Cape Town, July 12, 2016 – How good is your portfolio? Well tonight students got three different opinions, from three different instructors. And nobody left in tears.
The Orms Capetown School of Photography was teeming with students, waiting to meet the instructor who would review their portfolio. There was tension, but also support, as instructors carefully passed out hints and recommendations about the student’s pre-workshop images. On listening to the instuctors, there were many supporting comments from instructors, and plenty of smiles from students.
The portfolios were varied, as one would expect from students coming from every continent in the world (except Anarctica). Each portfolio challenged the instructor to address its uniqueness and to guide the student in a direction consistent with their photographic inclinations.
At the end of the evening, students trudged out with their heads buzzing, loaded with ideas. The tired instructors downed a few snacks and headed out for a drink or to bed. Tomorrow the instructors will meet with students for their first review of project images.
