Week 3 – Selfless Selfie

Part 1 – Background

What defines you? If people were to look at one photograph that defines who you are as a person without you in the image what would be in the photograph?

That’s it.

That’s it in a nutshell. What are the things in your room. Your book bag. Your home. The items if placed just right were to show off who you are as a person.


Part 2 – Assignment

Using your camera or cellphone capture an image that defines who and what you are as a person. It’s not so much the Elements of Photography that are important but your lighting. We have covered lighting many times before in our course.

Can a filter be used on your photos? Yes. However don’t make the filter so domineering that it obscures what is in the photograph. Most likely this image should not be black and white.
