Weekly Photography Assignment: Motion

After having a great response to the idea on our Facebook group, we’re pleased to bring you the first in a series of weekly photography assignments!

Each week we’ll give you a theme that you can submit a photo for, and we’ll choose our two favourites to be featured on the Nature TTL website. Participating in these assignments will be a great way for you to force yourself to push the boundaries of your photography and improve together as a community on the website.

Week 1 Theme: Motion

Our theme this week is motion – that means all things moving, of course! This is a great time of year for those in the UK especially, where we have huge starling murmurations throughout the winter.

For some guidance, have a read of the following tutorials:

Here are some guidelines to keep things running smoothly:

  • Photos must be your own work
  • Please enter no more than 3 photos per week
  • Please only enter photos taken within the week of the assignment
  • Include a description with your photo and tell us a bit about it!

You have until next Tuesday, 29th November, to submit your photo.


Here are some photos to get you in the mood for our theme this week!
