Weekly Photography Assignment: Garden Wildlife

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 146: Garden Wildlife

Our theme this week is Garden Wildlife, and we’d love to see what wildlife you can photograph in your very own garden, or on your doorstep if you don’t have a garden! Will you capture a bird in flight, about to land on a bird feeder? Or perhaps you will try your hand at macro with an insect on your plants? Or maybe you will find a mammal in the last light of the evening – possibly one you never knew even lived in your garden!

Here are some tutorials to help you:

Last week’s winner

Last week’s theme was Signs of Autumn – and our favourite image this week is:
















This week’s winner is by Kynzie Ware with this image titled ‘Autumn Leaves,’ shot on their Canon EOS 350D.  Great shot Kynzie! We love how the colours of autumn are just beginning to take over the leaf in focus. The bokeh background really compliments the overall mood and tone of the photograph too!
