Weekly Photography Assignment: Bad Weather

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 144: Bad Weather

Our theme this week is Bad Weather, and as the seasons are changing, we’d love to see what photos you can create that captures any bad weather you experience this week. But then again – who is to say that storms or rain are ‘bad?’ They can lend themselves to fantastically dramatic images! Will you photograph a storm with turbulent clouds? Or maybe you will get creative with long exposure to capture a rainy day? Your photos can include animals or plants, or focus just on the sky or a landscape – anything to highlight or showcase a storm! 

Here are some tutorials to help you:

This week’s winner is by Louise with a photo taken at Sunrise in Waipu Cove New Zealand.  We love how the colours of the sky are reflecting in the waves. Well done Louise, for getting out at first light and capturing this moment!
