Why we think this is great: One continuing trend within the world of stock photography that we regularly talk about is images taken from alternative perspectives. This image is a great point of view (pov) shot but there are load of other angles you could use within your photography to change it up a bit. Close ups, high overhead aerial views, images from underneath, and wide angled shots are great ways to set your photographs apart from the crowd by increasing the drama to create an eye catching image. Check out this lightbox for some more inspiration.

Why we think this is great: Top view images with flat lay compositions are quickly growing in popularity. We love the bright colours of this shot and with the heat we’ve had in the UK this weekend, we’d do anything to be able to reach into this image and gobble up the delicious looking fresh fruit in real life.

Why we think this is great: Getting interiors photography to look good isn’t an easy task but we think this photographer has done a great job with this light and airy image. We’ve put together 10 tips to help you improve your interiors photography if you fancy giving it a go.

Why we think this is great: Oh look, here we go talking about authentic lifestyle imagery again but it’s a personal favourite trend of mine and it’s continuing to grow in popularity within the stock world. Candid images showing real people and real emotions are quickly overtaking more classic ‘stocky’ shots in terms of popularity and this image is a perfect example of a beautiful, candid image with a super authentic feel.

If 5 images aren’t enough you can view a bunch of great images submitted in the last 2 weeks here. Motivated to get uploading this week? If you submit any images you think would be perfect candidates for our next ‘Pictures of the Week’ post, tweet the image refs to @AlamyContent with the hashtag #AlamyPOTW and we’ll consider them for the feature.
