Practice portfolio - Portrait of a Young Man as The Artist — LiveJournal

Practice portfolio
I have built a "practice portfolio" in my Flickr account.
http://www.flickr.com/photos/abmann/sets/72157594294511245/show/
Here is what I tried to do with it:
Order roughly by size of subject - I started with big and ended with small.
Within the slide show I arranged photos so that the color and subject transitions were logical as well as smooth. So, I didn't want to go from bright color to black and white back to bright.
I grouped by color and photographic style roughly as well, trying to keep photos of like style in close proximity.

Please, view the show if you'd like. I'd appreciate your thoughts.

Note: This slide show has 26 photos. My portfolio won't have this many photos. I'm just toying with arrangement for now, not the specific photos. Many of these won't be in the final print portfolio.
---
Edit:
23 photos. I changed it around because I can't leave well enough alone.

Current Mood: pleased pleased

You know...
I get bored looking at all the bw/desaturated pictures in a row... by the time I got to the color ones it was like "finally!"

But that's just me your random browsing through
Also - what are you going to use this portfolio for? I guess I don't know much about the industry but I would assume that people would be paying you to take pictures of them so wouldn't you want to include more people in your portfolio?
Maybe I'm confused.

The portfolio is a general grouping of art to show to galleries, usually. I'd be using it for that. I'd have a separate picture set were I going to show my work to people trying to hire me as their photographer for X.

Ah... that makes sense.
Then it's a good selection...
but I'm still bored by the order.

Ooh!
They look really nice slide-showed like that.

The ordering (which I like, but am not sure if there's something I'd like better or worse, it's hard without comparison, you know?) makes it easier for me to pick out ones that I *don't* like as much and that aren't as strong. But I know that's not what you're looking for.

As per usually, I have no substantial comment, other than "oooh!"
