Assignment #3 for Photography 1, Portraiture & Self-portraiture, was reviewed last week in the class's second full class critique session. Everyone did a great job with the assignment and with the technical aspects of using Photoshop and ink-jet printing.
Issues discussed during the crit included:
what defines a portrait?
what is the difference between a portrait and a snapshot of a person?
Is it easier to take pictures of people you are close to?
Why is it important to turn the camera onto ones self?
How does lighting change the mood of a person in a photograph?
What metaphors exist within a portrait?
