Filter photo Festival 2012 logoThis week we spoke to Erin Hoyt, Director of Programming for Filter Photo Festival. Erin talked with us about the importance of color management when preparing photographs for portfolio reviews which are part of the festival. Filter Photo Festival is billed as “the Midwest’s premier photography event.” The festival is scheduled for October 15-21, 2012 in Chicago. October is also Chicago Artists Month which “celebrates the city’s art and artists as essential building blocks in the development of vibrant and livable neighborhoods that connect to make Chicago a world class creative city.” Other festivals serve the east and west coast areas. Filter is designed specifically to address photographers in the Midwest.

Filter Photo Festival is an opportunity for photographers to come together and learn from each other. There are evening programs and daily workshops given by some of the leaders in the industry. In addition you’ll have the unique opportunity to have your print portfolio reviewed by multiple industry professionals giving you valuable feedback and critique that you can use to move your work to the next level.

Register today for the festival and take advantage of seminars, workshops, portfolio reviews, evening programs and more.
