Photography Challenge - Week 3

6th April - 13th April 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 thought it only appropriate, given that it’s Easter, that this week’s challenge should be eggs. Whether it’s chocolate eggs or chicken eggs, test your creativity and see what you can create this week. Remember, when shooting still life subjects such as this, lens choice is an important factor, as is the decision on what background and props to use. Think about the composition of your shot, what techniques could you use to guide the viewers eye? Colour is another factor that you could use this week. Experiment with different colour schemes to see what works — would a monochromatic scheme work, or perhaps complimentary colours create more impact. The best thing with still life subjects such as this is that you don’t have to worry about your subject moving or changing form, so make sure to use your time to the fullest.

If you’re looking for ideas or inspiration, below are a few classes that you may find useful.

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.
