Project Description

For the class project, I want you to go through your old or recent travel portraits and find a travel portrait that you like the most.

Post it to the class project section along with a description, why you like it and given the information discussed in the class - is there any way you can improve it next time? (if at all)

In addition, if you want some practice I challenge you to go outside to make some new ones implementing tips and techniques discussed in this class and post them here as well.

Have fun!

Class notes

PS. For some reason I get problems with attaching the class notes to the class. Until I sort this issue, class notes can be downloaded from my dropbox, here is the link
