Trees | 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.


You can’t have a green and pleasant land without lots and lots of trees so this week’s subject shouldn’t be too hard to find. Trees are the best representatives of the seasons as they do it with unbiased commitment. Each and every tree has its own unique character and special way of growing around and with its immediate environment.


For this challenge you could take your subject from a couple of different perspectives. You could look at an area of tress and how they are part of a larger landscape or do a closer study of an individual tree and all of its quirks.


Living in London it’s interesting to see how trees are fighting back against the man made environment that has built up around them. There is also many young trees which have been planted on redeveloped areas which have yet to rebel.


Other things to consider are tone, colour and texture. How do these elements change and interact with each other?
