In this segment we're going to talk about how to make a photography portfolio. Now a photography portfolio is different then a photography book in the way that a photography book is one theme that you think of that you think you can express well and all the pictures taken in that one theme. A portfolio should really be the most variety you can possibly put into one book. To start out with a portfolio, obviously get together a grouping of your pictures and really try and think about the different ways people use pictures. You're going to want some commercial photography, maybe some product photography which would be I would say is just well lit clear photography. Fashion photography you want to get more into mood lighting, show really that you know how to work with a person, get them to connect with the camera. You're going to want a few of those pictures so if they want to hire you out for photography they know that you can work with people well. You're going to want to try and put architecture photography in there, that's definitely important because people often with stock photography and other areas they need that more than anything else. Nature photography is important and motion photography. All these things should really be in there for any job that you're applying for and anyone you need to show this for if you don't know specifically what they're looking for that way they know you're capable of any job that they need you to do.
