Photography Challenge - Week 14

22nd June - 29th 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. Each topic is designed to be achievable whether you’re shooting at home or in a studio, use natural light or studio lights, have years of experience or just a few months. 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...

How to get creative

For this week’s topic, we’re challenging you to get creative with motion blur. You could photograph people, products, landscapes or even food — the only thing we ask is that there is a sense of motion in the image.

Key to this will be an understanding of shutter speed, and, if you’re using studio lights, the relationship between shutter speed, aperture and flash. Once you understand these, you’ll be able to more confidently focus on the creative side of the shoot. Planning and pre-visualisation, as usual, will help you think about and conceptualise your shot. You’ll be able to think about and determine your composition, lighting, background and props, and how you can bring everything together.

If you’re looking for ideas, the below may offer some inspiration. They also cover some important concepts that you’ll find useful for this particular 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.
