Photography Challenge - Week 24

11 June - 17 June

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

As you’ll see in the variety of classes that cover how to photograph bottles, bottles are a great subject to photograph if you want to test your skills.

This week, why not experiment with different lighting techniques. Gradient lighting, backlighting, and rim lighting are just a few of the ways you’ll have seen us light bottles on the site. Why not try out each of these to see which works best for your subject.

The angle of view is another way you can get creative. Try changing your perspective to see what impact it has on the mood and feel of the shot. This is something that was discussed in the review of our second ‘Working to a brief’ challenge.

Condensation is another way you could add another creative element to your shot, along with props, accessories, and different background choices.

Below are a few classes you may find useful if you’re looking for some inspiration this week.
