Weekly Photography Assignment: Atmosphere
Each week we’ll be giving you a theme that you can submit a photo for, and we’ll choose our favourite 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 159: Atmosphere
Our theme this week is Atmosphere. For this week’s assignment, we want you to focus on the feelings evoked by your photos. Look for different types of lighting, for example soft or dramatic, that could add a certain mood to your photo.
Here are some tutorials to help you:
- How to Use Mist to Improve Your Landscape Photos

Last Week’s Favourite
Here is our favourite submission from last week’s theme, Bokeh. You can view all of the entries here.
This week our winning image is by George Mitchell, who photographed this Araneus diadematus in the UK. While the Bokeh is a key part of this image, it does not distract from the main subject. Instead, it compliments it, giving the photo a certain gentleness that is not often associated with spiders. The background is dark enough in places so as to not lose the detail of the intricate web, and the close crop really takes you into the spider’s world. Excellent work George!
