Today’s goal is to begin the topic of Environmental Self Portraits. To do this we’ll first begin with what makes a good Environmental Portrait.
First what does it mean….
Environmental Portrait Photography –An environmental portrait is a portrait executed in the subject’s usual environment, such as in their home or workplace, and typically illuminates the subject’s life and surroundings. The term is most frequently used of a genre of photography.
The person doesn’t have to smile.
Or even be looking at the camera….
Below are ones taken by former students.
You can tell where they work by simply looking at the surroundings.
Can’t figure out how to shoot the person’s photo, look for ideas of their where you want to take the photo to get ideas. Like what’s the best way to shoot in a weight room.
Framing. Depth of field. Rule of thirds. Composition makes your photos better.
Later this week your environmental portrait.
Missed class yesterday?? You need to come in before school or during lunch to turn in your Macro images.
Macro Photography – Macro photography, is extreme close-up photography, usually of very small subjects and living organisms like insects, in which the size of the subject in the photograph is greater than life size.
Today’s goal is to complete the layout of your Macro images. Your images should have been taken at a distance of no more than one foot from your subject. Also if you could not physically touch what you were shooting do NOT use the photo.
Reminder of what was to be photographed. 15-20 images inside of one particular room OR 15-20 images of an object larger then a fire hydrant.
Today we’ll discuss all things senior photos including when to shoot, how to watch the weather, where to shoot, and ideas for shooting. Your senior photo shoot is going to count for two summative grades. PLUS will be part of your FINAL EXAM!! Late images will NOT BE ACCEPTED!!

Here is a link to a senior portrait session I did two years ago. Spent 2 hours shooting. She changed clothes three times. Made sure to shoot during Golden Hour. Used a flash or reflector for some of the shots.
