Weekly Photography Assignment: Signs of Spring

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 encourage yourself to push the boundaries of your photography and improve together as a community on the website.

Week 167: Signs of Spring

Our theme this week is Signs of Spring and we’d love to see what photographs of the first signs of spring you can take! The new season is just around the corner, and signs of new life emerging can be found everywhere in nature if you look hard enough. Perhaps you will photograph the first spring flowers? Maybe you will capture songbirds singing their spring songs in your garden? Or maybe you will get out your macro lens and look for the tiniest signs of the new season? The options are endless, and we can’t wait to see what inspiring images showcasing the signs of spring in nature you can create. 

Here are some tutorials to help you:

Last week’s winner

Last week’s theme was Water– and our favourite image this week is:

This week’s winner is this image, captured by Stephen Matthew Cowen of ‘Water droplets on some plants in my garden after a rain.’ We love the attention to detail in this shot, and the depth of field allowing for super sharp droplets against a blurred background. Well done, and thank you to all who entered!
