Photography Challenge - Week 47

19 November - 25 November

It's easy to feel stuck with your photography, so photography challenges are a great way to kickstart your creativity. If you’re looking to try new things and improve your photography, our weekly challenges are achievable whether you work with natural light or studio light and we’ve got 52 weeks of ideas for you to try! 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...

Portrait photography with shadows


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

Textures and patterns are all around us — in our homes, in nature, in the food we eat, and the products we use.

They can also be both natural and man-made, so if you can’t get out with your camera, look around for what you can find, or make, at home.

Lighting is key when it comes to revealing textures, so this week could be the perfect time to brush up on your lighting theory.

Composition and depth of field are also important considerations; think about what elements you can use to enhance the image and what aperture will work best. Take the time to think about what you’re shooting, what works, and what doesn't. This week might seem like it’s an ‘easy’ challenge, but don’t be fooled.
