Photolucida, Day One

As I mentioned before, I'm in Portland for Photolucida portfolio reviews.  The reviews are just one part of the experience.  Each day there are lunchtime chats by photographers and other industry professionals.  The first night, there is a portfolio walk, where those of us here to be reviewed get a chance to show our work to the public.  This is how much public attended:

This is not a small room. There were so many tables set up for the photographers, Photolucida organizers posted a map so we could find our spots.  And we showed work in three, hour-long shifts.  The people who came to see the work hung in there, too.  I was in the last group.  By the time the end of the show rolled around, there was still a good number of people in the room.

There was plenty of amazing work to see. Portfolio walks give artists a chance to show there work and gives audiences a chance to talk to the artists about their work.

I've got more photos of the night posted at my Flickr page.

Back to reviews and, if the weather clears, making photographs.
