Portrait Photography

Your final photography assignment (aside from your regular personal Flickr portfolio, which continues until the end of the semester, and yearbook event photography, which runs until the end of the school year) is to take a set of professional looking portrait photographs.

Portraits may seem simple, but there is a lot to consider when taking a high quality portrait. You need to concern yourself with much more than where your subject should stand and whether he/she is smiling or not.

I have some videos that I’d like you to watch to help you understand some of the important considerations. I will be asking you to explain how you’ve gone about your planning and posing, and these videos will give you a lot of good information about what I’m looking for.
