This time, we’re turning the camera on YOU. Taking a self-portrait can be difficult: not only technically, but creatively, as well. The days of seeming creative by shooting your own reflection in a mirror are over. Duck faces need not apply.
We all know what makes an unsuccessful self-portrait, but what makes for a successful one? I always think that self-portraits that give the viewer a keen insight as to who you are or “what makes you tick” are lovely, as are well-exposed, well lit, creatively composed ones.
You have all that practice. Let’s take a look at some portraits now, shall we? All images are borrowed from photo.tutsplus.com
ASSIGNMENT: Create your own self-portrait using Photography. You can do basic edits in Photoshop to increase contrast, sharpness, saturation and cropping. Due Friday, April 20.
