Weekly Photography Assignment: Water

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.

Introducing our new Monthly Assignment Winner!

From these weekly favourites, each month we will select one exceptional image, crowning the photographer as the Monthly Assignment Winner. This talented photographer’s captivating image will be shared on our Instagram story and in our newsletter.

Remember to include your Instagram handle in each weekly entry for a chance to be featured!

Week 264: Water

Our theme this week is Water, and we’d love to see how you can photograph water in all its forms, found in nature. Photographing water offers a plethora of photography opportunities. You may decide to incorporate it into your landscape images, through reflections, or a waterfall, or maybe even an ocean scene. Or, perhaps you will look to photograph wildlife in the rain, or capture dewdrops on some of your favourite macro subjects. Maybe you will even find frozen water, if you live somewhere cold enough! Whether you’re a seasoned nature photographer, or are new to the genre, the options for capturing new and interesting photos of water are endless, and we can’t wait to see what inspiring shots you can create.

Here are some tutorials to help you:

Last week’s winner

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

This week’s winner is this image, captured by S Jackson: This is a beautiful composition that allows the stunning landscape plenty of breathing room against a beautiful sky. It is wonderfully exposed to balance the bright colours of the sunset against the darker tones in the foreground, and the sweeping horizonal lines enhance the epansive feel of the scene. A brilliant image!

Well done, and thank you to all who entered!
