Photography Challenge - Week 10

25th May - 1st June 2021

Are you looking for some photography ideas to test your skills and get your creativity flowing? We’ve got 52 weeks of photography challenges to help inspire you.  This week’s challenge may be particularly challenging for some of you, but it really will offer a great way to put some new-found skills into practice, experiment with new ideas and really unleash your creative ideas. We started posting weekly challenges more than a year ago and they’ve been so popular we thought we’d continue to run them if you want to try something new or catch up on any that you missed. You can view the full list of challenges here.

This week's challenge is...

Portrait photography with shadows

Self Portrait

Upload your image to our members Facebook group using the hashtag #KTEWeeklyChallenge or tag us on Instagram, where we’ll share some of our favourites on our stories each week.

How to get creative

As photographers, many of us prefer being behind the camera, which is why, for some of you, this week’s challenge may be the hardest one yet. But don’t be put off — this challenge will provide a great learning experience (and at the end of it you may even walk away with a great new photo for your website or social media!).

Before you start, think about what you want to say with your portrait. Do you want a realistic self portrait, or something more artistic and expressive? Perhaps a faceless portrait could even be an option?

Think about what background you’ll use, and whether you’ll need any props. What type of lighting will work best, and how will you style the shot? These are things you should have been thinking about for each our previous challenges, so it’s nothing new. But this week you’ll also face the challenge of focusing, lighting and posing — simple things that become a lot harder when you can’t see the image until you’ve shot it! So work carefully, be patient and try to think outside the box!

Below are a few classes that you might find useful for this week's challenge.

About the challenge

We’d love for all our members to get involved in our weekly challenges, but to ensure everyone gets maximum benefit from these, there are a few guidelines...

  • Members can submit any one image (taken at any time) for the challenge but in the spirit of the challenge we encourage you to post images taken during the week. A second image can be uploaded to show this (i.e with your phone in shot with the date showing).
  • All images submitted to our Facebook group will be displayed in a members gallery on Karl Taylor Education.
  • Images should be 2000px on the longest side.

Keep an eye on our Facebook page, exclusive members group and Instagram stories for the latest challenge. Share your images in our exclusive members Facebook group to feature in our weekly galleries on Karl Taylor Education or share your images on Instagram with the hashtag #KTEWeeklyChallenge and we’ll share some of our favourites on our stories each week.
