Photography Challenge - Week 31

29 July - 4 August

Are you looking for some photography ideas to test your skills and get your creativity flowing? We’ve got 52 weeks of photography challenges to help inspire you. You can view the full list of challenges here.

This week's challenge is...

Portrait photography with shadows


Packshots are a quick way to make money as a photographer, so knowing how to shoot good packshots is a great skill for any photographer to have.

This week we’re giving you the opportunity to test your skills when it comes to shooting packshots. Can you work quickly and efficiently? Can you create pure white backgrounds? Can you get a well-lit product?

These types of shots don’t require much equipment or space, so they are a great way to test your skills or try something new. The classes below offer further information and inspiration to help you with this week’s challenge.
