With summer coming quickly around the corner its now time for vacations, sun, beaches, pools, and parties. We are going to provide a few tips that will help you the most, so get your camera ready!
Don’t pack too much. When packing your camera and accessories don’t overdo it. Pack your camera, batteries, tripod and memory card. Remember to take a new package of batteries and to erase your memory cards.
Get out and take shots. Take pictures of the beach, sunrises, sunsets, and the culture you are enjoying. Don’t limit yourself, take pictures of the food, drinks, and the people around you.
Be Creative. Take photos from different angles and use different techniques.
Get up Close. When people are the focus get in close. If you are shooting your family or friends from head to toe, make sure you don’t leave much room above and below to maximize them in the composition. Cameras with a macro lens help to achieve a closer focus with clarity.
Pay close attention to the horizon and make sure it’s level. Crooked horizons can distort the most beautiful summer pictures. Utilize camera features such as on-demand grid lines.
Time of Day. Try to get your photos in the hour or two before sunset or just after sunrise, when the light is not so strong. If you find yourself pulling out the camera in the middle of a sunny day, try to face away from the sun.
These are just a few tips for summer photography. We thank you for stopping by and have a great summer!

1. Show only your best work
Only the best shots should be in your portfolio. Try to keep to short and sweet. The more photographs an employer or client has to look through the less the impact is from the previous ones. Include anywhere from 15-20 photographs or a very good balance between quality and quantity. A slim selection can leave the client asking questions where too many photographs can be overbearing. As your career grows and you learn more you will want to change out your work for things you have done more recent.
2. Get an outside opinion
Talk with someone who is an expert in this field and that you trust and get there honest opinion. You may get a better insight to what potential clients are looking for.
3. Diversify your Portfolio
Each photo should show the aspect of your ability. Do not show 100 photographs from a certain angle. Consider what types of photos will be included. Prove to the client you can diversify and handle any assignment they offer you. Every image should work toward the goal of expressing your eye and capabilities as an excellent photographer.
4. Start strong, End strong
Start your portfolio out strong, catch the clients eye. Keep this in mind with your last photo as well. This is where you want to place your standout photo, since it’s the last photo the client see. You want leave a lasting impression with the client so why not go for it. Also be sure and include a great photo the the middle of your portfolio so the client keep looking at all the photos.
5. Make different formats available

We hope these few tips will help you build a great portfolio.
