Weekly Photography Assignment: Creative Imagery

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 156: Creative Imagery

Our theme this week is Creative Imagery and we’d love to see what creative and experimental nature photos you can come up with! This week, maybe you will experiment with long exposure to capture movement? Or perhaps you’ll use a macro lens to look for abstract patterns in the details of nature? Perhaps you will change your photos to black and white and increase the contrast to create dynamic, fine art style images? The options are endless, and we can’t wait to see what creative imagery you can take.

Here are some tutorials to help you:

Last week’s winner

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











This week’s winner is by Linda D. ‘This island and its reflection stood out on this misty pond, but the swan adds an interesting element to the story. It looks like it is heading to the island with a bit of trepidation.’ We love the misty, atmospheric tone of this image, and the use of negative space. Well done Linda!
