Photography Challenge - Week 41
29th December 2020 - 5th January 2021
Photography challenges are a great way to get out of your comfort zone and try new things. Achievable whether you 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. If you’ve missed any of the previous challenges, you can view them all here.
This week's challenge is...
How to get creative
It’s time to dust off those old football boots and dig out those unused dumbbells — this week it’s all about sports equipment.
Whether you’re shooting an advertising-style product image or more artistic still life image, this week there’s plenty of ways to get creative. Whatever your choice of subject, we’d recommend taking a look at our sports equipment course for a few useful tips and techniques.
Our Specialized racing bike shoot is an example of how you can create classic images of modern day products. Or, if you’re feeling more daring, you could show the product in use, as we did with our tennis racket shoot, where we used a laser flash trigger to capture the flying tennis ball.
Whatever you choose to shoot and however you choose to shoot it, this week is a great opportunity to try new techniques and refine your existing skills.
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.
