Photography Challenge - Week 46

1st February - 8th February 2022

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.

This week's challenge is...

Sunglasses with dramatic lighting on black background

How to get creative

With 45 weeks of challenges behind us, things aren’t getting any easier, and this week we’re challenging you to photograph sunglasses.

These reflective products, with their curved shapes and multi-textural surfaces, can be tricky to photograph, but the good news is that you don’t need to be a pro or have a lot of equipment to get good results.

If you have a good understanding of light, a couple of studio lights, a tripod, diffusion material, and some reflectors, then you’ll be able to do this week’s challenge.

Keep in mind the basics of product photography this week: analyse the product to determine the best features and shooting angle; choose the right lens (use extension tubes if you need to); fix your camera on a tripod; and use mirrors, reflectors or flags if you need additional lighting control.

Below are a few classes that may help with this week’s challenge.

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.
