How to compose photographer's portfolio
Select photos for a portfolio is very picky. Any pictures you decide to post there, should be of high quality. You need to be sure that they are complete artworks: for example, if you think the image needs improvement in the graphics editor, then first make it and then add it to the portfolio.
If you have a large number of photographs can be difficult to select the best one, especially if the photographer has never tried to do it. So be prepared to spend a few nights. It is best not to hurry, but quietly and meticulously to see all that you filmed for the whole period of professional activity.
In order to select the best quality photos, start by reviewing the entire archive, copying the image that you would like to put in a portfolio to a separate directory. If there are too many photos, then see all of them several times, removing those that seem worse than others. Sooner or later the best photos will be selected.
Those who are engaged in various types of shooting, you can group work into a portfolio of genres. For example, wedding photos in one place, in other portraits, genre picture in the third, and so on. If the client is interested in, for example, object photography, he'll be able to assess your work in this direction, instead of looking at mountains other pictures.
Most likely, a portfolio will you do for the website and photo book. In both cases you will need to publish certain information about yourself. Contacts, information on awards and prizes is the point of writing in both cases. Approximate prices for their services is certainly worth a place on the website on the Internet, but in the book this question is better not to touch. You can change your mind about the value of their services to correct this on the website will be simple, and in a paper edition anymore. The book should definitely give a link to the full version of portfolio available on the Internet.
