The portfolio should include a minimum of twenty works completed in our studio sections. Works will feature the student’s ability to compose in 2D, with special emphasis placed on at least one of the suggested areas of photographic study in our program. Skillful use of the camera, competency in both traditional and digital darkroom practices, and constructive development of creative visual concepts should be evident in the learning process.
