Weekly Photography Assignment: Flight

understanding autofocus modes

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 16: Flight

Our theme this week is Flight. Take your photography to the skies and capture anything this theme encompasses. That isn’t necessarily just birds in flight: try looking at flying insects too, or maybe incorporate a flying bird into a landscape shot.

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