Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Photograph at least 200 new large format photographs throughout the Lake Superior Watershed by December 31st, 2017. Conduct at least one exhibition of selected photographs from the series during 2017 in Duluth. Would like a crop of 40-50 of the exposed imagery to be what I'd consider A+ material. Judgement based on my own tight editing standards. 50-75% of all exposed negatives should be taken outside of the Duluth/Superior region. Shooting for six or more multi-day excursions with the sole focus of photography for this project. Attendance and general feedback from an exhibition during the photographing period.
