In the photography class two Thursdays ago we talked about photographing people. The main take away is when taking a candid picture of a person it is better if your subject is not looking at the camera. Make sure foreign objects are not going threw the subject's head. When shooting a portrait the subject is the main focus point. Make sure the subject is not looking into the sun. When shooting a group of people stagger heads so the eye is drawn to all of the subjects in the picture.
In class we had the opportunity to shoot a "model"with umbrella lights and a flash. It was actually more fun than I expected. I totally turned into my mother. I had the model posing every which way possible.
