Weekly Photography Assignment: Movement

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 218: Movement

Our theme this week is Movement, and we’d love to see what creative images you can take of movement found in nature.  Perhaps you will use long exposure techniques on clouds or water to show movement over time. Maybe you will have a go at intentional camera movement to create movement within a static image. Perhaps you will use tracking techniques on a bird in flight and allow for some motion blur in the moevemnt of its wings. Whether you’re a seasoned nature photographer, or are new to the genre, the options for nature photos showcasing movement 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 Gardens – and our favourite image this week is:

This week’s winner is this image, captured by Eugene Bellau: “This picture is from the NOMA Sculpture Garden in the New Orleans City Park. The sculpture was created in Argentina by Leandro Erlich.” We love the decision to keep this whole frame in focus. The ladder creates a lovely leading line that invites our eye across the frame, and the bright and vibrant colours pop in constrast to one another. A beautiful capture. Well done, and thank you to all who entered!
