Weekly Photography Assignment: Layers

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 190: Layers

Our theme this week is Layers. For this challenge, we want you to look for layers in nature and create photos that show them off! It could be layers of hills in a landscape, layers of leaves in a tree, or layered feathers on a bird (if you can get that close!). See what you can find. We can’t wait to see your photos! 

Here are some tutorials to help you:

Last week’s winner

Last week’s theme was The Golden Hour – and our favourite image this week is:

We couldn’t choose between these 2 this week! Tim J Nicol these shots of a Hummingbird in the golden hour, taken in Republic, WA. We love the composition of the first shot, and the sharpness of the action in the second – a challenge at any time of day, but especially in low light! Well done Tim.
