Sportraits in Photojournalism Class

Today in our Photojournalism class, our instructor Jay Capers showed us how to take Sports Portraits or “Sportraits” for an assignment. We went across the street to where these big tires are to watch as Jay demonstrated how to use a two light set up, to look for graphic backgrounds and how to create a great photo portraying the athlete in a setting that fits their sport. We then got to go to the faculty exercise room to see another way to set up and also to get an action shot. Becca Benson, one of our classmates, did a great job modeling for all the photos.
