Something old | Weekly Photography Challenge

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.


There’s something fascinating and unpredictable about decay and decomposition that makes it a subject that photographers are always drawn to. You could photograph anything from ancient building to a rusty car in a field for this challenge.

The key as always to create an image that is unexpected and this can easily be achieved by carefully considered juxtaposition.


You might find an old building in the middle of modern skyscrapers or a mouldy apple in an otherwise immaculate fruit bowl.

The best images are found ones but if you want to create your own compositions then all you need is some careful planning.
