Photography: Studio Portraits

In Photography last week we learned some advanced editing techniques on how to edit portraits and how to set up studio lighting and now we are doing some in-class demonstrations on how to photograph them.  These photographs are from our first demonstration on how to set up the studio and lights and work the camera.

In this unit each student will create a series of 3 edited studio portraits using the SLR camera and 1 studio portraits using a smart phone that will feature a custom grunge filter.  We will learn to incorporate different post-production techniques with each series of photographs but I urge you to take at least 10 photographs to ensure you have 3 great ones.  This week we'll take the photographs and begin editing then I will give another editing demonstration in Photoshop and the final series will be due next Friday.
