ASSIGNMENT: The Mug Shots

For Monday’s class, you need to shoot three pairs of mug shots as described below. Choose a different person for each one, shoot multiple frames so you have some various expressions and exposures. Make sure you’re shooting vertical frames – not horizontal – and putting the tops of their shoulders at the bottom of the frame and just a bit of space above their heads. Shoot Tight. Watch your backgrounds.

You’ll need to come back with the following information for each of them, as well:

  • Name
  • Age
  • Hometown
  • Major or job title
  • A way to get in touch with them (phone number or email)

The Bright Sun Mug Shots

Shot between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m., outdoors, in bright light. One at 75 mm, one at 28 mm.

The Shaded Mug Shots

Shot anytime, but in the shade. One at 75 mm, one at 28 mm.

The Window Light Mug Shots

Shot anytime, but indoors, next to a window. One at 75 mm, one at 28 mm. Shoot parallel to the window so the light illuminates them but you don’t have the window in the frame.

Questions? But them in the comments.
