Weekly Photography Assignment: Night
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 158: Night
Our theme this week is Night and we’d love to see what creative nature images you can take at night! Perhaps you will photograph plants under torch light? Maybe you will experiment with long exposure to capture the stars? Or perhaps you’ll use the moon to backlight a subject like a bird in a tree? The options are endless, and we can’t wait to see what creative nighttime nature photos you can take.
Here are some tutorials to help you:
- Astrophotography on a Budget: Shooting the Night Sky
- How to Photograph Wildlife in Low Light
- How to Photograph the Moon: An In-depth Guide
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.
Here are some guidelines to keep things running smoothly:
- Photos must be your own work
- Please enter no more than 3 photos per week
- Please only enter photos taken within the week of the assignment
- Include a description with your photo and tell us a bit about it!
You have until next Monday, 24th January, to submit your photo.
Last week’s winner
Last week’s theme was Animal Portraits – and our favourite image this week is:
This week’s winner is by Jorge Russo with ”Junior and Mother.” We love how the focus and framing of this portrait draws our eyes towards the engaging subject matter of the young monkey’s face. Emotion and expression have been captured in this pose, as well as active behaviors. Well done Jorge, and thank you to all who entered for the amazing images this week!
