(1) He was fishing from a raft.

(2) He was fishing from a bridge.

Are these sentences correct?

Yep. You stand or sit on it (whether it is a bridge, the shore, a boat, a raft) and cast your line or net out into the water. You fish from the bridge - that is the origin of the action.

Like in the current situation people have been forced to work from home, and if you are shopping online you can shop from your bedroom. With a zoom lens on your camera you take pictures from a distance.

I do not know, is it the way like, if from the stationary object, then 'from' but if from the movable object, then 'on'?

Show us the picture and we'll let you know.

The only difference is the location, so only you can know which is correct. But you asked if "these" are correct. Context is king.
