This past week I had an assignment to photograph graduate students from The Corcoran teaching art at a local grade school in Washington. The twist to the assignment was that the faces of the children couldn't be visible in the images. I brought a few prime lenses and shot wide open hoping to get as much out of focus as possible. I think I found some fun ways to feature the Corcoran students while at the same time hiding the children.
I think when I was in school I had to make a portrait of a person without showing their face. It's definitely a different kind of challenge when it's 25 faces, and they all want to ham it up for the camera.
