Weekly Photography Assignment: Animals in Habitats

Each week we’ll be giving 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 9: Animals in Habitats

Our theme this week is Animals in Habitats. We want you to show not just the subject, but the animal within a wider context. It may help to put down your telephoto lens for this assignment, and get out a wide-angle! You could even try camera trapping.

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