Don't forget my delay in posting; by the time this posts, I'll be back in Virginia, hopefully with lots of new ideas, techniques, and creative directions! I'll post every day while I'm here, even though they have a very busy schedule planned for us.

- Don't include multiple images that are too similar or obviously taken in the same session. It can make it look like you're indecisive or incapable of editing your work.
- Stick to either landscape or portrait orientation within a series of images. This is a tough one for me.
- Don't pad your portfolio with less than the best images, ever.
- Every image should evoke a "Wow" from viewers, without the need for explanation.
- Your portfolio should focus on a subject; that should be the subject you'd love to be paid to photograph.
- Your goal is not to show competency as a photographer; it's to show creativity as an artist.
- Use mini-sequences within your portfolio. A simple three image sequence should follow this outline: create an expectation (1st image), establish a pattern (2nd), and provide a surprise or thrill (3rd).
- In most cases, a real print still rules. However, in a pinch, an electronic portfolio can be acceptable.

Mamiya Universal Press Camera, Kodak Tmax 100 Film
As I've said before, I am thoroughly enjoying the MUP. I shot a total of about eight images (a full roll of 120 film at 6x9 format) in an hour. That's pretty fast for the MUP. It felt pretty fast for such a quiet day in Brunswick as well.
