Photography Challenge - Week 39

14th December - 21st December 2021

Are you looking for some photography ideas to test your skills and get your creativity flowing? Photography challenges are a great way to get out of your comfort zone and try new things. We’ve got 52 weeks of photography challenges to help inspire you. Achievable whether work with natural light or studio light, our weekly challenges are designed to encourage you to get creative, practise your skills and develop new techniques. 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...

Flat Lay Photography

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

Flat lay images are an incredibly popular type of photography at the moment. From cosmetic companies to restaurants, chances are you’ve seen at least one flat lay image in the last week.

These images, when done correctly, can be incredibly eye-catching. When not done correctly, however, they can appear flat and boring. Composition and lighting are two main elements that will help elevate your image and give it a professional quality — both of these are covered in more detail In our flat lay photography live workshop.

Whether you choose to refine your lighting techniques, or try something new and experiment with tilt-shift techniques, there’s a great amount of creative freedom this week. You might even come out of it with a new image for your portfolio!

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.
