SCAD Days?

<p>I'm going to the SCAD day on April 5th, and i was wondering about what "porfolio counseling" actually means. Is it just a lecture, or should I bring what I have done of my portfolio (or images?)? To further complicate things, I plan on studying metals, and I would like to show them my work, but do not have time to get stuff professionally photographed. Is it better to bring work, or to just take snapshots and bring those? (assuming they even look at portfolios or whatever)</p>


<p>Uh I wouldn't recommend bringing your work if its really big. Just keep in mind you have to lug it wherever the portfolio reviews are. But beyond that I wasn't aware of any rules regarding what type of work you can bring.</p>

<p>They usually have portfolio seminars/lectures where they just talk about what they look for and show examples and answer questions. And then they have personal counseling where you get to talk with an adviser one-on-one about your work. I think you have to sign up for an individual portfolio review at some point early on in the day, so don't forget to do that :)</p>

<p>EDIT: You know you could probably take regular digital photos. Just put your pieces in front of a black backdrop and shine some light on it. The photos won't be adequate for when you actually submit your application but I'm sure they'll be fine just to get some feedback on your work. The SCAD people were always very nice and understanding.</p>
