Photography Challenge - Week 22

28 May - 3 June

Getting outside your comfort zone and experimenting with different subjects is one of the best ways to learn and develop new skills in photography. Our ongoing weekly photography challenges provide the perfect opportunity to do this, while also testing your creativity. We’ve got 52 weeks of photography challenges to help inspire you. 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...

Chair product photography


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

When last did you look at, really look at, the chair you sit on? An everyday object that we often overlook, their design and textures often make for very interesting subject material. But what’s the best way to go about highlighting the interesting details, various textures, and deliberate shapes?

For this challenge, you’ll need to carefully consider your lighting and background. The lighting will be key to showing off the shape and texture of the product, while the background choice will help ensure the product stands out. As with any shot, a little thought and planning will go a long way in helping you determine what you want to produce and how you’re going to achieve the desired result. The classes below may offer some information and guidance.

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.
