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 force yourself to push the boundaries of your photography and improve together as a community on the website.

Week 152: Water

Our theme this week is Water and we’d love to see what images you can create capturing water found in nature with your camera! Will you photograph reflections in a pond or lake? Or try to capture the movement of rain with a slow shutter speed, or the flow of a waterfall? Perhaps you live by the ocean and can photograph dramatic coastal landscapes? The options are endless, and we can’t wait to see what photos you can take of water found in nature.

Here are some tutorials to help you:

Last week’s winner

Last week’s theme was The Colour Brown – and our favourite image this week is:

This week’s winner is by Jacques Fortier. ‘A pied-billed grebe in a marsh at golden hour makes for a nice contrast of different brown tones.’ We love the rich brown tones in this image – a great example of how beautiful the colour brown can be in nature!
