Our world is not backlit and our photography shouldn't be either.

I'm not trying to start trouble here...but if you know me at all, I am a photographic broken record. I repeat myself ALOT and in my 15+ years of teaching photography I have always said the "Proof is in the Print" and "Shoot for the Wall" over and over and over...

This is because I do believe the print is the medium to fully express the power of a photograph. We see with our eyes, light falling on our subject, we print for the viewer as light then falls on the print. It was an amazing event to see so many great New Orleans photographers represent their best work at UNDEREXPOSED!
