Photography Challenge - Week 10
26th May - 2nd June 2020
Photography challenges are a great way to develop your photography skills, learn new techniques and test your creativity. This week’s challenge may be particularly challenging for some of you, but it really will offer a great way put some new-found skills into practice, experiment with new ideas and really unleash your creative ideas.
This week's challenge is...
How to get creative
As photographers, many of us prefer being behind the camera, which is why, for some of you, this week’s challenge may be the hardest one yet. But don’t be put off — this challenge will provide a great learning experience (and at the end of it you may even walk away with a great new photo for your website or social media!).
Before you start, think about what you want to say with your portrait. Do you want a realistic self portrait, or something more artistic and expressive? Perhaps a faceless portrait could even be an option?
Think about what background you’ll use, and whether you’ll need any props. What type of lighting will work best, and how will you style the shot? These are things you should have been thinking about for each our previous challenges, so it’s nothing new. But this week you’ll also face the challenge of focusing, lighting and posing — simple things that become a lot harder when you can’t see the image until you’ve shot it! So work carefully, be patient and try to think outside the box!
Below are a few classes that you might find useful for this week's challenge.
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...

- 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.
