Hey guys. I have applied to do a diploma of photography course at TAFE next year. It will be a two year full time course. I got all the info on my folio today, and I would like to ask for some help on what sort of pics... Here are the categories... I need one photo for each of these: 1. A character portrait of a family member or friend. (Is a character portrait just a normal portrait, or is there more to it?) I have done some christmasy photos of my cousin, would these work? (I can post a sample if it helps) 2. A landscape or architectural image. Self explanatory. Should be fine on that one. 3. An advertising image that would be used to sell a product... Am a bit stumped on what I could do with this one... I understand the question - but any ideas on what I could take a photo of? 4. An abstract design/composition. Would that be like some cool texture or something? Fluffy clouds, that sort of thing? 5. A self portrait/self image. Well thats easy. Find a good background and take a photo of me. Even though i'm not too photogenic. I also need to include 5-10 photos of my choice.
