6 Editorial Self-Portraits to Shoot at Home


Lake Tahoe-based photographer Tajreen Hedayet made this short, sweet, and inspiring 2-minute video tutorial on six different editorial self-portraits you can try shooting at home if you’re looking for a way to exercise your creative muscles.

“The object of editorial photography is to tell a story or convey a feeling in a creative or artistic way,” Tajreen writes. “This is opposed to commercial photography which is more direct or basic, and usually meant to sell a product or show the subject off (i.e. headshots).

“The goal of this kind of photography is not necessarily to ‘feature’ the subject, but use the subject to convey a mood or as part of a bigger scene.”

Here are the six different concepts shared in the tutorial:

#1: Shadow Play

#2: Color Pop

#3: Half-Turned Chair

#4: Movement

#5: Through Greenery

#6: Close-up

To hear the ideas behind these concepts and Tajreen’s tips for executing each one, watch the video above.
