Weekly Photography Assignment: Flowers
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 encourage yourself to push the boundaries of your photography and improve together as a community on the website.
Week 173: Flowers
Our theme this week is Flowers and we’d love to see what creative flower photos you can create! Flowers are a fabulous subject to practice your nature photography on, whatever time of year it is. You could choose to focus on the details and shoot with a macro lens, or take a wider landscape shot that incorporates flowers, or perhaps get creative and try using unusual backgrounds or lighting to make your flower images really pop… the options are endless, and we can’t wait to see what inspiring flower photos you can create.
Here are some tutorials to help you:

Last week’s winner
Last week’s theme was Macro – and our favourite image this week is:
This week’s winner is this image, captured by Mácsai Krisztina. We love the composition and colours in this photo. Our eye is drawn straight to the spider as it enters the frame, with the rule of thirds effectively being used. The soft gradient background and leaf skeleton help to accentuate the features and colours of the spider by contrasting a dark subject with a light background. Well done, and thank you to all who entered!
