Expressive Portrait Project

This weekend you will be photographing your expressive portrait assignment. We’ve spent days talking about it, so hopefully you have a good idea of what you want to do. Remember the following requirements, though:

  • 120 shots minimum
  • 2 models maximum (in that first 120 shots)
  • No pets, and no children
  • Bonus points for a model over the age of 55

And here are a few examples for you to look at from previous students:

A really cool video that one of your fellow students found yesterday when you were all searching different lighting techniques:

The “evaluation process” is a little different for this project. Below is a video explaining how you go about getting the evaluation sheet, and how to fill it out.

One of my old professors sent me this link today – there’s a photo contest that RIT is holding right on Instagram: You just have to tag your top 10 images #ritphotoprize2016 by November 4th, and you could win an iPad Mini, or other prizes.

Follow this link for the full rules and whatnot:

Class Syllabus and Camera Loan Letter

Here are PDFs of the Course Syllabus and the Camera Loan Letter from last week. Just in case you need an extra.


Welcome to the Digital Photography Class blog.  This blog will be where I will be posting handout, assignment information, as well as recordings of any demonstrations that I do in class.  It will be a very important resource for you during the class, and you will want to visit regularly.

On the right, you will see a link that says “Subscribe to This Blog.”   I want you to enter your email address so that the blog will automatically send you a notification whenever something important is posted.  Don’t worry too much – it won’t be emailing you every day.  🙂

Once you enter your email address on that page, then go to your email and find an email from my website (it may be in your junk mail folder), and in that email there will be a link.  Click on that link to confirm the subscription.  This is basically just verifying that you are a real person, not a spam program.
