Portrait/Self-Portrait Critique

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?
