Tonight my photography class students and I are having our very first photographic exhibition. It’ll be a light event but hopefully at least our friends and family will come to view our work. Anyone else is welcome to attend as well if you’re in the area. We have about 10 students and each of us will prepare about five images to display. I’ve never held one of these before so it’ll probably unconventional. Any tips for me?

I felt that an exhibition would be the perfect culmination of the past 9 weeks we spent studying photography. Just as writing students should publish their work, even if it’s just simply reading it out to a friend, I believe my students should have a chance to “publish” their work as well.

I’ll let you know how it goes and hopefully I’ll get a chance to take some photos too!
