More Snow!

Today (Thursday) marks my fourth day working on my project. On Monday, I met with T. Nathan from Admissions to discuss the logistics of the poster as well as schedule another meeting with the Admissions team for next Monday for us to go over the first draft of the poster. I am so excited to work with such a great group of people in Admissions; as I walked in for my meeting I was greeted by lots of friendly faces who are as enthusiastic as I am about this project.

As some of you may know, we are getting even MORE snow here in Pennsylvania right now as I type this entry. I am lucky enough to have taken some photos earlier in the year in preparation for this project, so I will have photos from the fall to work with as well as the ones that I will take during these two weeks. After Monday’s meeting, I spent the next two days taking more photos of our campus; I specifically focused on the Arts Center and windows on the girls’ end of Main Hall. I spent today editing the photos I have as well as starting the layout for the poster.

My schedule for the rest of the project includes taking more photos over the weekend; hopefully I’ll be able to take advantage of our most recent winter storm and capture some snowy windows. It also includes Monday’s meeting in which I will meet with Admissions to share with them the first draft of the poster. They, as my “clients,” will be able to then make any adjustments they like to the poster so that it meets their needs for advertising the school to prospective students and their families. We will also discuss details about printing the poster. For the rest of the second week, I will be making final adjustments to the poster and then we will send it to the printers!

I’ll update you all soon, probably after Monday’s meeting with Admissions.

    Alex, sounds like your days are very busy shooting photos….how much time goes into selecting and editing? What a great opportunity to dip your toe into the world of photographer/client relations on a project you are really interested in.

    I look forward to reading more.

      I actually spend a lot of time editing the photos, most of it is cropping. I also spend a lot of time working on the layout of the poster as it takes many tiny adjustments to get it just right.
