Professional Portraiture I – Open-ish Assignment – Photo by RCC student Jessica Martin
Each week RCC’s 2nd year Portrait students are given a variety of assignments. Many of the assignments are technical in nature and designed to reinforce fundamental portrait photography skills and concepts. Other assignments are related to the business and workflow of a portrait studio. This assignment is their first full, studio portrait assignment. It’s a fairly open, creative assignment…with a few strict posing, lighting and submission requirements hence the name “open-ish”.
