Today I tried to tackle another part of our photography homework...
An environmental portrait is a portrait executed in the subject's usual environment, such as in their home or workplace, and typically illuminates the subject's life and surroundings. By photographing a person in their natural surroundings, it is thought that you will be able to better illuminate their character, and therefore portray the essence of their personality, rather than merely a likeness of their physical features. It is also thought that by photographing a person in their natural surroundings, the subject will be more at ease, and so be more conducive to expressing themselves, as opposed to in a studio, which can be a rather intimidating and artificial experience.

I'm really not enjoying trying to set up posed pictures. I'm not very good at it at all and can never seem to get what is in my mind to happen in reality. And while Marlin is easier to direct than either of the girls, he is rather... shall we say... stiff. :)
Amanda doesn't know it yet, but tomorrow it is her turn to model.
