Edit them for any retouching needed:
a. To get rid of dust in the sky or imperfections on the face, use the spot healing tool in Photoshop.
b. To brighten up a smile, use the dodge tool in Photoshop.
Use only in focus photographs, and adjust any brightness/ contrast to make the photograph as good as possible.
Save as lastname-firstname-portrait1, portrait2, etc.
In addition to submitting your top four portrait photographs, submit in Microsoft word a three paragraph self reflection about your images IN PARAGRAPH FORM. Make sure you include the following:
1. Who your subject was and how you posed them
2. Why you chose the background
3. What you did in terms of reflectors/ white foam core etc to control the light
4. What the aperture and shutter speed was on each photograph (find out in "info" on iPhoto)
5. What you thought was most successful about a specific photograph that you thought you did best on
6. What you would like to change about a specific photograph from the four you chose
7. What you did differently to create a portrait for this project then you've done before
8. What was the most important thing you learned about this process? Was it lighting? Posing? Reflector? Working with your subject? Explain WHY?
9. How will this affect your photographing portraits in the future? Elaborate!
