Photography Challenge - Week 13

16th June - 23rd June 2020

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.

This week's challenge is...

Portrait photography with shadows

Cosmetics Close-Ups

Upload your image to our members Facebook group using the hashtag #KTEWeeklyChallenge.

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.
