Portraiture: Environmental and Classical.

This project covers the main aspects of photographing people. Students photograph a person(s) in an environment that tells the viewer something about them. This style of portraiture makes students think more in depth about the person they choose to photograph. They also photograph in the mode of classic portraiture which is mostly about a person with a soft background with more emphasis on the figure itself. The project also required using different shutter speeds to photograph motion, either action that is frozen or varying degrees of motion blur. The first two photographs are environmental portraits by Jun Kim. He manages to capture quiet moments with his friend.

The following photograph is unusual due to being a double exposure. It is basically a classic portrait by Jake Wong.

Colton White utilized a technique called “a frame within a frame” in his photograph of his brother at the beach.

Kirin Kim photographed the next two images. I love the softness of the mood and how the light from the window illuminates the profile of the boy.
