Dear LOR user,

Thank you for being a big part of this community. To better support the initiatives around open educational resources in the state of Michigan, all resources on the Michigan Virtual Learning Object Repository (LOR) are being moved to #GoOpen Michigan (link is external) on September 30th, 2018. During the transition, our LOR will be moved to an archived state, not allowing new user registration or new content to be added. An email with more details was sent to registered users of the LOR in September. To make use of the great resources on the platform, we encourage you to create an account and add your own new resources to the #GoOpen Michigan platform (link is external).

digital photography

Portraiture has evolved from very formal photographs similar to classic oil paintings, to very informal snapshots and even Selfies. Portrait photography can be one of the most challenging forms of photography. Capturing a photo that appears natural and conveys the subject's personality is a skill that takes patience and practice.

Each week students will be creating a visual journal entry that allows them to explore the different Photographers who take pictures that directly relate to the Photo Assignments they will be doing. Students will do research online on a theme each week and find a minimum of 12 different Photographers images and create a collage via Photocollage.com.
