Weekly Photography Assignment: Signs of Winter

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 153: Signs of Winter

Our theme this week is Signs of Winter and we’d love to see what images you can create capturing the signs of winter in nature with your camera! Will you use a macro lens to photograph frost covered plants in the morning? Or capture wildlife walking in the snow? Perhaps you will experiment with minimalist landscape techniques, contrasting bare trees with stark skies? The options are endless, and we can’t wait to see what photos you can take of the signs of winter.

Here are some tutorials to help you:
