  • shooting RAW
  • meterng modes and getting a perfect exposure

Photography 102 with Sara Keith will be offered on Saturday, September 28 at 2:00pm. The fee for this amazing opportunity is $30.00.


Sara received her first digital camera from her grandfather when she was twelve years old. What started as an after-school hobby became her life. She recently received her BFA in Photography from the Savannah College of Art and Design with a minor in Film and Television. Her personal work ranges from video installations to pet photography. She is an animal lover, food lover, and traveler. 
In addition to teaching and assignment work, Sara works with Jackson Fine Art and the Woodruff Arts Center.

The Portfolio Review will be held on September 21st, from 9 am until 3 pm, at the Stricklands Store, in Concord, Georgia. The fee is only $299, which includes a 20-minute review by five outstanding reviewers, lunch, and Soiree on Friday night (Sept. 20th).

Our reviewers this year are:  Brie Castell (owner of the Fine Art Photography Gallery in Asheville, NC), Alexa Dilworth (Director of Publishing and Awards at the center for Documentary Studies at Duke University, Durham, NC), Dennis Kiel (Curator at the Light Factory Contemporary Museum of Photography and film, Charlotte, NC), Rob McDonald (Associate Dean of faculty and a Professor of English and Fine Arts at the Virginia Military Institute, Lexington, VA), Forest McMullin (a freelance photographer and photographic educator, Atlanta, GA), and Kevin Miller(the Director and Curator of the Southeast Museum of Photography, Daytona Beach, FL)
Participating in a Portfolio Review can be an eye opening experience.  When fresh eyes look at your work, threads that tie the work together, that you may not have seen, can become apparent.  It is a great experience to meet with a reviewer in a one on one conversation over your body of work.  During the down time and after the review it is a great time to network and meet other photographers.
