User Personas & Portraits

This past months (October and September) have been about trying to define my thesis work, even though its yet a work in progress due to many reasons, i've been trying to integrate everything i know in it from photography to things i enjoy like food and plants.

So the other day i had to start doing user personas (you might ask what is that?); User Personas, are often used during the initial design of a website, app or project where one generates a person in which you start basing your content on, it's like a target audience with the difference that you create from 2 to 5 and give them needs and possible user flows, this way you are creating your design, website or app with an specific user in mind besides yourself.

User personas can be real people or can be people we made up, in my case i usually like mixing both because it makes the process of creating them easier and is fun. So this gave me the chance to request friends to get their portraits taken and work on it for a weekend of fun portrait shooting, we had terrible hours in some cases which led to the sun being on top of us or having no sun at all, but i think it worked out, the final layout for my thesis book is not yet finished but this will give you an idea of how User Personas might look.

For the portraits of user personas, often stock images are used, i always like doing my own photography to avoid either paying stock images and because i feel they look more natural than the stock people (sorry stock images people :/ ) so in my case, we used natural light and the one bouncer in some cases, except in the night portrait in which my flash was needed.
