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 190: Flowers
Our theme this week is Flowers, and we’d love to see what creative images of flowers you can create! This week we’d like to encourage you to try to capture the beauty of flowers. They can be found in many places and photographed in so many ways…perhaps you will use a macro lens to photograph tiny details, or get low down for an unusual perspective, or choose to photograph them in the early morning or late evening to get that special golden hour lighting. Whether you’re a seasoned nature photographer, or a total newbie, the options for beautiful flower photos are endless, and we can’t wait to see what inspiring images you can create.
Here are some tutorials to help you:

Last week’s winner
Last week’s theme was The Colour Yellow – and our favourite image this week is:
This week’s winner is this image, captured by Peter Welch who ‘tried to capture the tones of yellow and textures in this shot.’ We love the extra-wide crop of this image, and the range of yellow tones that have been captured and highlighted here. The allowing of slight blur in the depth of field creates a unique and creative image of a well known subject. Well done, and thank you to all who entered!
