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.

How to get creative

This week we’re challenging you to get out with your camera (and maybe your comfort zone) for some street photography!

A genre many may be familiar with, street photography is a great way to get out and capture the people and places around you. While street photography is often considered to be spontaneous, and more about ‘capturing’ than ‘creating’, there’s nothing stopping you from making the perfect shot. Look out for interesting places or features of interest, think about when the light might be best, and then wait for the perfect moment.

Lighting and composition are a big part of street photography, so it’s worth keeping in mind composition techniques such as framing, colour, leading lines, etc and thinking about when the light will be best in that particular area (or you could even set up a shot and introduce some of your own light for greater control).

Before you head out, make sure to think about lens choice and what other equipment you’ll need. You don’t want to get caught out with the wrong equipment!
