Assignment 4: Portrait


I found this assignment to be the most difficult one yet.  I approached and took pictures of several individuals (strangers) but found it really hard to direct them in any fashion so it ended up being multiple angles of the same shot.  I think it was difficult because we needed three photos, and I was only able to get one good shot of these strangers.  I ended up using my best friend as the subject, thinking it would be easier.  It ended up being more difficult because I didn’t know how to direct him or tell him what to do.  I think I would have had a much better time with the assignment if we only had to do 1-2 shots, so then I could have done the portrait of a stranger and captured more of their “essence”.   It was too difficult with someone I know because I know his personality and it was difficult to communicate that in a photo.
