Self Portrait Treatment: Thursday and Friday

  1. What picture category will you shoot at the end of the week?
  2. What will we learn about you in this picture?
  3. What will you wear?
  4. How will you attempt to light the picture?

Next, I want you to grab a sheet of paper and sketch one of this for self-portraits. Include location, outfits, poses, costumes, and facial expressions etc. I realize that not everything is an amazing artist, but do your best.

Hints for self-portraits:

Use colors or lighting to create a concept.

Costumes or uniforms work great.

Change angles.

Use props.

Vary the lighting.

Try different emotional looks.

Pose in action.

Most importantly for this assignment don't forget your composition rules. Use framing, leading lines, rule of thirds, color contrast etc. to enhance your photo. Fill the frame.
