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 151: The Night Sky
Your assignment this week is to head out at night and turn your camera to the sky. Aim to take the best astro images and nightscapes that you can!
Here are some tutorials to help you:
- How to Use a Histogram for Better Star Photos

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:

- Include a description with your photo and tell us a bit about it!
You have until next Tuesday, 26th November, to submit your photo.
Last Week’s Favourite
Here is our favourite submission from last week’s theme, Patterns in Nature. You can view all of the entries here.
This week our winning image is by Meandmolly showing spores forming patterns on a fern. As well as showing the pattern of the leaves and the spores, this image has excellent composition by making use of the natural leading lines. Nice shot!
