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

How to get creative

You use them for everything from brushing your teeth in the morning, to opening doors, making food and even taking your images — this week the focus of the challenge is hands. Be warned: hands can be particularly tricky subjects to photograph. Not only do you have to be careful about the positioning, particularly the arrangement of the fingers, you also have to carefully control your lighting.

You’ll find a number of classes on our site where hands form part of the image. In these classes Karl covers some of the common difficulties you may face and how to overcome these. If you’ve never photographed hands before, these may also provide you with some inspiration or ideas.

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.
