Weekly Photography Assignment: Clouds

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 139: Clouds

Our theme this week is Clouds. This week, we want you to think about how you can shoot clouds within your photographs. Can you capture any interesting cloud formations, or perhaps photograph their magnificent colours at sunrise or sunset? Or maybe you could play with long exposure to see if you can show the movement of clouds across the sky? You could even try to photograph clouds in the night sky!

Here are some tutorials to help you:

Last week’s winner

Last week’s theme was Bees – and our favourite image this week is:

This week’s winner is by George Mitchell. We love the way they caught the charisma of this bee, and went for a unique ‘portrait’ of an animal that we rarely get to see so close! Look at the size of those eyes!
