This week's challenge is...

Creative photo of an egg


From chocolate eggs to ostrich eggs, test your creativity and see what you can create this week. Remember, when shooting still life subjects such as this, lens choice is an important factor, as is the decision on what background and props to use. Think about the composition of your shot, what techniques could you use to guide the viewers eye? Colour is another factor that you could use this week. Experiment with different colour schemes to see what works — would a monochromatic scheme work? Or perhaps complimentary colours create more impact. The best thing with still life subjects such as this is that you don’t have to worry about your subject moving or changing form, so make sure to use your time to the fullest.

  1. Hi Karl, I m new to this platform. I was having a look at the weekly challenge and was feeling doubtful about my skills. Not sure where to start from and how.

    1. Hi Aisha, don’t worry about your skills as our platform covers education from the very beginner level to the highest professional level of studio lighting and post production and it’s all covered step by step. Use our menu at the top and go to the essentials section, refresh all your knowledge with our Introduction course and then if you are interested in lighting move on to our ‘Lighting Theory’ section and so on. It’s a gradual process but it’s very easy to absorb on our platform.

  2. Thank you for these weekly challenges. They are fun! Look forward to listening to the comments every Tuesday. Lol

    1. Hi Bob – did you mean when is the live show / review session? Its on the Live Shows page – Tuesday 14 April 2020 at 15:00 BST/ 10:00 EST

      Another step on the learning curve, thanks Karl, and some really good images to think about.

      Time to try and find the A game for week 4 methinks.
