Weekly Photography Assignment: The Night Sky

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 140: The Night Sky

Our theme this week is The Night Sky. This week, grab your tripod and take a trip out after the sun has set, and look for dark skies filled with stars! We can’t wait to see your photos. 

Here are some tutorials to help you:

Last Week’s Favourite

Here is our favourite submission from last week’s theme, Macro. You can view all of the entries here.

This week’s winning photo is by Luke D Chambers. Through selective focussing, Luke draws our attention to the amazing details of the eye of the bee. He has also allowed enough depth of field to show off some of the legs and the antenna. This image has a strong composition and uses macro to highlight some diverse textures. Well done Luke!
