Project 16: Portrait Angle

Taking pictures of people can be stressful, but portraiture is one of the primary reasons photography was created. Early pioneers wanted to take pictures of people. Some portraits are head-on shots, like Steichen's face-view picture of Greta Garbo above.

For this assignment you are going to take four photos of one person (a partner in class) and photograph him or her in 3/4, 2/3, face-view, and profile. Let's look at each of these formats:

You'll create an 8x10 file in Photo-shop/pea/Pixlr with each of the four views in a single file.
