  1. Supply List

By Joe Yablonsky

Go beyond taking random photographs and develop a cohesive body of work that is uniquely yours. Review some contemporary photographers’ work and define the characteristics that are incorporated into their portfolios. Then evaluate your best photos and identify the attributes that define your own photographic vision. Targeted homework assignments help you increase your collection of portfolio-quality work. Portfolio books, print sizes, order of presentation, photography websites, and presentation methods are also discussed.

Note: This streamed program will not be recorded.
