Photography Assignment: Portraits

Last week's assignment in Photography Class was portraits. Single Person Portraits, Group Portraits, and Self Portraits. I already showed you 'single portraits' in my last post with Heather, and now these are my 'Group Portraits'. I probably will not show you my self portraits because my face isn't that interesting, and I'm sure you're not going to want to look at 10 more pictures of my face! Anyway...'Group' refers to at least 2 I decided to grab a few of my close friends here on campus and take some fun pictures of them! 
My goal was to capture something fun, and girly. These three girls are NOTHING BUT fun and girly! So, it worked out perfectly! I hardly had to tell them what to do; they were just being themselves, which made some great pictures! 

I would like to introduce you to Lisa (left), Stephanie (center), and Mae (right). You probably recognize Lisa because she is my roommate and tends to be with me 99%, which results in her being in 99% of my photos! 

It's a Mae-Sandwich!!!!

Me: "Girls, I want to get a picture of you all laughing. Fake it if you need to." 
Stephanie: "Hey Lisa, can you snort please?"
Result? Everyone hysterically laughing! Then I became a very happy photographer!!!!

Pink nail polish describes Stephanie.  Her dozens of music/band posters hanging on the wall behind her describe her even more! :)

We have 10 fingers! AHHHHHHHH!!!!!! 

 This is (below) probably my favorite picture! I love how all of the girls are wearing such colorful clothes, and how the wall is covered in posters and pictures.  Each of the facial expressions describe each girl....even the ones who are hiding! :)

Just in case anyone is wondering...I got an 'A' on this assignment. 
Peace Out!
