    So I applied for this news shooter position and part of it aside from the usual resume/cover letter was a portfolio. I haven't been in the journalism business long but I did have some choice and this was the portfolio I came up with.

    Critiques are appreciated.

    What I noticed with quite a few is you seem to have missed the focus a bit or you used a shutter speed too slow.

    This makes your shots whilst some well composed seem a bit slap dahs or maybe just that you lack the skills to produce more polished photographs.

    Little details like camera shake even if small makes a picture look amateur alot of the time.
