Weekly Photography Assignment: Wildlife Action

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 221: Wildlife Action

Our theme this week is Wildlife Action, and we’d love to see what creative images you can take showcasing wilife in action! Perhaps you will photograph birds in flight, or a deer running across a field. Maybe you will look for predators hunting their prey, and manage to capture an image that tells a story! Try using fast shutter speeds to freeze these moments, creating sharp images of animals in action. Whether you’re a seasoned nature photographer, or are new to the genre, the options for awesome photos of wildlife in action are endless, 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 Signs of Spring – and our favourite image this week is:

This week’s winner is this image, captured by Seawildearth: “Spring is announced in Okinawa in the wild sense when the Green Tree Frogs emerge for their mating season in mid-March. We love the lighting in this image, and the the way the bright greens have been highlighted and exposed – green is after all one of the colours most associated with spring! The story behind the image is also imprtant, and showcases a knowledge and understanding of the species in the portrait, and its intricate relationship to one of the most beautiful seasons. Well done, and thank you to all who entered!
