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.
Patterns and textures in nature is the inspiration for many creatives from architects to fashion designers and is a random as it is structured. The task of this week’s photo challenge is to find different types of patterns in nature.
You can take an abstract approach to this project by taking macro images or explore how patterns exist in large landscape scenes.
Water always creates surprising patterns and it’s ever-changing so each of your images will be unique. Think about how the reflection of colours and other patterns create new images in existing patterns.
Patterns can also tell a story like the growth lines in a tree or they functional like spider webs. Patterns like sand dunes can be created by other elements like the wind or water flow.
