Photography Challenge - Week 7
4th May - 11th May 2021
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...
How to get creative
Technology — it’s everywhere. From watches that remind us to move to temperature-controlled coffee mugs, technology has become an integral part of our daily lives. For this week’s challenge we’d like to see your technology photos. With such a wide variety of objects to choose from, the creative possibilities are endless. Remember to think about the product: assess what the best angle is to shoot it from; think about the different surface textures and how best to light them and consider what background to use. This is also a great opportunity to practice your post-production skills as product photos often require at least some level of retouching. As usual, we can’t wait to see what you come up with!
To help you get started, here are a few classes that you can use for inspiration and ideas.
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.
