We tasked our iWitness community to get their lense a bit closer to the action for this week’s close up challenge.

This week was full of nature as plenty of our photographers got close ups of their subjects, in particular Robert McKenna, who did well to get a Chinese water deer looking directly at the camera.

Our Suffolk iWitness members also got close up to different patterns that they see everyday, including Julie Kemp who sent in a photo of the patterns that line her radio speakers.

We want out iWitness community to explore using black and white in their photography, by turning their photos black and white, or capturing objects that feature the shades.

To take part, become a Suffolk iWitness member – and you could see your pictures published online on our websites or in one of our newspapers.
