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.

Week 198: Water

Our theme this week is Water, and we’d love to see what images you can take incorporating water in the natural world! Water can be found everywhere in nature, and in so many forms. Perhaps you will photograph the morning dew on a spider’s web, or use long exposure techniques to capture the movement of a body of water like a river, or try to freeze the falling rain with fast shutter speeds. You may even choose to photograph the ocean in action, of you live near the sea! Whether you’re a seasoned nature photographer, or a total newbie, the options for photos of water in nature 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 Macro– and our favourite image this week is:

This week’s winner is this image, captured by Robert Swinney: We love the creative use of depth of field and perspective in this image. The composition is highly effective, and allows the viewer to really get a sense of ‘predator and prey.’ And it is all the more impressive that this has been created on a miniature scale. It’s an awesome behavioral capture, and a great reminder to stop and look down at the little things happening nature from time to time – there may be some epic moments! Well done, and thank you to all who entered!
