Weekly Photography Assignment: Night Sky

Each week we’ll be giving you a theme that you can submit a photo for, and we’ll choose our two favourites 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 41: Night Sky

Our theme this week is Night Sky. With the upcoming eclipse (visible in North America) and recent meteor showers, we couldn’t resist making the night sky this week’s theme. Wherever you are in the world, point your lens to the sky and capture something astronomical.

Here are some tutorials to help you out:

Last Week’s Favourites

Here are our favourite shots from last week’s theme: Forest! You can view all the entries here.

Photo by Martin Davis

This week’s favourite was chosen because of the use of the intentional camera movement (ICM) technique. It’s something we love at Nature TTL, introducing creativity into a shot by breaking all the rules in the book! It’s not the easiest thing to pull off, and requires good light and contrast to produce effectively. Martin has done it well though, and this abstract forest image is great to look at.
