Look Around your Home
There is no need to spend hours preparing for a long drive each time you want to take some photos. Just open your eyes around you and look for something to photograph.
Keep an open mind, look for different angles and perspectives for your photo opportunities. Use light and darkness to bring out variations. Use height to further change the picture view, try down low or using a tripod or stand to get up higher.
Smartphone for Photos
Don't rely on having your expensive DSL camera around each time you want to take a photo? Get used to using your smartphone for many photography opportunities. You can always come back and try to get a better shot with your camera if it is that important but always have your smartphone on hand to take a photo when the chance arises.
Props for Photo Opportunities
Use props to bring our further variations. Things like materials can be used in your home for props. Maybe you can place a magnifying glass in front of the camera or smartphone to offer a zoomed in effect.
A TV running could be part of the background in a photo for example as another idea on finding props in your home. A blanket on your bed could be used for a background or a heater running in the background to give off an ambient color. These are more examples of finding every day photo opportunities and props in your home to use for your photography.
Training to Explore
The main thing is to broaden your outlook on finding everyday chances to take good photos. Learn to find an opportunity in the worst situations. For example try to find a really boring and plain room. Sit in the room with your camera and find as many photo opportunities as you can. Explore every little dimension and angle. After that you might find other places much easier to find photo opportunities.
