For the SE Center’s first Portfolio Call the jurors are looking for innovative bodies of work with themes or topics carried throughout. The portfolio should be a fully resolved, consistent body of work with each of the images being individually strong. The technical and presentation choices made should be appropriate for the work and should take an innovative or unique approach to the subject matter.

Diffusion scatters light, essentially making the light source broader and therefore softer. When clouds drift in front of the sun, shadows get less distinct. Add fog, and the shadows disappear. Clouds, overcast skies, and fog act as diffusion—something that scatters the light in many directions. On overcast or foggy days, the entire sky, in effect, becomes a single very broad light source—nature’s softbox. Tip: Materials such as translucent plastic or white fabric can be used to diffuse a harsh light source. You can place a diffuser in front of an artiflcial light, such as a strobe. Or, if you’re in bright sun, use a light tent or white scrim to soften the light falling on your subject.
