The Colour Green | 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.


Spring might have come late but I think most of us are embracing the joys of the great outdoors at the moment. This week’s photo challenge is an easy one on the surface because it’s the one colour that’s most prevalent in nature.

Usually when a subject matter is easy to come by then creativity drops off a bit so don’t let that happen to you. Make it hard for yourself!


Here’s a few ideas you might want to try.


Create an image where the green element isn’t the largest part of the image but it demands the most attention.

Try finding green objects that are man-made.

Create an abstract or close up image.

Experiment with changing the white balance on your camera.
