Weekly Photography Challenge – Up in the Air – Digital Photography School

A Post By: Darlene Hildebrandt

Earlier I shared some images of Identified Flying Objects. People or things that have become airborne is our theme this week for the weekly photography challenge as well.

Weekly Photography Challenge – Up in the Air

Surely you can find something in your area that gets some height, that you can go photograph. Be it:

  • airplanes (real jumbo jets, remote control, or paper ones)
  • balloons (hot air or helium)
  • people (skydivers, skateboarders, parasailers, etc.)
  • dogs, cats, or horses jumping
  • birds, bats or insects flying

Get out and photograph something in the air. How you go about it is up to you. Photograph from the ground looking up? Get up there with them (be safe). Or climb a mountain or get on a rooftop and look down. Get creative with it.

Here are a few ideas:
