Establishing a relationship with your photographs empowers photographers to define their personal vision and develop coherent portfolios and long-term projects. In this class we will ponder the creative and editorial skills that are needed in making effective and visually unique bodies of work.

We will learn how to listen to our images and allow the photographs themselves to provide the clues to a deeper understanding of our work. Through group exercises using various editing techniques participants will gain a strong foundation of how to organize their photographs into powerful visual sequences, developing coherent portfolios, exhibitions, book, and web projects.
