    I'm looking to transfer to another school next semester to pursue a career in photojournalism. The problem is I've never taken any photo classes in my life and I don't know how to make an effective portfolio. I have plenty of work which is decent, but I was just wondering if you guys have any articles on how to make one. I've looked around and I can't really find anything. I know some of you guys in here have gone through it and I'd like to know how to put it together.

    Would you guys suggest making all the images the same size (8X10 for example) or would that just get dull and repetitive. It's only 12 images but I'm not sure as to what size to print them.
     
  5. yea if you want to make yourself look like you're only good at shooting one style... go for it :ugh2:

    Thanks for the intelligent response. Thats why I was asking.
     

  8. That was a good reply. I donno, I guess if you want to go for the PJ style and look like you've only covered one event then I guess going with one color and one size would be great.

    But me personally, I like to mix my stuff up. Different photo sizes, different colors. Maybe have a few vertical shots, then have some horizontal shots. And I'll have a few pages of portraits then some landscapes, product and commercial.

    like I said, if you want to look like you can only do one style keep everyting the same. If you want to show that you're versitile, mix it up. :bigthumb:

    just depends, if you're applying for a portrait job and you show them landscape, they'll be like :wtf:

    Most have multiple portfolios for each area.
