Workshop: How to Edit Photos

How do you choose great photos from the good ones? Come join in the discussion or pre-register to get feedback on your own photos as part of this informal round-table portfolio review.

Editing your photos – choosing which ones to keep or toss — is one of the hardest tasks for a photographer. A series of photos can become more powerful than any of the individual pictures, but how do you build a well-organized sequence of images?

This free workshop will be lead by photographers Stephen Frailey, who judged the Fulbright photo exhibit, and Fulbright photographer Josh Meltzer.

No pre-registration is required to attend this workshop. However, to have your photos discussed during the informal round-table portfolio review, you need to pre-register. Send your name and phone number to photo@fulbright.org by Nov. 7. Attendance will be capped, so we recommend arriving early to ensure getting a seat.
