If you’ve missed any of the previous challenges, you can view them all here.
This week's challenge is...
How to get creative
This week we’re challenging you to get out with your camera (and maybe your comfort zone) for some street photography!
A genre many may be familiar with, street photography is a great way to get out and capture the people and places around you. While street photography is often considered to be spontaneous, and more about ‘capturing’ than ‘creating’, there’s nothing stopping you from making the perfect shot. Look out for interesting places or features of interest, think about when the light might be best, and then wait for the perfect moment.
Lighting and composition are a big part of street photography, so it’s worth keeping in mind composition techniques such as framing, colour, leading lines, etc and thinking about when the light will be best in that particular area (or you could even set up a shot and introduce some of your own light for greater control).
Before you head out, make sure to think about lens choice and what other equipment you’ll need. You don’t want to get caught out with the wrong equipment!
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.
