If you’re looking to try new things and improve your photography, why not get involved in our weekly challenges? Achievable whether you work with natural light or studio light, our weekly challenges are designed to encourage you to get creative, practice 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
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.
