Hi,

I would like to do up a Personal Portfolio on prints for myself. I would like to ask anyone that has done before. What are the process like for the whole setting up of the portfolio from choosing the photos to printing and segregating the sections of the portfolio itself.

Firstly the portfolio IMHO should have a focussed theme so I might need to put together 2 or more portfolios

Secondly IMHO keep each portfolio bite sized to between 15-40 imAges

Thirdly be prepared to give away the portfolios if there is seriou chance For business

Keep a soft copy on your handheld

Use a book maker to dress up your portfolio

most people will think that it's best to put the "best photo" as the 1st page.

However it's better to put the "2nd best" first, then followed by the "best photo". Put the rest of the photos in between and end with the "3rd best"

The reason being, audience need some time to "settle down", so putting the "best photo" on 2nd page gives them some time to absorb.

It''ll be ideal to put the "best photo" on the last page because it's leave a lasting impression, but you need to impress them with the first few photos to keep their attention.

So it'll be ideal to put photos in order of
1: 2nd best
2: 1st best
3 onwards: the rest of the photos
last: 3rd best
