Wow.
I just got my letter today...and I passed! I really waited until the very last minute to decide to submit. I'm a procrastinator, lol. I didn't even gather images until Wednesday night.

Phew. I tried acting like I didn't care whether I passed or not, but I was worried ;) Hence why I didn't really say much to anybody about it.

PS-thanks Greg for taking a look at my portfolio and giving me some pointers! I appreciate it more than you know!

Now to study for the exam.....

Amy - Congratulations girl! And don't worry, you'll do fine on the exam. BTW, let me know when you want to take it, and if anyone else over at DPPA wants to, and I can proctor the exam for you guys. I need to get one under my belt this year anyway. lol

I'm going to try to take it next weekend @ the PPM conference. There's a good chance I'll have to take it again, since I haven't even opened the book to study at all, lol. So if I need to do it again, I'll totally arrange something with you!

Taking mine on the 27th of this month at SEPPA. Does the Portrait exam still cover the old school stuff like darkroom and film? Been a few years since I've been down that road.
Congrats to everyone else who passed too!

You can forget about the darkroom and film categories as they are no longer there. The same theories are there in the form of digital post production so make sure you're up on those topics.(editing, color management, etc...)

You are very welcome Amy and I look forward to being one of the first to congratulate you on becoming certified once you've aced the test.

Thanks Greg...that relieves much of the stress and hours of studying...haven't done film processing in so many years!

Thanks for the pointers, too. The exam isn't offered here until July (postponed from the original March date), so I guess I've got plenty of time to make sure I'm up on everything.

Good luck to everyone taking it soon!

Good job. Now please post your Passing Portfolios (http://www.ppa.com/community/forums/showthread.php?t=21143&highlight=passing+portfolios) so those who are trying to certify have something to see.

YES!!! It took taking the exam four times, however, I passed! My leaning disability did not help - yet, keeping at it paid off.

So, passing the test can be accomplished! Even when down on yourself KEEP AT IT...
