Portrait Post Critique

For this portrait project, I chose Janet Borden as my reference photographer and followed her approach of connecting the background and the identity of the person being portrayed. Overall my photos went pretty well as I identified those people’s occupations or habits by posting as much information as possible in the background to suggest facts. Besides, I add the mirror reflections to add depth of the space.

However, although I tended to use natural light for my photographs, some photos HAVE to be taken indoors, which made those photos slightly dark. I adjusted those dark photos by adding light on but made some of the parts too bright. That made printed photos look bad.

For next time’s project, I will adjust the light to a adequate level and try to use natural light as more as possible so that I can create a natural scene in my photo.
