Before the first meeting, provide a brief written statement of your proposed personal project for this session; include any images previously taken and any information that you would like the instructor to focus on to help with the development of your personal vision. This course is not recommended for beginners. Your refined photographic portfolio is the emphasis and goal of this course!
