Weekly Photography Assignment: Look Up

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 131: Look Up

Our theme this week is Look Up. This week we’d like you to point your camera all the way up and towards the sky! You need to look for subjects that are already above you and your camera or ones that you are able to get below. Think creatively and outside the box as you experiment with this perspective. We can’t wait to see your photos! 

Here are some tutorials to help you:

To enter your photo to this assignment, add it in the comments below this post. By submitting your photo, you are giving us permission to feature your photo the following week if it is chosen as one of our favourites. Please keep images under 2MB in size otherwise you may have difficulty uploading them.

Last Week’s Favourite

Here is our favourite submission from last week’s theme, Green. You can view all of the entries here.

This week’s winning photo is by Marije Rademaker. Marije has done well to find a green subject within a green setting! By getting down to the same level as the grasshopper, Marije has taken us into its world, and has captured the grasshoppers’ curious personality. Well done!
