My suggestion, Erin, would be to think about what you want to gain from the summer intern experience, and how that will fit with your ultimate career goals (recognizing that current goals might change in the future). Although your local community might be limited to consumer portrait shops, there are larger metro areas in Alabama that may offer a wider choice. Once you move from your local area, however, you might as well move to an area that has what you are looking for. Remember, however, that there is both the technical side, and the business/practical side to the experience. Both are essential.
