Weekly Photography Assignment: Black & White

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 20: Black & White

Our theme this week is Black & White.

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

Last Week’s Favourites

Here are our favourites from last week’s theme: Reflections. You can view the rest of the submissions here.

Bob Pietrowski warthog
Photo by Bob Pietrowski

This image of a warthog at dusk is nice and crisp, with some interesting lighting and, of course, a reflection. The high contrast made it stand out amongst the entries. Perhaps a little more space beneath the head in the reflected part would be nice, but great job!

Photo by Nirav Pomal

I just had to select this photo as a favourite from last week because of the creativity shown by Nirav in this image. The shapes you see are grasses in water, protruding and forming letter-style shapes with the reflections. It’s a great abstract reflection – I love it.
