Photography challenges are a great way to get out of your comfort zone and try new things. Our weekly challenges are designed to encourage you to get creative, practise your skills and develop new techniques. You can view the full list of challenges here.

This week's challenge is...

Portrait in-front of large doors


A challenge that’s perfect whether you’re using natural light or studio light, this week is all about windows/doors.

There’s plenty of creative opportunities when it comes to these everyday objects. This could be including a person or object for added interest (remember the focus is the door/window), using creative composition to create an aesthetically pleasing image, or using lighting to create a specific mood in the image.

Below are a few classes that could help you if you’re looking for some creative ideas. Further inspiration may also be found in our live talk show with architectural photographer Sean Conboy.

    It’s great that there are weekly challenges where you’re able to use only natural light. At this point in my photography journey I still don’t have any studio lighting and I’ve been trying to control natural light at home with reflectors and black boards but sometimes it just gets impossible because natural light illuminates the entire place. However, trying to control natural light is a great way to understand how light works as well. I’m looking forward to getting my first studio lights next year and go all-in with studio lighting to learn as much as possible.
