Weekly Photography Assignment: Ponds, Rivers & Lakes

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 131: Ponds, Rivers and Lakes

Our theme this week is Ponds, Rivers & Lakes. We want you to show us what nature you can find in, on and around these bodies of water. You could look for macro shots of frogs, long-lens shots of ducks, wide angle waterscapes, or even get creative with some astro-reflections?! 

Here are some tutorials to help you:
