Weekly Photography Assignment: Ducks

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 29: Ducks

Our theme this week is Ducks. Fairly common birds perhaps, but I want to see you get creative and create an image of a duck that is compelling.

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

Last Week’s Favourites

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

Photo by Gavin Marshall

When I started the theme, I didn’t expect to see much colour for ‘contrast’. However, Gavin has adhered to the theme with not just black and white contrasts, but the stark difference between the monochromatic colours of the foreground and this bright red and yellow leaf. A good attempt at close-focusing and use of depth of field to isolate the subject, with nice lighting highlighting the droplets underneath the leaf.
