OBJECTIVES: TO UNDERSTAND HOW TO PHOTOGRAPH PEOPLE IN A FORMAL OR INFORMAL SETTING. What is portrait photography? Portrait photography is about capturing the essence, personality, identity and attitude of a person utilizing backgrounds, lighting and posing.WHAT TO DO: For this assignment, you are to photograph people, friends and family, either in a formal or informal setting. The informal portrait is best made when the subject is candid. This means photographing the subject in familiar surroundings, such as his home or place of work. In these surroundings the subject's hands, gestures and facial expressions begin to convey character and personality. A formal portrait is not a snapshot but a carefully arranged pose under effective lighting conditions.
You can use your camera in LIGHTROOM MOBILE IN PRO MODE (you need to shoot DNG) or a DSLR camera. SHOOT as MANY PHOTOS AS YOU NEED. You are required to SUBMIT 30 IMAGES. Remember set your White Balance to AWB and your ISO to 400. You can raise your ISO up to 800 if your available light is not that strong. You can lower your ISO if you have a lot of available light. Change your shutter speed (SECS) to capture the correct exposure. Make sure your shutter speed does not go lower than 1/60.
DON'T BE AFRAID TO EXPERIMENT WITH DIFFERENT APPROACHES. THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX.
