Assignment – A3:Portraits/Light
Several of you missed class yesterday. Make sure you read all of the handouts, view the presentations, and understand the assignment. Contact me right away – after you view everything – if you have questions.
One note: I should have mentioned this last night, but note on your assignment:
“In addition to the captions, you need to write a sentence or two for each photo in your blog entry which describes the type of light you chose, why you chose it, and how you think it helps your portrait communicate your intentions, how it creates the type of mood you were trying to convey, or how it might add visual interest.”
Write these in the body of your blog entry, not in your captions. It’s a small extra step, but I just want to make sure that you are thinking about the light as well as the content of your portraits. You need to expand your vocabulary about photography and learn to write and talk using this vocabulary.
I wasn’t able to drop by the Com Arts office to grab available camera kits yesterday. If you want to check out a kit, contact me right away and I can leave a checkout form at the office.
Remember, think your way through this assignment:
- Identify potential subjects
- Identify possible locations based on lighting conditions
THEN proceed with your portraits!
As always, contact me if you have any questions.
