More great photos from 2nd pj assignment

Here is the second assignment for the photojournalism class followed by some great photos:

  1. You need to photograph at least 5 different people. For each person, you need to take at least 3 very different types of portraits.
  2. You need turn in 3 very different photos of the same person.
  3. You could take one photo using a wide-angle setting. For the second photo, you could move closer and change the lens setting to between W and T. In the third photo, you could use the telephoto lens.
  4. The person’s eyes must be very sharp, even when viewed at 125%. The closest eye of the closest person must be sharp.
  5. Ideally, there should be catchlights in the person’s eyes (the light bright lights).
  6. Do not put the person’s face in the center of the photo. The person’s eyes should be approximately 1/3rd from the left or right (or top and bottom).
  7. Do not cut-off the person’s wrists, hands, or feet.
  8. Do not frame the photo in a random way. Carefully frame the photo so the important things are in the photo and the unimportant things are outside the photo.
  9. Be careful that nothing distracting appears behind a person’s head. In other words, no trees should grow out of a person’s head.
  10. The person’s face should be brighter than the background.
