Student Instructions

What is a Portrait?

1. Think about the different styles of photography—portrait, landscape, cityscape, still life and abstract photography— that we've learned about together. 2. Work with a partner to compose a portrait photograph. Think about different backgrounds, different objects they might hold, different amount of zoom, and how all of these impact the feeling of the portrait. 3. Use the photo tool to take the portrait of your subject. 4. Record your voice and share why you composed this portrait the way you did and what your portrait captures about the essence of your subject.
