ASSIGNMENT: Long, Medium and Close-up

By 5 p.m. on Friday, February 26, please shoot and upload a three photo package of one subject comprised of long, medium and close-up shots. Choose a subject who is doing something interesting and newsworthy in good light and then show us who they are, what they do and why we care about it.

Think about the compositions critically – show us their space but don’t let the background and peripheral area become a distraction; let the close-up reveal something a casual viewer would never see. And, as always, pay close attention to your captions.

Spend some time with a copy of National Geographic or wandering through some New York Times’ stories – you’ll see the progression again and again.


One thought on “ASSIGNMENT: Long, Medium and Close-up”

  1. I had difficulty with this shoot. I wanted to do so much more with it, but I kept thinking “But this isn’t newsworthy…” Maybe I’m just over-thinking it?

    Reshoot? Definitely.
