Is it time for your images to see the light of day? Are you ready for a well-edited, cohesive presentation of your work? Students dig deep in this two-day intensive aimed at increased confidence and clarity when speaking about and presenting work. This class is organized around professional feedback, workshopping to sequence, edit, and articulate intention. Each student arrives with a collection of images (digital files / print) and leaves with a well-defined portfolio that reflects their vision and capability as a photographer. In support of the images and goals of the photographer, the essential writing components - a project statement and artist bio will be explored in this session. Light of Day will leave students better prepared for the next steps - portfolio reviews, submission processes, 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.

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.
