Photography Challenge - Week 9
19th May - 26th May
Photography challenges are a great way to develop your photography skills, learn new techniques and test your creativity. Why not get involved in this week’s challenge and try something new? Each challenge has been designed to encourage members to continue their photography while trying new things, practicing different techniques and flexing their creativity.
This week's challenge is...
How to get creative
Something we use every day, cutlery is a popular subject for still life photography. Not only are these common household utensils a great item to get creative with, but they’ll also really test your understanding and control of light. From antique knives and forks to modern serving spoons, there’s no shortage of things you could use, which means there’s no excuse not to push your creativity to the limit. With such simple objects, however, lighting and composition are key. Make sure to carefully consider each of these when you plan your shot. What might seem like ‘little details’, can actually make a big difference.
Below are a few suggested classes that you may find useful to help you with this week’s challenge. You may also find the Still Life, Rim & Precise Lighting How To video on our Youtube channel inspiring.
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).
