It's said in the Unit4 photo project assignment that "Take a group portrait of three or more people" so two is not enough. ;)

Petra, I'm not attempting to quibble with you at all, but my assignment doesn't say the same thing. I wonder if the assignments get slightly modified from time to time, so I wonder what the original poster's assignment says. Mine says,

"Shoot a portrait of a group of people. The people should be posing as a group-that is, they should have some relationship to one another (for example: a family group; a kindergarten class; a Little League team; a group of sales clerks; the winners in a beauty contest). Try to arrange the individuals in a pattern that gives the picture some visual interest. Avoid lining them up like soldiers."

Still sounds like in general it would be more than two, but it doesn't specify (or at least, mine doesn't. I'm not disputing the fact that your assignment *does* specify three or more :) )

Here is what my photo assignment sheet says:

"Take a group portrait of three or more people."

That's mine as well. But it was the same as unit three with the back lighting question...no people or people, I guess you need to ask your adviser or just do what your own unit says.....

As did mine and I received my assignments in December 2009. You may want to contact Chris and ask him if the assignments have changed any and if 2 people would be sufficient.

I'm in the "three or more people" category. Received first 3 units December 24, 2009, Remainder..a couple months later.

If you have a question about it, contact your Advisor.

+1

I just read into that a group meant more than two though.
