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 two favourites 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 76: Water

Our theme this week is Water. Lakes, coasts, rain… this week’s theme revolves around the source of life! There are plenty of things you can do with this, so let’s see what you can come up with.

Here are some tutorials to help you:

Last Week’s Favourites

Here is our favourite from last week’s theme, Textures in Nature. You can view all the entries here.

Photo by Patty Hammarstedt

This week’s favourite was chosen for its clear imagination required in spotting a shot like this. The whole frame is covered in texture and abstract patterns to explore. It’s initially not clear what the image is of, keeping your eye on the photo whilst you decipher it. The depth of field works nicely, adding depth into the shot and creating a very 3D feel with the focus point feeling like it is popping out of the screen.
