Self-Portraits - Forget the Selfie!

TASIS Student Self-Portraits

Many TASIS photography students were given "self-portraits" as one of their first assignments of the year. No cell phones allowed, and the assignment was simple. Take a photograph of yourself using your DSLR that communicates something about you that everyone might not already know. Students are very used to taking selfies with their phones, but the deliberate and slower shooting with a tripod was a challenge. Before the assignment, time was spent researching different techniques and famous self-portraits taken throughout the years. Enjoy the slideshow gallery of photographs taken by both Advanced Photography students and this year’s Art and Design 2D students.
