Photography Challenge - Week 48
16th February - 23rd February 2021
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 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
Guitars, pianos, drums, trumpets — this week’s challenge is all about musical instruments.
From close-up detail shots to creative still life arrangements, there’s a number of directions you could go with this challenge.
The key thing to keep in mind is the shape and form of the object. Before you start shooting, take the time to really look at the subject — consider its textures, its curves, lines, and angles.
Next, think about the mood you want to create and what you want to do with the image. Are you looking for a descriptive product shot or something more emotional and abstract?
Or, if photographing products really isn’t your thing, you could consider a portrait of a musician with their instrument (though keep in mind the focus of the theme for this week is instruments, not people). Tom Oldham's live talk show replay might provide some inspiration for this idea.
Below are a few classes that may provide some inspiration and guidance.
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.
