My new evaluation criteria for my portfolio work…

From the inimitable “Burns Auto Parts Blog”



So here’s my challenge to you: look at your work on your site. Do you love it–all of it? Does it make you smile/get you excited/make you want to do more of it? Be honest–don’t look at it from its technical side and definitely do not ask “Do I think buyers will want this?” If you do, then look at your marketing.

If you don’t, then get off your creative butt and start making the work that you make out of love and that weird compulsion that makes you do this and not be a 9-5 “normal” person.



Words of wisdom indeed.  I have been working on a major portfolio overhaul, with just this in mind.  You know the saying… Show what you wanna shoot!

  1. The difficult thing about reviewing my work is that I always seem to find a reason to edit an image, whether it is increasing contrast, or noise reduction, or whatever. So I have to stop myself and leave it alone. Almost addictive to want to make small changes. Don’t you lose pixels whenever you do make changes? Not sure.
