Critique -Texture Face

Step 1: Get together in your CFGs and pull up the texture/portrait photos you made last week. All of the work that was turned in last week is up now on the website.

Step 2: Each person should be able to answer these questions about each photo in your CFG. Write down the group’s thinking on each of these questions for each of your photos. Post the answers in a google doc and turn it into Google Classroom. Critiques are due on Tuesday.

1. Does each image feature a portrait with a strong sense of texture? What does the texture the photographer chose say about the person in the image? What do you think the photographer is trying to say about the person with these photographs? How can you tell? Is the photo’s subject in sharp focus? Does the portrait look professional or are there spots they could do a cleaner job of processing?

2. What could be done to make this photo stronger? What is the photographer trying to say about the subject here? What could be done to make that more clear?

Each person turn in a copy of their group’s answers to the above questions.

Critiques are due on Tuesday.
