Fashion Setup

Your pictures should show a variety of composition and also showcase a variety of ways to light your subject. Please review lighting techniques here.
Please review portrait tips here.

You must choose a partner from class. You can work in groups of three, but you have to take pictures of each person.
You will model for each other on Thursday and Tuesday.
Contact sheets are due from each day at the end of the period.
You will shoot one day outdoors and one day in the studio.
Your location away from school needs to be unique and interesting on it's own.
Get creative. Play dress up. Dress stylishly and/or uniquely.

On Tuesday you will  get together with your partner  and answer the following questions. You will email me your responses during class time.

1. What are your names?
2.  What types of clothing are you trying to sell?
3. What day are you using the studio?
4. What specific clothing will you wear each day? What accessories will you bring to enhance your shoot?
5. Where do you want to shoot outside of school? Why?
6. How will you ensure that you give 100% on this project? What can you do to make these pictures the best pictures you've taken in class?
7. How will you use lighting to make your pictures interesting? Be specific.

Bring your cameras Thursday and Tuesday. If you are shooting away from school you can go directly to your shooting location.
