Photography Challenge - Week 6

27th April - 4th May 2021

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.

Below are a few useful links that you may want to refer to to help you for ideas and inspiration.

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.
