Self-Portrait Photography Get out your sketchbook! You will be taking notes!
Who are you? • Who are you? Can a photograph tell that story? For many years artists have created self-portraits. Vincent Van Gogh painted this self-portrait in 1887. What would it take for a photograph to capture you as a person?
How do I take a self-portrait with my camera without having it look like a Facebook photo?? • Tripod or something sturdy and your timer • This is the self-timer setting icon- find this on your camera. You can set up your camera, set the timer and then place yourself in front of the camera
What about the background? • Try to arrange an environmental background OR you can set up your background to something blank- drape a sheet or go in front of a blank wall, etc. • Don’t be afraid to do serious cropping in Photoshop afterwards
