Grade 12 Photography Portfolios

The Gr. 12 Media Arts class was given the task to take creative photos under a theme to create a portfolio. They were challenged to do only minimal Photoshop edits allowing the photography skills to shine through, but were given creative freedom on one photo to explore fun adjustments on Photoshop. Take a look at a few of the portfolios!

More Than Your Average Photograph

The Grade 11 Media Arts classes created self portraits that connected to the principle of hybridization. The students had to use a photograph of themselves, and then combine traditional art (sketches, watercolour paintings…) with their photographs. Each portrait is a representation of who the artist is as a person. Here is the result:
