Photography Challenge - Week 13

15th June - 22nd June 2021

As we continue with our weekly challenges, it's never too late to get involved. Designed to help you develop and practice your photography skills these challenges are a great way to practice important techniques, try something new and connect with other members also taking part. We’ve got 52 weeks of photography challenges to help inspire you. 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

Cosmetics Close-Ups

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

If you watch any of our product photography classes, you’ll soon see there are a few key considerations that will help you photograph cosmetics.

Background choice, lighting and styling are important aspects of any shoot, and cosmetics are no different. With this challenge, depth of field will be a further factor you’ll have to consider. Working close up to small products like cosmetics may mean you struggle with getting sufficient depth of field, which means you may have to consider focus stacking. Think about all of this before you start shooting — pre-visualise and plan your shot to maximise your chances of a smooth and successful shoot.

Below are a few recommended classes that you may find useful.

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.
