Weekly Photography Assignment: Fur & Feather Details

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 44: Fur & Feather Details

Our theme this week is Fur & Feather Details. This week’s theme wants you to focus close-up on your subject. Well, not too close depending what it is! Show us the details in fur and feathers for your entry in this assignment.

Last Week’s Favourites

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

Photo by Jola Charlton

A lovely portrait of a deer in lovely light. The catchlight in the eye just brings it all together. Try to imagine the photo without it – a black eye – and that should help you to realise what dynamic a catchlight brings to a photo. Lovely bokeh and a nice sharp, crisp image that illustrates the theme perfectly. Well done!
