Photography Challenge - Week 15

29th June - 6th July 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. Due to popular demand, we’re continuing our photography challenges if you want to try something new or catch up on any that you missed. Specifically designed to be achievable whether you’re at home or have access to a studio, these photography challenges are a great way to develop your photography skills, learn new techniques and test your creativity. You can view the full list of challenges here.

Black & White Flowers

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

Flowers are the theme for this week’s challenge, but not just any flowers — specifically, black and white flowers. This challenge will not only test your photographic skills, but also your post-production skills.

While flowers may not be the most difficult of subjects, the more challenging aspect this week may  be the post-production element, as creating eye-catching black and white imagery isn’t always as easy as it may sound. All too often, converting images to black and white can result in flat, boring photographs. To help you with this, you’ll find some suggested classes below to help you get the best results possible.

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.

  1. Ashleigh,

    I am new to KTE. What is the end result of the challenge? Will there be some discussion of the images by Karl and if so where do we see that? Or are the images just for us to enjoy? So many beautiful ones!

  2. I’m having a bit of a hard time actually using Facebook. It is like an a whole new OS, (operating system). I wonder if KTE could give tutorials on the various social websites?

  3. I just joined the group. I am on Facebook but don’t know how to post a picture for the weekly challenge – help please.

  4. Karl,
    In my case I don’t use facebook, I only use instagram. There is a group on Instagram where these photos can be uploaded.

    The challenge seems interesting to me.

    Greetings,
