Our weekly photography challenges are designed to encourage you to try new things. 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 with rim lighting

Rim Lighting

Rim lighting is a commonly used photography lighting technique, useful for everything from portraits to product photography.

This week we’re giving you the freedom to photograph any subject, as long as there’s a clear element of rim lighting. Remember, rim lighting could be subtle, perhaps for portraiture, or it could be more obvious, for product photography. This week it’s all up to you!

There are a number of classes throughout the site where you’ll see examples of how to use rim lighting, a few of which are included below to offer some guidance and inspiration.

    Hi Ercan,

    Thank you for your message.

    I have updated the gallery for week 35 and will update the gallery for week 36 early next week once all of the entries are in 🙂

    Please let me know if you have any questions.


    Hi there, I uploaded my two works for weekly challenges 35 and 36, can not see them in any of the galleries. Am I doing something wrong? Thanks for your interest.
