Project Description

Capture a set of four street photography images

ASSIGNMENT

Showcase your city and all of its moving parts by completing a set of four street photographs. This assignment is a great way to sharpen your street photography skills -- capturing candid portraits of strangers, subjects in motion, night shots, and "look-ups" of the architecture around you -- and prepare for projects, whether for personal use or commissioned by a brand. I've been able to improve as a photographer by waking up everyday at sunrise and shooting thousands of photos, so I hope this assignment and class inspires you to get out there and pursure your goals within the world of photography. 

DELIVERABLE

Upload your set of four street photography images. A finished set includes: 

  • One candid portrait
  • One image showcasing motion (utilizing blur)
  • One "look-up" shot
  • One image taken at night (from the above three categories)

Here are my final four photographs for my class project:
