Weekly Photography Assignment: Fields

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 30: Fields

Our theme this week is Fields. Rolling hills, hay bales, or fields of flowers… Try and use composition techniques to make something a little more special.

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

Last Week’s Favourites

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

Photo by Char Ronster

Cute! I particularly loved the golden light in this image. It’s also really sharp, with a low viewing angle, adding some serious impact to the shot. The subject is isolated nicely with a wide aperture giving a beautiful bokeh around the mallard duckling. The warm tones compliment the colouration of the bird nicely.

Photo by Sharon Artley

I chose this image from Sharon because of the framing and composition. She’s done well to spot the opportunity for something more unusual, with the duck hidden from view behind the grasses. Crucially, its eye is clearly visible and unobscured by the grass. The orange bill showing through the gaps adds some necessary punch of colour, too.
