  • Question about Pictures/Artwork/etc...

    As I work & learn here, creating and adding Photo Art, Retouched pieces, Manipulated artwork to my already large photography portfolio I'm finding that I want to somehow organize it and display it all.

    My questions are these:

    Besides a website, (I already have one and am working on another as I grow and learn enough to be able to "work" in the Retouching/Restoration field), how do any of you gather your work to show others?

    Specifically, I'm looking for, output sizes, do you create "before" AND "after" prints? Or do you just create a portfolio of finished work?
    Do you separate your work by the type of work, restorations, retouches, Photo Art?
    What is the best medium to display in (small/large portfolios)?
    Do you print "samples" on the same medium you may sell/give away on? (example: same type of textured paper... )

    I see TONS of great work done here, from ALL of the various Challenges. I have work from my own Photography portfolio that friends and family have requested be printed and framed. I would like to extend that and be able to show them the work I have produced via the Challenges, tutorials, tips and overall learning I have gotten at RetouchPro (and other graphic sites).

    I'd like to hear how others are doing seems to be a natural extension to display/distribute the incredible work by talented people (and myself)

    Good question.

    I print a before & after. I use SOny 4x6 paper. Sometimes I use separate sheets for before and after, but sometimes I print both versions on the same 4x6 sheet.

    I guess there's not one standard rule. I think everyone does it his/her way as long as a viewer can get thepoint.

      Dumb Question...
      by crazyfly1
      So, I would love to have a career working with Photoshop. I'm pretty good at restoration, not so much retouching. My question is; when I go to careerbuilders to search for jobs what do I search for? I know, dumb right? But I really don't know. I also wonder how to make a resume make me look like more...

      How Do You Present Your Work?
      by Jakaleena
      I'd be curious about how everybody presents their portfolio.

      I have mine displayed in a nice leather album - original on the left page and restoration on the right page, or if the original is small I display it and its restoration on the same page. The first page in the album is a...

      Portfolio Question
      by berko1021
      I currently work for a retouching house full-time, which luckily enough pays my bills but I'm looking to get into doing my own freelance work. I have my site finally set up but I'm not sure how to set up my portfolio to try and get work. I'm assuming there is a standard in NYC. I currently have about...
