Weekly Photography Assignment: Mammals

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 110: Mammals

Our theme this week is Mammals. There are only around 5400 species of mammal across the world, which is less than birds, fish and even reptiles. They come in all shapes and sizes and with a range of interesting behaviours. Get out there and show us what mammals you can find! 

Here are some tutorials to help you:

Last Week’s Favourite

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

Photo by Martin Dodd

This week’s winner is Martin Dodd with this image of two Kingfishers. In this photo, Martin has tried for a not-so-typical composition. By placing the two focal points of the image in opposite corners, he has created something more unusual. Well done Martin!
