Portraits by Nhan Nguyen The portraits taken for this project had no particular guidelines, but rather was independent students were given the freedom to experiment with the composition of the portraits while still attempting to incorporate composition techniques taught in class and produce high quality photos.
Continuing with the theme of leaning against the wall, I took the picture from a different angle, to capture all perspectives of Joey's face. I also chose to take this picture in landscape mode to accentuate his face as compared to the background, and was able to employ a rule of thirds technique to eliminate the stagnant, dead-center traditional portrait. The reflector was also used in this picture, to give his face some color on a cloudy, overcast day.
