amazing effects: it «sculpts», frames and draws the composition.
Some objects are suitable for this kind of photos, because they are designed to being moved by wind and airflows. For instance, flags, pinwheels, windsocks, wind direction indicators, etc.
If you want to get more dramatic or creative, original images, you can play with postproduction and take advantage of the blurring effect, naturally achieved when you took the picture.
Nature offers interesting hints: the wind can sculpt and draw landscapes or natural items, such as large fields, meadows, plants, flowers, etc.
Trees, flowers and plants warp and lean, taking dynamics, unusual positions. They create strong contrasts between the background, the fixed objects and the natural elements moved and shaken by the air.
Images can seem static. The atmosphere seems fixed and suspended in time, but the sense of motion is given by the objects theirselves: they can reach that disposition only when the wind blows. The kites are one of the most common examples.
Light and soft textiles are easily lifted and moved. You can use clothes, beach towels, parasols, curtains, etc.
People also are good subjects to communicate the presence of the wind. The movements are transmitted through the hair, clothes and other accessories.
Animals are funny and original ways to show the air effects: their fur is light and suitable for capturing the power of the breeze. Not just the fur, even the tail and the ears offer enjoyable ideas to take creative pictures.
The paper: books, newspapers, magazines, scores, notebooks, etc. are typical items which clearly display where the air currents come from and how strongly they are blowing.
We can’t forget the typical objects which can’t exist without the wind: of course, the sailboats, hang-gliders and hot air balloons.
Show your abilities and imagination: try taking pictures where the breeze is the main characterizing element.
