Weekly Photography Assignment: Wide-angles

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 79: Wide-angles

Our theme this week is Wide-angles. For this week, put down your telephoto lens and pick up a wide-angle. Perhaps you already do that as a landscape photographer, in which case you’re in luck. But this week is all about shooting wide. I’m particularly interested in seeing what can be achieved with wildlife photography this week.

Here are some tips for you:

Last Week’s Favourite

Here’s our favourite entry from last week’s assignment, Spring. You can view all of the entries here.

Photos by Tim J Nicol

I couldn’t choose a favourite between these 3 photos by Tim showing hummingbirds that return in the springtime. Beautiful animals to photograph, they are also challenging to capture in flight. Not only that, but ensuring that you don’t make their vivid colouring too garish can be tricky. These are lovely shots to look at: sharp, with well balanced colour, and showing off gorgeous feather details. Great shots Tim!
