Is it time for your images to see the light of day? Are you ready for a well-edited, sequenced cohesive presentation of your work? Students dig deep into this process in this two day intensive preparing them and their work to be shared with a wider audience and ready for next steps. This class will be organized around professional feedback, workshopping to sequence, edit, print and articulate intention. Each student will arrive with a collection of images and leave with a well defined portfolio that reflects their vision and capability as a photographer. Writing for an artist statement and short bio will be explored. Light of Day will leave students prepared for next steps - portfolio reviews, grant applications, exhibition proposals and more.

Course Level / Prerequisite: Intermediate: You are familiar with a camera, whether film or digital. You understand aperture, shutter speed, exposure, white balance, histograms, and how to control focus. You are comfortable editing and processing your images. You may want to learn how to utilize your camera in a more thoughtful and articulate way, or learn more about lighting or how to utilize theoretical concepts in relation to your portfolio of work.

For the first class students are asked to come prepared with digital files (jpegs preferred for speed) and or prints for consideration. We will aim to build portfolios around 20 to 30 images (dependent on personal / professional goals) so bring up to 50 (or less) images. Reach out to instructor for specific questions. Each project may have more of less images and a unique set of goals.
