Portraits Represent Words: SHS Photographers Test Their Limits

“What makes a good, authentic portrait?


The Creative Photography Club learned about the importance of vulnerability in photography and the way different levels of comfort with a subject (or the level of comfort the subject has being in front of the camera) can change the tone of an image.

We practiced pushing the boundaries of our comfort zones to create these portraits, ranging from family to friends to self.

Each photographer chose a word to represent the images they took. They worked to convey the tone of the word through their images.”

You’ve heard the age-old idiom: a picture speaks a thousand words. To the members of Scarsdale’s Creative Photography Club, a photo can emphasize just one.
