Project Description

Photograph a model in an intimate style

ASSIGNMENT

Create a set of model photos that depict intimate moments. This assignment is a great way to practice everything that goes into a shoot: selecting a model, finding a space that offers different backgrounds, testing different outfits, shooting, and editing. Your goal is to capture a mood that's personal and intimate. And, by creating a set of images, you'll create variety and more interest across your photographs, strengthening your portfolio and flattering your model.

On the shoot, take charge by paying attention to what's available in the space, directing your model, and being really precise in your edits. A successful shoot requires so much more than just clicking your camera!

DELIVERABLE

Upload 3 or more model photos from your photoshoot to the project gallery. A complete set includes shots of:

  • More than one outfit
  • More than one setting

Bonus points: share the photos on Instagram using hashtags #VanStylesXskillshare and #skillshare
