Weekly Photography Assignment: Flight

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 152: Flight

Our theme this week is Flight. Photographing something in flight can be amongst the most challenging photographic tasks you undertake, but it comes with big rewards. We are looking for wildlife in flight, it can be a bird, insect, mammal or even fish, as long as its flying we want to see it. Show us what you can find!

Here are some tutorials to help you:

Last Week’s Favourite

Here is our favourite submission from last week’s theme, The Night Sky. You can view all of the entries here.

This week our winning image is by Stephen Mathew Cowen. Stephen says: “On a cloudy evening last Wednesday I managed to capture this image of the full moon when there was a fortunate break in the clouds which only appeared for about 1 minute, then the rest of the night remained cloudy”. Well done!
