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 124: The Night Sky 

Our theme this week is The Night Sky. This week we want you to head out at night to photograph the sky! Show us the world around you at a different time of day, and challenge yourself to take the best night sky image that you can. 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, Framing. You can view all of the entries here.

This week’s winning photo is by Georgia Walters. Georgia has made great use of the foliage near her to create a soft foreground that frames the deer nicely. The image also makes use of the rule of thirds, with the deer’s face aligning with a key focal point. Georgia said: “Well hidden, I’m surprised I saw her. Foraging in the tall weeds she knew I was there long before I spotted her. Just as I brought my camera to my eye, she turned to leave but gave me one last look. That was all I needed” Fantastic entry, well done Georgia!
