Photography Challenge - Week 18
20th July - 27th July 2021
Our ongoing weekly photography challenges are a great way to develop your photography skills, learn new techniques and test your creativity. 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
This week’s challenge is all about portraiture, specifically moody portraiture. If you’ve been feeling angry, frustrated, confused or even sad during the recent months, this should be the perfect opportunity to express yourself through photography!
Mood and emotion are key to this week’s challenge, and we have some great classes covering the concept of emotion in photography as well as portrait lighting setup ideas. Remember to carefully consider your background and lighting when creating the images, and of course the expression of your model. You’ll find more information to help guide you and offer inspiration in the recommended classes below.
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.
