Photography Challenge - Week 19
27th July - 3rd August 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
We’re giving you a real challenge this week — watch photography! Notoriously tricky subjects to photograph, shooting watches often requires precision as well as patience. The good news, though, is that they don’t always require as much equipment as you might initially think. Even if you only have one light, you can create stunning watch photography if you understand light and how to control it.
In addition to your lighting, you’ll have to think about what background you use, your choice of props (if any), composition, camera settings, and lens choice. With product photography like this, the aim is always to ensure the product is the hero. For more tips and ideas, take a look at some of the watch photography classes below or take a look at our other product photography classes.
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.
