Photography Challenge - Week 25

7th September - 14th September 2021

From pet photography to bottle product shots, our ongoing weekly challenges allow members to explore different subjects and test their skills while connecting with fellow photographers. 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...

How to get creative

If you ever needed an excuse to get messy for the sake of art, this week’s challenge is it!

This week we’re challenging you to see what you can create for splash photography. Whether it be water or paint, people or products, we want to see what you come up with.

There are many ways you can get creative with this week’s theme, as you’ll see in the variety of splash photography classes we have on the site.

Key to capturing these fast-moving shots is a fast flash duration. This will ensure any movement is perfectly frozen. Choosing the right focus point will also help you get the best result. If you don’t have a fixed object, think about where you want the focus point to be and use a stand-in object to fix your focus point. Finally, think carefully about your lighting and how you can enhance the texture of the liquid.

To learn how to photograph different liquid splash shots, take a look at a selection of our popular splash photography 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.
