Weekly Photography Assignment: Contrast

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 28: Contrast

Our theme this week is Contrast. Use the contrast between light and dark to create your image for this week’s assignment.

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

Last Week’s Favourites

Here are our favourite shots from last week’s theme! You can view all the entries here.

Photo by Maharjan Labish

I liked this image because of the vision behind it. By choosing to focus on raindrops on a window, the creativity in the image is clearly evident. If I were to improve it, though, I would choose a scene with a background that is clearly identifiable even whilst out of focus. The background should then add to the image and the story of the shot. Great work, though!

My other choice for this week is because of the composition. The hanging leaves on either side of the image frame it well – especially as they are not as obscured by the fog, so add some necessary colour and punch to the image. Without them, it would appear too washed out.
