The students in camera media were tasked with creating four unique, yet similar, self-portraits. Simplicity was key. Expression through facial expressions was encouraged. By changing the lighting, the overall look of the entire photograph can be altered. In the work featured below, you can see how modifying the lighting set-up modified the entire self-portrait.
Some students chose to use filtering gels to change the overall color tone. Some changed the location of the actual lights in relation to where they were posed. Some took them in the academic buildings, some in the dorms, and one outside. But of course, no two self-portraits were alike.
