Selected Works

Above is Yoni Dukler’s Selected Works (see below for a link to his entire portfolio)


Above are images from Yoni Dukler’s Selected Works submission for the 2-D AP Studio Art Portfolio.  Students must submit five printed images that are sent into to be evaluated.  Students have their images mailed back to them in the summer after the evaluation is complete. During COVID-19 these images will only be submitted online.  

  • Select works that best exhibit a synthesis of form, technique, and content

  • 5 actual works; maximum size is 18″ x 24″

  • The works submitted may come from the Sustained Investigation, but they do not have to. They may be a group of related works, unrelated works, or a combination of related and unrelated works

To see how to determine the dimensions of your images, see one of these tutorials:





See Enola Lagrave’s Selected Works as a an example (click on images to see larger):


Please note that because of COVID-19 emergency school campus closures in 2020 only 5 images were submitted instead of 5.  You will be turning in 5 this year.

AP Selected Work Explanation



Each image submitted must have a short explanation of ideas conveyed, the materials used, and processes used (100 characters maximum each).  


What concept, theme, technique, message, etc. is the image conveying?

Materials used for photography is often:

DSLR or Film SLR

If your image is from a phone or tablet I would say “digital camera” not iPhone, Samsung Phone, etc.

Software used: Photoshop (even if you used Photopea), Lightroom or any others you used.


Special lenses, filters, lighting equipment

Anything else you think appropriate

Processes used for photography:

Techinques used in Photoshop, Lightroom, or other software (layer masks, adjustment layers, transform tools, gradients, filters, etc.)

Lighting Techniques during shoot

Camera settings (like shutter speed, ISO and aperture settings) that are integral to the outcome of image (for example: for a bulb exposure, how long was the shutter open? For depth of field, what was the f/stop, etc.)

Anything else you think that would be helpful in helping understand how your image was created
