Photographer audition: Studio portraiture
Challenge has finished
The client is a large local printing lab with an excellent reputation with amateur photographers. The owners see an opportunity to build on that reputation by providing customers with professional studio portraiture. To find a suitable photographer, they want to see an example of your portrait work. The images must look like they were shot in a studio, the subjects must be posed, well lit, and limited to one or two people. The client is more interested in your ability to shoot than to edit, so keep the editing to a minimum.
