Environmental portraiture: your brief for the July Clique Challenge
Theme: Environmental Portraiture
Deadline: Monday, July 24 at 12 noon AEST
Our July Challenge theme is “Environmental Portraiture”.
Environmental portraiture is a portrait that includes the subject’s surrounding environment. This type of portraiture aims to provide clues to a person’s tastes, hobbies, job or background. Whether this is photographing an artist in their studio, or of a farmer amongst their livestock on a farm.
Your entry can feature more than one subject. Choose your portrait subject/s wisely and shoot with the intention of creating a frame that adds depth to the subject.
Take some inspiration from Fairfax photographers and the archives of The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age. Environmental portraits are a great way to give our readers insight into who and what a story is about.
