Weekly Photography Assignment: Petals and Leaves

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 42: Petals and Leaves

Our theme this week is Petals and Leaves. This week, try looking a little bit closer at things. I want to see photos of petals and leaves, close-up or at a wide-angle perhaps, that show me the intricacies of flora! Here are some tutorials to help you out:

Last Week’s Favourites

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

Photo by Harry

Perhaps a bit noisy, but I love the colours and the effect the slow shutter speed has had on the water. The clouds are not too blurred from the slow shutter speed, so they don’t block the view. Instead, they add depth and are quite dynamic in the image. The green hills set it off quite nicely, too. Great work!
