Hey all =)

On Tuesday I'm going to an interview at a local college for a possible scholorship to take some art/photography classes there. I still need to work on my portfolio but I'm not sure what I want to include in it. I got the idea to ask my Caedes family for suggestions from my gallery I should bring.

This is my first portfolio, so any suggestions of how to put it all together would be awesomely helpful!

Thanks everyone =)

Like Bethany said, you have many loverly works but I particulary likes "New Age" has feeling and character. The colours are very angelic.
When placing pics near or in view of each other always make sure that each Photo compliments the ones next to them, as in colour and strength.
I dont know if this was the type of help you wanted if not then you will have to forgive a newbbie for trying...
Good luck with the interview.. Let us know how you went.

I think when showing a portfolio for professional purposes it's best to have only one or two of each kind of photo you want to demonstrate. I assume your interview is in pursuit of artistic photography, not journalistic photography. If that's the case you should probably limit your portfolio to about ten pieces demonstrating your "fractal" rendering, your photoshop phot combinations, your black and white light and shape work, your portrait work, your landscape work, and a couple of macros.

Be careful to not overwhelm your audience, and get someone else to look at your choices, so you can hear from others which of your stuff are their favorites, and why. Sometimes we get target-fixation in pursuit of a particular shot or effect, and we become convinced that a particular work or genre of work is our best when objective eyes can tell you otherwise. Best of luck my friend. Your talent is extraordinary, and needs to be developed to recognize more of your potential. We're all behind you here.

Beth, Regmar is right you should try to show as many different types of photos as possible. Landscapes are not the best for portfolios because they are considered easy to take.

did they give you a limit of how many photos. because i know when i had to do this for college it was 10-12 no more, no less.

Unfortunetly no, they didn't give me a specific limitation on images, but I was thinking within that range already =)

Thanks for the support and suggestions. They really will help ^.^
