Photography from Concept to Print to Gallery


Photograph by Barbara Tyroler

In this intensive four-session course, students will plan, create, edit, and print photographs, a selection of which will be exhibited at the FRANK Community Outreach Gallery in Chapel Hill. The exhibition will take place in conjunction with the 2018 CLICK! Triangle Photography Festival and will include a public reception and a forum for the students. Under the guidance of photographer and FRANK Gallery outreach coordinator Barbara Tyroler, students will learn how to take an image from initial concept to final exhibition print. Students will engage in group critique, then choose an image to edit and print (16"x20") for exhibition, working with photographer Durward Rogers. (12 hours/All Levels)
