Photography Challenge - Week 32

6 August - 12 August

Photography challenges are the perfect opportunity to get outside your comfort zone and try something new. This is one of the best ways to develop new skills, explore new interests and grow as a photographer. We’ve got 52 weeks of photography challenges to help give you some ideas and kickstart your creativity. 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 them again or catch up on any that you missed. You can view the full list of challenges here.

This week's challenge is...

Diamond jewellery with blue sapphire on black background


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

Jewellery photography can be a challenging genre of photography, but when done right it can result in some stunning images.

Although it can be somewhat difficult to highlight important details or achieve sufficient depth of field when photographing tiny objects, this type of photography can also provide some great opportunities to experiment with creative backgrounds (you’ll see how you can easily design your own backgrounds and props using nothing more than paper card in our jewellery photography classes), try new lighting techniques, or refine important skills.

Whether you’re photographing watches, necklaces, rings or earrings, this week's challenge is the perfect opportunity to practice photographing these items and test your creativity.  Think about the purpose of you image and what you want to say with it, what background you're going to use and why, and how you're going to light it.

Below are a couple of classes that may provide some creative ideas and useful information.

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.
