Weekly Photography Assignment: Portrait Orientation
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.
Our theme this week is Portrait Orientation. As a compositional challenge this week, we want you to try taking photos in a portrait orientation. No landscape orientations allowed – but portrait landscapes are fine, of course. Other than that, the subject choice is up to you! So long as it is nature of course.
Here are some tutorials to help you:
- How to Take Landscapes with a Telephoto Lens
- Bird Photography Tips: Shooting Bird Portraits
- How to Take Impacting Portraits of Wildlife
- How to Compose a Macro Photo
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 Tuesday, 16th March, to submit your photo.
