Weekly Photography Assignment: The Colour Yellow

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 189: The Colour Yellow

Our theme this week is The Colour Yellow, and we’d love to see what creative images of nature subjects featuring the colour yellow you can create! This week we’d like to encourage you to look for yellow out in the natural world. It can be found in many places…perhaps you will photograph the centre of a flower, or a bee in flight, or even choose to look for ‘yellow’ or golden light in the early morning or late evening! Whether you’re a seasoned nature photographer, or a total newbie, the options for nature images that feature the colour yellow are endless, and we can’t wait to see what inspiring photos you can create.

Here are some tutorials to help you:

Last week’s winner

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

This week’s winner is this image, captured by J Northover; ‘This dragonfly was defending it’s territory, regularly chasing off other dragonflies including a much larger Emperor Dragonfly and then returning to it’s perch. This allowed me to prefocus and photograph it using high speed burst.’ We love the way this image has frozen a moment in time for this insect, showcasing it in action in an engaging and entertaining way. The allowing of slight blur in the wings further helps to communicate the quick-moving nature of this species and allows for a pleasing portrait of a well known creature. Well done, and thank you to all who entered!
