Photography Challenge - Week 6

5 February - 11 February

Photography challenges are a great way to develop your photography skills, learn new techniques and test your creativity. If you're looking for ideas and inspiration, we’ve got 52 weeks of photography challenges! 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...

Photographs of glass


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

Wine glasses, vases, ornaments or even readings glasses… Chances are you have at least some sort of glass laying around the house.

This week’s challenge will test your creativity, as well as your control of light. Glass can be a tricky subject to photograph, especially if you choose to photograph something clear. However, with this challenge comes a host of opportunity too. Before you start think carefully about the shot you want to create and consider your lighting, lens choice, colours, background and props.

  1. Hi. I am fairly new to KTE, wondered, how does one get their images in the weekly challenges? 🙂 or is there only a select few that get to go into the “album”

    1. Hi Jacqueline, thanks for being part of the platform. Anyone who is a member can enter the weekly challenges, briefs or competitions. There is usually an entry form on the particular blog page about each challenge, if you can’t find it please click on customer support in your home page and they will direct you. All the best Karl.

  2. Hello everybody ! Will Karl continue the reviews of the weekly challenges ? Have a good ay all.

    1. Hello Stef. Karl here, no not at the moment as we are very busy working on new content and the current live show line up. but I will be talking about some of the ‘Glass’ challenge shots briefly on todays live show and I will be throwing in a couple of extra live shows with further challenge critiques in the near future.

  3. Some brilliant images again, I have to say these challenges are a great distraction with a chance to try something new.

  4. Hi guys,
