Your home town, no matter how big or small, is full of people, places, and unique characteristics. More than likely there is much to photograph in your hometown, but too often the appeal as a creative destination loses its appeal due to familiarity. Taking part in this three month challenge will influence participants to look differently at familiar surroundings.
Photograph three (3) chosen assignments in your hometown each month. Participants will post images, along with shooting data and a brief description of the concept of your image to an established, private Facebook Group Page. Images will be reviewed and discussed online mid-month. At the end of each month, participants must make two prints (8 x 12) for each subject they covered (3). These prints will be reviewed, discussed, and critiqued by Hunt’s Photo Education team at Hunt’s Photo in Melrose. At the conclusion of the three month program each participant will seek to hang a showing of their Hometown Vision prints in their hometown (Ex. Local coffee shop, Library, etc).
Geared toward intermediate level and advanced photographers looking to expand their knowledge and creativity. This program is designed to mentor individuals seeking to delve deeper into their photographic knowledge and personal creativity. Using in-depth discussion and image critique, Hunt’s Photo Education will help individuals further expand photographic ideas and shape personal goals.
This course is limited to 10 students.
This Personal Vision Portfolio Development session will take place in April, May and June. We will contact you at the start of the session with instructions on how to begin. We will also contact you with dates for critique in each month.
