Weekly Photography Assignment: Landscapes

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 230: Landscapes

Our theme this week is Landscapes, and we’d love to see what creative images you can take of landscapes in nature! Landscapes are a common source of inspiration for photographers around the world. This week, try to look for new and unique compositions within your own familiar landscapes. Find new ways to shoot a place you’ve photographed before. Perhaps you will try long exposure techniques for the first time, or experiment with intentional camera movement. Maybe you will visit your chosen location at a time of day (or night) that you’ve never visited at before. Whether you’re a seasoned nature photographer, or are new to the genre, the options for awesome landscape photography 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 Fill the Frame – and our favourite image this week is:

This week’s winner is this image, captured by Pam Mullins: This is a stunning example of how fill the frame techniques can be used to highlight the character of an indiviual animal in wildlife photography: the all-encompassing image pulls us straight into the moment, and the direct eye contect is striking and asserts an immediate connection with the viewer. The photo is breathtakingly crisp; a fantastic moment frozen in time! Well done, and thank you to all who entered!
