Weekly Photography Assignment: Green

Northern lights

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 7: Green

Our theme this week is Green. This is a bit of an open-ended theme to let your imagination run wild! Interpret the theme how you wish, maybe that’s the colour green or green energy working with nature.

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

Last Week’s Favourites

Here are our favourites from last week’s theme — Composition! View all the entries on our post.

Photo by Jim Palfrey

I really like the colour palette in Jim’s photo. The tree in the mid-ground pulls the eye into the image, and it has a feel of a painting to it.

Photo by John Kelly

I chose John’s image because of the clear effort to use a foreground effectively in the image. You can see how it instantly adds depth to the photo and makes it more three-dimensional. Without the foreground element, the shot would be much flatter.
