This weekly photo challenge is deigned to complement our free online photography basics classes. Each week we will set a different theme and your homework is to go out and photograph a collection of images related to that theme.
You can start this challenge whenever you like and do the different themes in any order you see fit. Think of these challenges as a photography workout. Don’t just do them once and not revisit them. If you do start these challenges as you begin our online basics classes then in a few months why not revisit older challenges to see how much better a photographer you have become.
Also try to think outside the box as much as possible. Photography is as much about creative interpretation as it is about technical prowess.
If at any time you’d like a critique of your images then please feel free to email us.

The summer holidays might be over and I’m sure many of you have had some wonderful and interesting trips away full of photographic gold but that wouldn’t be much of a challenge to photograph now would it?
Each day most people take a journey, not the type of journey you might have on MasterChef or the X Factor but one that is a little bit more mundane.
The real challenge in photographing something you do every day like a commute is finding something new and interesting about your journey. The fact of the matter is that what you might find uninteresting because you see it everyday might be fascinating to someone else.
There’s also certain rituals which we perform on journeys that you could photograph, doing your make-up or reading a book on a crowded train do make for amusing imagery.
