Photography Challenge - Week 35

27 August - 2 September

Our weekly photography challenges are designed to encourage you to try new things, and we’ve got 52 weeks of ideas to inspire you. Each topic is 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...

Portrait photography with shadows

Photography Equipment

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

Lenses, camera bags, filters… This week we’re challenging you to shoot your own photography equipment.

There’s no end to the range of products you could shoot, and there’s definitely no shortage of ways you could get creative. From pack shot-style images of your tripod to more stylised, moody images of your lens, why not use this week to try something new or refine a certain technique?

That’s not to say this week’s theme is without its challenges. You’ll likely have to deal with reflective surfaces, multiple textures and curved shapes. To help you overcome these challenges, take a look at the classes below for tips and 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.
