You have taken great photographs, but they are dumped on your hard drive or memory card. Photographs are meant to be printed large and placed on the wall for all to see. This course teaches you the three stages to best show off your photographs. First, selection, editing and visual story telling. Second, the best specialist paper and framing technique to use for maximum impact. Finally, where and how to exhibit, whether this be a blank wall at home, local public space, or exhibition. Your photographs are original, and this course will encourage you to premiere them powerfully.
