As a part of the COMM316 photo excursion in Victor, Idaho, we did a senior portrait photo shoot of our own classmates.

On the last day of the COMM 316 epic photo excursion, the whole class set out to take senior portraits of each other. The class was divided in half, the first half modeled when the second half took photos. After an hour, the two halves switch their roles. This was when my skill of portrait photography really clicked. The ability to pose people came clear to me and I had a wonderful photo shoot session. This blog post is of the group portraits I got from the excursion.

 

Group of five:

Here are some of the girls from my class. From left to right, Hillary, Keli, Sierra, Brooke, and Korah. I really love shooting against sun, this create a beautiful rim light around the models.

They’re both awesome photographers in Eastern Idaho. Daniel is from Pocatello, Idaho and Vanessa lives Idaho Falls. These two taught me a lot about portraiture. I’m glad I have these two in COMM 316 Professional Imaging with me.
