Assignment two **Copied from Martin Merchants Photography lessons**

Please read this article and meet with me after you are done
Things to be mindful of;
  • Take the picture in the home or surroundings comfortable to your subjects.
  • You don’t have to get very close – it might be important to show their environment.
  • Don’t worry about being artful – Rogovin’s work was always straight-forward and simple.
  • Ask your subjects if there is anything they want to put into the picture, hold or display.
  • Keep the group small – no more than 4-5 people. Rogovin said that he always waited until the eyes were on him – your subjects should be looking at you – and they do not need to smile.
When you photograph your group, you will need to record the answer to these questions, which will be displayed with the photograph.

1. What makes our family (or group) special or unique?
2. What is the most important thing to our family?
3. Is there anything in our history (ancestors, homeland, etc) that we treasure and want to keep always in our memory?
