Technically speaking what we’re photographing in this challenge are shades of light grey as white is really the existence of nothing in digital photography terms.
Photographing any subject that is the same colour as the background is tricky at the best of times but the problem with white is that it’s very reflective so it’ll confuse the heck out of your camera sensor.
The best starting point for this challenge is a white wall and someone wearing a white coat……see how you get on with that.
Try and use shade and shadow to add shape it your images and show off things like texture.
This weekly photo challenge is designed to complement our photography basics section the London Mums website. 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 and think outside the box as much as possible. Photography is as much about creative interpretation as it is about technical prowess.
