Weekly Photography Assignment: Trees

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 196: Trees

Our theme this week is Trees, and we’d love to see what creative images you can take to showcase trees! Perhaps you will look for changes in the colours of leaves, or try to get a new perspective on a forest, or photograph a lone tree in a misty morning landscape. Whether you’re a seasoned nature photographer, or a total newbie, the options for photos showcasing trees are infinite, and we can’t wait to see what inspiring images you can create.

Here are some tutorials to help you:

Last week’s winner

Last week’s theme was Signs of Autumn – and our favourite image this week is:

This week’s winner is this image, captured by Parham Pourahmad: ‘Raptors start migrating into our area during fall for the extreme amount of voles to eat. This is a kite diving down to catch a vole at sunset.’  We love the autumnal colour captured in the sky of this image, and the carefully composed silhouette of the bird to allow for negative space. Well done, and thank you to all who entered!
