Photography Challenge - Week 43

11th January - 18th January 2022

If you’re looking to try new things and improve your photography, why not get involved in our weekly challenges? We’ve got 52 weeks of photography challenges to help inspire you. 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. We started posting these 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

Composition is an integral part of photography. From the rule of thirds to leading lines or framing, there are many techniques that will help guide you in taking better photos.

Symmetry is a technique that some photographers may frown upon, but it can be a great way to minimise distractions and focus the viewer's attention. This week we’re challenging you to focus on deliberately creating symmetrical images, whether you’re photographing people, animals or products.

Think about how you can incorporate symmetry in interesting, eye-catching ways. Colour can be a good way to liven up an image, as are highlights and shadows. Below are a few informational classes and interesting ideas that may provide some inspiration this week. You may also enjoy my Youtube video where I discuss the most important composition rule nobody ever tells you.

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.
