Photography Challenge - Week 36

3 September - 9 September

One of the best ways to get creative with photography is to get out and try new things. Our weekly photography challenges are designed to encourage you to try new things and 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...

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

Rim lighting is a commonly used photography lighting technique, useful for everything from portraits to product photography.

This week we’re giving you the freedom to photograph any subject, as long as there’s a clear element of rim lighting. Remember, rim lighting could be subtle, perhaps for portraiture, or it could be more obvious, for product photography. This week it’s all up to you! 🙂 

There are a number of classes throughout the site where you’ll see examples of how to use rim lighting, a few of which are included below to offer some guidance and inspiration.
