Weekly Photography Assignment: Cloning

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 18: Cloning

Our theme this week is Cloning. We’re doing things a little differently this week – it’s going to be a post production theme. For this, we want you to clone an object out of your photo – but make sure to upload a before and after photo of your adjustment!

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

Last Week’s Favourites

Here are two of our favourites from last week’s theme, Spring. You can view all of the entries here.

Photo by Char Ronster

A lovely and sharp ‘lambscape’ (ok, I have to give Char credit for the pun) which epitomises spring. The sky is gorgeous and the frost on the grass sets the tone nicely. The blacks are lost however, probably due to editing in an effort to pull back the colours in the sky. Perhaps try using gradual adjustments in light room in the absence of real filters in the field.

Photo by Alina Cristea

A lovely use of depth of field here to convey a huge expanse of two flowers that we signify with spring. Nice colours, and composition working with the rule of thirds!
