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:
- How to Make a ‘Boring’ Bird Interesting
- How to Photograph Flocks of Birds
- 7 Advanced Techniques to Improve Your Wildlife Photos
- How to Take Impacting Portraits of Wildlife
Submit Your Photo
To enter your photo to this assignment, add it in the comments below this post. By submitting your photo, you are giving us permission to feature your photo the following week if it is chosen as one of our favourites.
Here are some guidelines to keep things running smoothly:
- Photos must be your own work
- Please enter no more than 3 photos per week
- Please only enter photos taken within the week of the assignment
- Include a description with your photo and tell us a bit about it!
You have until next Tuesday, 13th June, to submit your photo.
Last Week’s Favourites
Here are our favourite shots from last week’s theme: Contrast! You can view all the entries here.
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.
